    well, there is really no way to gauge how well you will do based on your q-bank scores...i think kaplan does suggest that if you get in the 65 and above range, that you are within passing...personally i don't feel q-bank is entirely reflective of the actual exam...i was fluctuating...some days 90+ on q-bank, other subjects 60'ish.

    do the nbme (gosh, can't emphasize that enough on these forums)...that will give u a much better idea of how you will do on the actual exam.

    good luck!

    ure very welcome...also, if you're pressed for time and if u don't get to do all the nbme exams, I've heard forms 2 and 3 are better than form 1.

    if you have a chance, for pharmacology i did the questions from the rapid review pharm book (it came with a cd), which i felt were really helpful.

    best of luck!

    Forms 2 AND 3???

    B,

    I've only seen two different forms on the NBME Self Assesment site - can you tell me where the third is?
    Do you have a link?

    Thanks!

    According to what I have read in the forums, you are almost there. If you can reach the 65% mark consistently, then you are quite ready to pass.

    I would agree, 65% CONSISTENTLY, sounds like, at least, passing.
