Unhappy Failed Step 1 and Tired of it

I lost all hope. Studied 13 months pass NBME form 4 5 6 7. I feel ending it but I don't know what to do. I need motivation. New material. Can someone help me come up with solution for taking step 2 ck and add it to step 1. I'm tired of it

on which forms? I'm not to sure what that result is on the step. But if you took them a while ago, then you can redo them after you re-prepare. Your motivation should be to kick this exam's but!

How far away from your exam date did you take those nbme's. like 3 month, 1 month or like 1 week away to exam date.

I have heard of people changing their study material after a failed attempt. Usually it does not go good for them. You should stick to the books you used previously, except for the question banks. Also try to solve A LOT of questions this time!
