    Has anyone taken NBME 18 & 19? I heard its much harder than other NBME's for Step 1... Is the score correlated to the actual exam? I have my Step 1 coming soon and was going to take NBME 18 and 19 in the next coming weeks along with my prep. Thanks!

    I took Step 1 about a few weeks ago I also took both NBME 18 and 19. My experience was that NBME 18 and 19 were MUCH harder than the real exam. If I had to correlate a NBME to the actual exam I'd say 16 was pretty predictive for me. I scored 238 on the real exam and 241 on NBME 16. Hope this helps. -Wilks
