As of March 2015 there's a form 17 too. It would be nice if the moderator could update the choices so that we can keep the poll going.

I would go with 17 because it is more recent.
If it helps you this is how I scored on 16 and 17 and actual exam.
  • NBME form 16 (-4 weeks): 247
  • NBME form 17 (-2 weeks): 260
  • actual exam: 259

I agree with PeterPan's advice. The most recent NBME exams are more reflective of the current exam.

The most recent NBME exam (usually the highest number) is most predictive of your actual Step 1 exam results.

I took exams 14-17 during my prep... All the research I did before my dedicated study period pointed towards taking multiple NBME exams and this was great advice!!

NBME 16 was super predictive within 2 weeks of taking the actual exam. I know its "hard" but its accurate
