    Hey guys,
    So how many questions do you need to get right to pass on this exam, and is there a curve scale. Someone told me that if youget like 60% right you will get in 80s, is that true. ANd would you say DSCE is easier? Thanks

    No, 60% would be close to a failure. I got about 75% of the questions right and got an 85. If you are getting 60% on the practice tests study harder. As for DSCE, I believe that is the didactic portion of ADLEX, it is probably a bit more straight forward. It has more oral path than part II, and the cases are easier, I thought.

    What did you use to prepare? Where the decks helpful or a waist of
    time. I have old asda exams but I'm not sure if they will help either.
