  Hello Sicomico..........a dear friend told me "if you pass step 1 the first time are lucky".. so don't be hard on yourself.
Yes it is a lot of hardwok.........BUt you have determination & courage to take the exam a second time & now you want to make it right the third time..........That requires an APPLAUSE........... Yes you are strong willed, that is the first step.

Doing a lot of questions will help you indeed..........but do them so you will understand the concepts.
I don't understand, are you going to study only for a month & then take the exam. please give more input so that we all can share our thoughts. Best wishes.

Also please take time to read this post.
