congrats on passing. It is a motivation to see someone who didn't do well on all the NBMEs to pass the exam. Very very interesting perspective and thanks alot for sharing this. What made you still go for the test regardless of your NBME scores?

Thanks, they are offline (the corrects ones/total of questions), I read if you do the offline NBME with more of 85% corrects you are ready for the test.

I have more than 85% corrects in all the NBME offline and one online assessment (UWSA) with more than 220, that give me the motivation and confident to go for the test.

The Kaplan qbank includes two SA and they come together with the diagnostic test, you can't buy separately.

The best SA is Uworld because they give you a 3 score predictor, kaplan give you a percent.

Kaplan q bank, has a lot of weird questions that not come to the test, they no are high yield material, but if you want to practice questions is good because they are long questions, and more questions that you practice= best preparation.

The best question bank is Usmle world, read the explanation understand the material.
