Stop You should not do offline NBME

You cannot predict your score from an illegal offline NBME.

This issue has been discussed several times before

Agree with Sabio. Key Answers are wrong.
You must do it online.

Agree with Sabio,

Even if your answer key is correct, you still cannot predict your score from offline NBME because the questions have different weights. Getting 5 questions wrong will get you a score different from when you get another 5 questions wrong.

Go get some money and do the official online NBME if you want to do good for yourself.

Don't say that you don't have money, because if you don't have money then you cannot pay thousands of dollars for the exam and traveling and living in USA!

The question wasnt about the online forms and wasnt about how much money you need to become a resident in the states. I think before talking about how to be ethical with the patients communinty, we should discuss how to be ethical between doctor community itself. Why getting knowledge and science is coming a matter of money? Why not at least one of the NBME/USMLE forms as an official board organization to be free for students applying for the exam as part of the exam fees and to be a real predictior of the examinee score? Iam against illegal things but when legal things arent available for all there will be the question! There are many offline NBME forms throughout the Internet availabe for public you cant prevent anyone from using it as source of there preparation for the exams. Just I dont like everytime being asked about someone pop up to talk about legality and money,With Respect.

It is true the usmle is an expensive journey and it is also true the offline NBME cannot accurately predict your score. set your target score study and when you are done do NBME online. this will give you feedback which you can work on to improve.
Goodluck

The NBME has to be self dependent financially in order to be able to assess you and other candidates. If they provide everything for free then how they are going to fund themselves!
Also, they do have free services, it's the free 150. You can do that.

If you are talking about ethics, then you should remember that stealing a copyright content is not ethical, according to all laws on earth and according to all religions and according to God. Stealing is not ethical my friend.

When you do the offline NBME or any other copyright content, you are taking something from someone without his approval, this is a pure theft.
