Default Is UWSA accurate??

Hi guys, I was wondering how accurate the USMLE sim exam was for step2. It over predicted my score by a large margin for step 1 but the posts I've read on this forum seem to indicate it's predictive value being greater for step 2CK. Any thoughts??

It's more predictive for CK than it is for step 1.
It was off by 3 points for my CK only. I got three points higher on the real deal a couple of days after UWSA. That's pretty good.

Thanks for the reply dr88. That's reassuring. I just got 262 on uswa. I got a similar score for step 1 and it was over by a good 15 points. Go figure. Anyway, thanks.
