Default Earned Level Question

I've heard a wide variety of opinions on ADAPT earned level versus actual test difficult. At what earned level would you all rate exam P? Also (AND PERHAPS MOST IMPORTANTLY), is it more useful to spend most of my study time creating custom exams within this difficulty (of the actual test) rather than doing (for example) earned level 9 difficulty tests?

I have passed 4 exams in a row with Adapt. My actual score has always been my EL score, rounded to the nearest integer. Furthermore, Adapt helped me get a 10. I would slowly work your way up and challenge yourself when you get the chance.
