I have failed PPD 3 (!) times. Lack of study materials and the sheer breadth of information you are expected to know have been big issues for me to tackle. There are five subsections that you get scored on, and I believe you are required to pass all five to get credit for the test. This means every single question (even the poorly-worded ones) count a lot. If you had a relatively easy time with the first three 4.0 tests, think twice about switching. Worse yet, I have to wait until November because of the three test limit.
** Thanks for the responses- and thank you to those who are taking this discussion seriously. I have been told my summation of the scoring process is wrong, here's to hoping NCARB chimes in
