I also failed (in 75). I had done Kaplan live review, had scores in the 58% to 68% on my qt's and readiness. Still failed. I'm retaking it so I can't tell you what works without a doubt (and everyone is different) but I highly suggest Hurst. I think I partially failed from nerves and partially failed because I just had the questions and areas I did not know. I was prepared for the beasts like cardiac, electrolytes/fluids, etc. and I had no such questions. I had random maternity ones, and surgical procedures I didn't know. I like Hurst because I'm visual. They take you through each topic in a particular order and as you go you fill in blanks in their book (you print). They repeat and tie systems together frequently so you actually know it, you don't memorize systems. It has great Facebook reviews. Right now I'm going to finish up Hurst and then begin questions, once I know I'm good on content so I can understand where I went wrong and why. Then I can rewatch those vids.
Failing is awful, it's devastating really. But you can do this! My only recommendation is that everyone has advice (I've gotten so much and some contradicts others, everyone learns differently). I would review content even if you feel good with it (can't hurt to go in feeling confident, knowing you did your due diligence). Then questions. I'm doing Saunders. Hope this helps!
yeah, i've heard that hurst is very good too. i'm still on my downfall right now, probably i will start my review within next week or after i got the official result to see if which area i am weak with.
