Default Q about NBME exams

Hi everybody,

I need help about a probably-very-simple issue. On the official website of NBME the CK self a. exams are named as Forms 3,4,6, and 7. However all the people on the forums are talking about forms 1,2,3,4 (also the downloads are named that way).
Are the 1,2,3,4s some previous versions of these NBME exams or what is this


Thank you
C.

I did the last 3, and NBME 6 was 1 point away from my real test score ~week before the test.

Thank you 2cool4medschool,

Why don't you recommend the form 3?

And I am planning to buy one of them and doing the others offline. Which one do you think is the closest correlate of the real result (I mean is it what generally most people think -form 6 being the best predictor-)


Thnx again
C.
