    Did anybody do this? How well did you feel it actually corellated with your Step 2 score?

    I just took NBME #2, projected a 510 (220 or so)...seemed like i had a rougher time of it than NBME #2 for Step 1 where i got a 530 which projected a 226 and my actual step 1 was 233. Hopefully they continue to underestimate. Ive got a week left so ill do those free questions at some point. When are you taking it?

    Hey where did you find these free questions? What's the story behind them?

    Get them off the NBME website.

    Well, kind of like step 1 the free questions seemed rather easy...some of them ridiculously easy. I scored around 88-90% for the 3 blocks. Unfortunately, I seriously doubt this is representative of the real thing.

    I scored unusually well for both the Step 1 and Step 2 free questions. Unlike Step 1, however, the Step 2 predictor scored my high percentage with a low predicted step 2 score.

    Ah well, I have a feeling Ill end up pushing back my Step 2 either way.

    I had a hard time finding the link so after finally finding it, I thought it may be helpful for others who also had difficulty getting it:
