Help NBME and UW Self-assessment test

Just got confused abou these two tests.

Is anyone can give me some information about which one is more accurate in predicting the real score on CK exam? And, according to the way they compose the questions which one is more close to the real test?

Thanks a lot!

For CK, the consensus is that UWSA is much more predictive than the NBMEs. There's only the one UWSA, so use it with care. If you want to do an NBME as well, I think Form 4 is the best.

The above answer is correct, NBME 4 is the most accurate in predicting your score, because I remember having nearly 3 questions or concepts from the NBME on my real exam.

However, I feel that if you take both the NBME 4 and UW near the date of your test, it should provide you with a range for your real performance.

My stats:

NBME 4: 228
UW: 244
Real: 237

Thanks for providing us with your stats. Although, could you tell us when were these self-assessments taken compared to the real thing?
