I will only say that dont rely on NBMEs .....they are out-dated ....Pattern of exam has changed from august and no NBME gives an accurate correlation with real score.....U can try UWSA though......Heard that its better than NBMEs in score correlation....... !!!!

BEST OF LUCK

I believe UW % and UWSA are most predictive of ones score.

I've heard that the free 150 q's of the USMLE practice material are the closest to the real exam, & give a fair idea of your actual preparation

You will do fine.
Just relax and have a good night's sleep the night before--It is the single most important thing you can do now to get a good score.
You know that what you know is that you know to be more than enough.

Good luck.
You are well prepared, just keep your cool since this is not only going to be test of your knowledge but also stamina and mental toughness.
Remember. one question is just that --one question, So, don't let any question affect you to the next question. In the end, if you are stuck, go with your gut.
