hi, theres really no restriction to the number of forms you buy, it depends on how deep your pockets are. there are just 4 forms in total. you could spend $210.00 on all 4.
all the best!

Default UWSA more predictive ?????

I heard that for step 2 CK, UWSA is more predictive of the real exam score than NBME's (esp 4).......is that true ????

I only have 8 days and I am in the same boat as you.
I am doing MTB 2 & 3 and going to do NBME 2 & 4 to see where I stand.
You have lot of time to fix whatever is wrong in your preparation.

What type of score on UW do you think would be good enough to do the exam on (Lets say good enough would be comfortable pass of 215-220). Currently im scoring 60% on the qbank mixed. I have 2 Months (approx 10 weeks) till July 25th for my CK exam
