From the horse's mouth... NCARB describes how it scores the multiple choice and the vignettes. Particularly interesting to note is the fact that 15 to 20 MC questions are "pre-test" (aka experimental questions that don't count)... those are most likely the WTF? questions you will encounter.

Many people prepping for the exams, or after taking a few exams, are curious about the "best" order in which to take the AREs. The "best" answer to that question is... it depends on you. It depends on your strengths, weaknesses, your study schedule and how your personal life dictates your ability to study. However, if you think it may help you, I can tell you what my exam order was and what order I would have done it, in hindsight...
BCDS - Take this before SS, and of all the exams you probably already know the
most about this one
SS - Take the "hard" ones early
SD - Take a break from memorizing
BS - This is a stand-alone exam... with lots of content
CDS - Docs & contracts... info feeds into PPP
PPP - Very broad exam, encompasses concepts from others
SPD - Next to SD, arguably the easiest... less stress to finish up
