Sana do the paid version; I just did it (I'm devastated by the way) and for me it's wake up call!!
don't wast your time for an offline version; which is not predictive since the answers are made by people like you and me

Yeah I would suggest not doing the offline for practice...the main problem is that many of the answers are wrong, so if you do it you won't be sure of the answer. Since you've been doing online ones and that can get to be pretty costly, I would suggest making exams from your question bank, i.e. do 4 blocks of question in UW or Qbank. That way you can review the answers and still get an idea of your performance without having to pay $50. When you feel you are doing sufficiently well with those, then you can do another NBME.

Sana you should go through FA one more time, try to figure out what details are you missing and memorize everything like crazy; it's your weapon
do some random questions as well and try again another NBME

Actually I use gunnertraining religiously, have been using it for about 5 months now and highly recommend doing the questions. If you weren't so far in your prep i'd suggest the flashcards, but at this point questions are probably the way to go.

Its better to not do NBME at all than do offline NBME and destroy your concepts. Seriously. Gunnertraining is waaayyy better than offline NBME.

I'm not sure what exactly is the problem you're having? you don't have to use Facebook, when you click on the link, a page comes up with the options to sign up on the right hand side of the page. One button says "Start your free trial now"; don't click this button if you don't want to use Facebook. Below that is another button that says "Sign up with Facebook". Again, don't use that if you don't want to use Facebook. Then, below that are boxes for you to fill out your info, fill those out and you will be signed up.
Hope that answers your question?
