    I am also happy, I got my NCLE "congratulations" letter. Since I have passed the ABO & NCLE, I only have to take 6 of the 9 parts of the state board in September. The letter said I got an 89 on the "NCLE scale"--what do they mean by scale? Is the highest score a 100?

    It means that whom ever threw the dart to determine your score landed in the 89 ring on the dart board. :bbg:

    Seriosuly though I'm not sure, but I know thats a high score, congratulation to all that passed.

    ABO on Nov 18 2007 - Anyone In ???

    Hello guys, I just sent in my payment for just the ABO on this Nov 18. Is there anyone taking it too? My location is 149 Berkeley Area.

    Good luck if anyone are going to take it!

    By the way, this is my second attempts; I missed the first one with 8 points.

    I will be taking the ABO in Nov in Kansas. You have an advantage..since you have taken the test before. Im sure you will pass it this time! So, what should I concentrate my studies on?:)

    I believe that is the % of the test; each test has 100% score, and you have 89%. So depends on how many question of your exam was, you can finger out how many of them were answered correctly.

    By the way, do you mind to let us know which books/source did you use to study NCLE? Don't forget to give me the ISBNs and where did you purchase them.

    Thanks and Congrat!

    hvu,
    I just received my A.A.S. in Opticianry, which included CL classes. I found the Contact Lens Manual; Volume 1, that is purchasable from the CLSA, the most educational. The ISBN# is illegible. I also used the Test Review for Contact Lens Technicians form the CLSA. www.CLSA.info. I wish I could tell you more about the NCLE but it's memory has been overshadowed by the state boards that I recently sat for.

    Just conversational, I recommend Micheal DiSanto's TOPS Manual and Videos for the ABO. Without any optical experience or schooling I got a 68 from using his material. After school, I got a 94.

    Zbogiem to all! OptiStudent.

    Forgot to thank you guys.

    I took my ABO earlier this May, scored a 90.

    But I should thank you fellow optiboarders. If it wasn't for some material accessible on this site, I wouldn't of really understood some of the formulas, and what was the best material to use (TOPS). My store had some decent material, but not as detailed as easy reading as TOPS.

    So a lil late, but thanks guys.
