failed at 75 second time 1st time 130

  1. I took my test on the 15th, I just reviewed my result on quick result and saw that i failed. This is my second time. The computer shut off at 75. I was so sure that I passed. the first time it shut off at 130. I had a pretty good understanding of the questions. Please someone explain to me what I did not do right. I also studied using Kaplan's materials. I thought I knew the strategies and the content. I don't even know now know what to do or how to start studying again and how i should start. Please someone give me some encouragement.

    It seems like a lot of people have to retake the exam. Is there a friend you might be able to study with who could help you identify your weak points?

    juz be patient and try to study much harder. Focus on your weaknesses and try to practice answering questions more often.

    I know it's hard to hear "It's ok and to keep trying" but you HAVE to. I'm sure you are a very smart person and you just have to keep your spirits up and to make sure you focus on you're weak points while you're studying this time around. I've heard really good things about suzanne's plan maybe that's something to look into. But PLEASE don't loose confidence in yourself, you're a smart intellegent person and you WILL pass it the next time you take it.

    Have you tried the Hurst review? They offer live and online classes, and the online is the exact same lectures, so if you don't live close to them you can still do it! They guarantee passing or they will do "remedial" teaching if you don't, which is cool. They don't give up on you! Or they will give you your money back if you choose. www.hurstreview.com

    I went to the live class and watched the videos at my hospital, and I thought it was great.
