I just failed my Psych-tech State exam for the third time and I'm beyond disappointed in myself. I've used the Mt Sac Psych-tech Review practice questions online as well as the San Bernardino book to study effectively yet I'm still failing. Also, I've study with the Nclex PN mastery app and watched YouTube videos to help with my studies. Idk what I'm doing wrong but I'm not going to give up. I know that God haven't abandoned me and he will give me my victory.

Hi sorry you are not passing your exams. Do you have friends who n passed who you can ask for tips?

What program did you attend?

Yes, they've gave some tips and sent me some study notes to go over. I've also been practicing Basic Nursing questions because that's what I'm scoring low on the most. The problem with me is that I have real bad testing anxiety and I second guess myself alot. Furthermore, I have a bad habit of going back to change my answers.

i am so sorry! I really think test anxiety has alot to do with it, you have to believe in yourself and really take your time. Without second guessing. I have never taken the test, so I can't even offer you more feedback. I Really hope someone else on here can shed some light on the proper study methods, techniques even study facebook groups.

Thank u so much, your encouraging words itself means alot to me. I will be retaking the test again towards the end of the year. Hopefully, it will be my last if not, I'll keep trying until I pass.

Approach personnel at your school for help. They have a vested interest in you passing.

How many practice questions do you do a week? do you review the rationales?

you should try and get a tutor so you can pass this time. The more times you retake, the less your chance of being successful.

I wish you the best

I try to get as many questions I can get everyday. Also, the sites and books I read have a lot of rationales that makes it easier for me to understand. Furthermore, I've recieved help from people that passed it the first/third time to see what I need to do differently. Thank u for your advice
