    These questions should be best answered by the Joint Commissions wherever region you belong. Email or call them.I am sure they are more than happy to answer them for you,after all that is their job & got paid for it by the fees you guys paid.

    i took my part 1 in new format. still waiting for the result. Only difference - there are 400 mixed questions and around 20% testlets... that's it.
    concentrate on kaplan review book, dental decks and released q's papers. this is enough for part 1.
    Best of luck to all.
