What is the estimated score to get a 5 on AP Calc BC examination? One book I own says 65, the other says 81. Any ideas? Thanks!

I think 65 is more accurate.

the no-calc part is the hardest. Most people gt fewer than 50% right, but with the penality it is like a 40%.

If u do well on the others, it should average out to over 70%.

IMO, the free response is harder.

This is my experience:

The Calc BC AP test is probably one of the hardest tests as far as getting questions right, but they are pretty generous with giving 5's. The free response part is especially tough, most people I know got half or less of the free response right but many got 4's. I think I had a decent multiple choice like maybe 70% correct, then on the FR, I had 3 very good, 1 where I forgot x^2 + y^2 integrates to arctangent or whatever, and 2 where I only did the most basic first part and omitted the rest.
With that I got a 5 and a 5 AB subscore, so you are definitely not expected to ace the free response.
