Thumbs Down How to learn biostat???

Dear friends,
I finished Kaplan and FA biostat. somehow I thought I had a good grip on biostatistics.
but then I did kaplan questions at the end of the chapter.
such a low score. I did 1-2 silly mistakes but mostly I just couldn't make my way to the right answer.
then uw timed mode 62%.
I am soooo sad. and frustrated and feeling stupid.
Am I the only one suffering this?
how can I improve myself??
any other book or something???

plz help.

No, you are not the only one. I faced the same problem and my friends had the same issue.

One thing for sure, the end-chapter questions in Kaplan are way difficult and do not represent the real style.

The only to improve is to keep doing questions and gradually you'll see yourself getting better and better

If you can watch Kaplan Behavioral Science video, it will add to your comprehension better than just reading the notes.
