so if someone solved a problem correctly but did not use DA they would be marked wrong?

Yes, exactly.  

I did not make this rule and I don't disagree with you, but if the OP wants to pass their exam it sounds like they are required to use DA.  That's what my school required too.

I suck at math too so I was so scared taking Med Dosage. I practiced my butt off, watched YouTube videos on it and was able to be tutored by my teacher. Sometimes a professor can set you up with a tutor and that might help. Doesnt hurt to ask.
