    jojo here :)
    Starting January 1st, 2007 there are new rules for NDBE 1, they are :
    1. no more paper based exams
    2. same 400 questions, but it will be intermingled
    3. 80 % from 400 will be multiple choice
    4. 20 % from 400 will be interdisciplinary linked to a testlet
    5. no more 4 individual scores than an average, it will be ONLY one score,
    pass/fail will be determined only by this one score
    6. if you FAIL, you'll have retake the entire 400 questions (the entire exam,
    no more partial exam)
    7. 2 new subjects will be included in the new format :
    PROFESSIONAL ETHICS
    PATIENT MANAGEMENT
    8. if you fail 3 consecutive times, you'll have to wait 12 months for reexamination (otherwise every 3 months[3 times])

    I hope I was helpful.
    Any questions, please feel free to confirm it by calling ADA>
    Annnnnnd jojo out

    Hey Jojo: Thanks for the info...I can see They are making it more and more complicated..... :(
    Just to be sure that I understood, You will be able to take the exam 3 times a year instead of only 2 (under current rules), right?
