  40. I went one by one on each question and compared. I got a 39/45 or like a 87%. I would share the answers, but I can't copy and paste them. Not saying it's bad to get all your answers from one guy or anything, but after I was done with my test I compared my answers to the "nobody and dynamite" guys, more than half of the answers are different, either don't cheat or use at least a little of your brain when you cheat.
