Measuring brake pad wear

How is brake pad wear measured? I have had two mercedes service centers give me different reports on my rear brakes. One says the shoes have 40% left. The other says only 20% remains. Is a tool used to measure pad thickness or is that an eye-ball opinion? I'd like to make my own evaluation and do my own pad/shoe replacement.
