Iam also retaking the exam, my due date for the exam is march 28 but I can not take the exam because Iam so unready, Iam doing UW and still failing questions that I BELIEVE should be in my brain. So now am going to repay another 820 bucks and take the exam in June...I want to tell you that we are all of us in one way or another struggling but in the end if we don't give up and we work harder and trust in God, I have no doubt we shall make it. If you give up ,God has no way of helping you because He can only help you if you are trying at this....It is stressing,I cannot tell you how many times I have sat here and told myself did i bargain for more than I can chew?? But deep down I believe that if this is for me God is going to help me achieve it...I therefore lazly open my laptop and starting reading even when i feel like there's little hope for me. Iam holding onto with faith and trust in God, but i know that I also have to do my part which is studying,doing questions....maybe you should do some questions too to stimulate your brain....YES WE CAN, YES WE CAN
I hope that helps

AMEN!

There is an Iranian saying:
If God put a dream in your Herat, he saw the potential in you to achieve that goal.
Going to take it on the 31st back at my home city Texas for 2nd time.

Thanks for the encouragement.

Good luck.

guys as i am seeing u all are opening up.. even i want to share my experience..
have been studying for almost a year.. gave 2 NBMES but dint even pass..
crossed my extended eligibility..
quit studying for almost a month..
but now i feel i cant give up so easily.. so have started studying again.
some people take 6 months some may even take 18 months to give exams..
so lets fight back wid double the efforts.
it is easy.. it is doable..
