Other than the NBMEs being a really good assessment tool, what's the point of doing them? There are answers available online, but the reliability of some questions is somewhat iffy. There are no explanations of answers given either. So other than telling me where I stand in my preparation, what's the point? Am I not better off doing the uw self assessments that atleast give me explanations to answers so I can take something from the exam and learn things that I didn't know.
