Arrow NBME Form 2 For the CK, How Predictive!

Can anyone pls. share your thoughts about NBME 2 compared to other simulation tests and real exam? I just did my first NBME (I did number 2) and boy did I do it poorly! I got 202 (barely passed!)!

And this NBME was done after finishing UW (66%) and 70% of kaplan Q bank.(63%-will complete this Qbank soon).

Any advice?

Default Dont worry

NBME's are outdated for CK.....NBME's for CK are not good predictors as they are for step 1.....

dont worry ..just carry on with ur prep....UWSA is very good predictor...save it for the last and take it after full prep ie a week before actual exam........

I just took my nbme and got a 410/209, I know you say these are not good predictors for the new CK. I have been averaging random timed mode on uworld of 74%, and I got this horrible NBME score and my exam is in 3 weeks. Im freaking out now. Is the best thing to do just to keep hammering uworld at this point. Should I waste my time with NBME's if they are not good predictors. How well did uworld assessment predict your scores? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Thanks for the reply, I hear you and agree. At this point I am on my second run through of u world, got a 73% average timed/random the first run through. I figure it's decent and know matter what I gave it my best shot, hopefully that will yield me something decent...
