Do the NBME's get harder progressively, and which one is the hardest? For an actual score in the 230's, what should I be getting?
I have heard that 1=5<2<4<3, but then again, it all depends on your strengths and weaknesses along with what you have and haven't studied when you take them. I have also heard of most people getting somewhere around their 2,3,4 scores (when they take them just before the test), maybe a little higher, maybe a little lower depending on how lucky you get on the big day.
