  friend
u know sometimes we donot get every thing in ife in one attempt.we dont know what God has planned for us,but
I know a friend who failed step one twicw and last month she passed it with a flying score of 95 ,so its not impossible.
try to find your weak areas ,and work on it.be regular cosistent and confident.believe in Godyour hard work and in yourself specially.
keep in mind you area doctor ,when u can become a doctor u can pass this exam also.just believe in u and God that your hard workwill be rewarded.

  Hi juancarlos, recoil and fire again, even the NASA guys sometimes fail to meet the mark. You are in a better state now because you know your enemy well enough to prepare apropriately. Take this as atraffic stop, read again and when you feel it turning green try again,if you get to another stop do the same. Its all about passion , endurance, toughness, its not about who is bright or not, at this stage we are all part of the brightest minds of our lifetime. Lets march again, even if you dont see us we all are marching with you. Lets go, lets go some hurting body is waiting for our special touch. left right left right feft right... step by step step by step.........

  just push it to one side......take 1 week off to be with ur family.....then spend 1 week deciding where u were weak using ur result sheet....then make a schedule and change the stategy u used before.....

maybe this time focus on more questions if u didnt do that last time etc etc

for everyone who posts here with a pass, there are many who dont pass and dont post....u r definitely not alone....and not the first or last who has failed a step and then gon on to get all steps and residency....

think of it as a bump in the road.....keep on driving.....dont stop.

  Look for your weak subjects and focus more on them, plus do UW and more questions than you did b4. Also do NBME a month before the exam that will tell you where u stand now and build you confidence.
