SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) So now that the NBDE Part I is pass/fail there are many rumors that all you need is 225 to pass. I take my test in 6 days & I'm losing motivation to study...literally just staring at my notes. I've studied solid for about a month now, anywhere from 8-14hrs/day, no days off. I've read the First Aid, gone through the decks and have taken 4 released older exams, with just an average score of 250...my highest being 269. My question: am I ready to take my exam?! I just need a pass Background info: 3.4 D school GPA, BA: Chemistry, DAT: 20 (just you're average gal).
