passing standard..

I went to 265 and just got my results...I was above passing standard on a couple and near the passing standard on others. I have rescheduled already and have approx. 6 weeks to study!! I did Kaplan last time...any suggestions?

I HAVE TO PASS next time, it's not an option!!! I'm willing to do WHATEVER it takes!!!!!!!! Any advice is appreciated .

Do not rush to resit the exam. Do practice lots of questions and read the rationale. Even if you got the question right the rationales will help you look for key words in the question to answer rightly

I too failed my first attempt. I studied 12-14 hours a day, 7 days a week for nearly 2 months. I used the NCSBN review mostly, did a few virtual ATI , completed Kaplan twice and did questions from every resource I could find. I got all 265 questions and received near passing or above passing on all areas but 2. I am determined to pass the next time but I'm scared because I feel like I need to change my way of preparing but not sure what I need to do. I do know I will be doing the prioritizing & delegation book because those questions really tricked me. I am scared that the second test is going to be way harder than the first one so again, do I study as much as round one or did I truly "over" study. I'm not a quitter and I won't give up but advice for testing again would be so appreciated.
