same situation

Hi,
am also stuck in same situation I was supposed to take evil NBME in next 5 days but now I realized that I don't have enough confidence and neither is my knowledge complete that I could take NBME.

So I have decided to go through course esp my weak points, do FA in details and uworld complete. I think if u feel like u do know most of the high yield subjects like d back of u r hand and have good uworld score go ahead and give it.
It will definitely help u in finding out u r weak points.
And if u r unsure review FA again word by word.
Fix a date in next week and give NBME.

hope this helps u!!

hey ,

I am also in the same condition.

I have purchased NBME 5, but still I am not having enough confidence.
although ma exam is in march, and also I haven't started UW yet, but I wants to check where my prep stands, so that I can focus on a particular subject.

So guys,
FA is taking me some time, so first I was thinking to do NBME 5 just after finishing FA and before UW.

But now I am thinking of doing UW and FA side by side.... and to do the NBME by the last date of my purchased form, i.e, 26th Jan.....

Which idea is better??????

Plz help............

Do NBME after finishing FA and then do another NBME half way through UW and then do another NBME right before your exam :rolleyes:

quite honestly... you should attempt nbme 1 as soon as you leave medical school... Its the exam that tests the main main basics.. It allows you to focus on subjects which you need to focus on in order to increase your score.
