I am trying to measure off a drawing. Do I need to scale the drawing first? Then what do I do ?

No, there is no need to scale the drawing. If you used the drawing with a 300 dpi printing mode, then all the measurements will show normal values, even if the image appears to be big and clear. Simply enable the rulers then you can measure the drawing. Most of the CAD applications offer the possibility to get very accurate measurements about the total size of the drawing. You can also get information using Print Preview in your application.
