Hi Friends..

Just out of curiosity , i wanted to ask few things...

How much ASDA papers questions resembles true NBDE exam? I mean thinking in aspects like how many questions repeated from ASDA, is the pattern same of asking? or the level of toughness is same in NBDE exam or more tough?

-->If we do all ASDA papers .. from I-A to I-N we can cover up essentially major 95% of the topics?


Last and important... after reading all the theory part form the relevant material like DECKS , KAPLAN,

how much all of u guys score out of 100 question from each subject? note that this is just 1st time view...

Just want to get an idea.. if u studied theory and later do 1st time ASDA paper.. how much do u expect the correct answers? i mean certainly reading theory and than doing papers for first time, it will have different view... and we get more insight of how the questions asked.. but if one is thinking to get above 90.. how much one should expect, that he/she has studied good as per the first view in papers?

Please post your replies.. with proper guidelines relevant to ASDA paper.

people might be feeling the fear of god....aka the ADA.

You are not allowed to discuss anything about your board exam. People break that rule all the time and get away with it.
A lot of people release memorized questions, and their overall experience.

I rather not even talk about it. Not even over private email or phone call...You never know who's listening; or reading...

I know of a couple of people who have been sent back to take part one and had their scores voided because the ADA has found email evidence of them sharing details about their exam.

My 2 cents.

thanks buddy for the information...


I would like to clarify My question is not about which questions are asked in NBDE or if anyone remembered questions.. I just wanted to know the level of ASDA papers as compared to level of real NBDE...

I would request admin if i have violated the rule in any case.. to close this thread...

I have no intention of sharing any NBDE remembered questions.

no problem. I already took part 1, but failed miserably with a 68. I'm focusing more in ASDA exams and decks, and less on the Kaplan Review book and Mosby's.

I have this Iphone App, NBDE Part I by Upward Mobility (yeah, there's an app for that) which has a Test Mode that's great for improving my test taking skills. The questions are a bit more difficult than in real life, but I guess that's always good. The answers are very generalized (ie: D is the right answer because.... but it doesn't explain why A, B and C are incorrect), but overall it has been very handy in times where I don't have my decks or exams.
