so hi there

last month before the exam is extremly the most important month of your whole life

a lot of exam taker used to take mock exam to be prepare for the big day

now from doing a little search i did manage to gather many simulation test good to be done

the question is in what order you have to take them?and here is some insights

1-according to high yield (e.g. FRED and NBME7 should be the latest cause some questions come from it)
2-according to grading blocks (e.g.FRED first cause it is 3 blocks -kaplan simulated test cause it is seven blocks so you start from 3 to 4 and finish by 7)
3-according to the prediction (e.g. NBME7 and UWSA1,2 should be the latest cause they pedict your score and whether you have to postpond your exam or not)

ok lets start

1-FRED V2 from usmle site so simiar to the exam
2-Pretest Clinical Vignettes http://www.amazon.com/Clinical-Vignettes-USMLE-Step-Self-Assessment/dp/00714229198 Blocks
3-Kaplan Simulated Test 7 Blocks so similar to the exam situation
4-NBME 7 predict your score+some usmle questions come from it
5-NBME 1-6 i dont know
6-FA Q&A 7 Blocks so similar to the exam situation
7-UWSA1,2 predict your score

i think it is better that month from the exam that we should prepare our self to the situation

to start by 3 blocks then increse it to 4 block then to 5 block then six and finally 7 and the last one is to be 5 days from the exam from the same start time with the same break you would like even with the same clothes(trigger memory in the big day in the center)
