Default Uworld as a self assessment

Hi, I am appearing in step 1 in August. I have started my uworld online subscription for two months.

I need to ask one thing guys

Should i use uworld to assess my preparation ???
I did 4 blocks so far and i scored 69%, 63%, 59% and 48%.

How much should i be scoring in uworld in order to get a target 250+


I dont need the views only, i need ur sincere advices and replies !!!

May God Bless You

UW is not a good instrument for self assessment cause it shows weak correlation with actual performance on exam (as u may find on the pages of this forum).Better way - NBME forms, esp. last ones.

IMHO NBME 16 is closest to 60% of exam questions. The rest - is weird stuff like devilish experiments, anatomy etc.
