Default Urgent call for HELP

Hi...
I have planned my exam in a month's time, so can any one suggest me which NBME to give as the last assessment test before going for exam...!! I want to give either NBME 7 or 6?
I gave NBME 4 some months ago, when I began preparing, I had gotten 229.
Will highly appreciate the input..

Try to give both. But, if you have to choose, then its always better to pick the latest one i.e. NBME 7.

Thank you so much DNA10..Yes I want to give only one of these. I can afford this much only. How predictive was NBME 7 in your case?

Struggle-Okay, so NBME 7 was NOT at all predictive in my case. But possible reasons, first, I gave it nearly 5 weeks in advance of my exam date and secondly,during my time (Around Nov-Dec 2014) it was notorious for under predicting. Now that may have changed with time and NBME might have calibrated their Nbme 7 score, I really can't say.

But, I would still say go for the latest NBME, as concepts and style of questions tend to be more predictive of the actual exam.

Here you can read my experience- It is NOT always about the assessment scores!

Hope that helps..Good Luck!
