I got a 147.


Wow, that is crazy!


Where can one acquire some of this magic morphine?

110. Watch the barbri lecture, and read about half the barbri outline. Did about 1 full practice exam (untimed).

so everyone reporting here passed with flying colors although i guess people don't want to report if they failed

i'm still confused as to how the curving or equating or whatever works...if, like, 32-38 questions right out of 50 yields an 85, is it like every question after that that you get right gets you a whole bunch more points? i don't even know why i am saying this since i really should not give a shit, but i have to admit that i am curious about how many i got right

I studied for 2-3 hours on a bus ride home and got 4 hours of sleep prior to the exam. 98. Felt like I got a total of 5 questions right walking out of the exam.

32 questions correct out of 60 yields a score of around 85. ~27 questions correct out of the 50 which are scored yields a score of around an 85.

Welp, got a 69.

This is a combination of me barely studying for the test and being historically bad with multiple choices.

Elsewhere I read it the 32ish does not count the ten experimental. It seems weird to include the ten experimental questions in advising people how many they need to answer correctly unless getting them right counts toward your score. It does make more sense to me that 27/50 = 85 because I only felt certain about maybe 15 questions but still got a 133.

(Prep companies use the "## out of 60" because the test taker should not be attempting to guess which questions are experimental.)
