First of all, dont worry man ;I know its easy to say but difficult to feel, but at least just try to forget what happened.
There are many cases in which people dont get to start residency even after successful match due to visa or other issues..that doesnt mean everything is over..this is just a part of a life..

Just try to figure out what went wrong; whether some topics are weak or its just that yu got panicked during exam (it happens). stay calm and composed man; yu have got greencard, plenty of opportunities are there for you..

What coolfire has said is the truth, i have seen the marching threads and even FMG's wirh multiple attempts BUT that dont require visa are picked even before high scores, so dont be too hard on yourself

You still have a shot, you dont need a visa, and you still have till Sep. Why take it in Dec? whats the rush???? Take your time. Take a week off, and then bounce back. I didnt fail CK but I know what it means to fail with Step 1. It was a bitter pill, and it cost me a lot, but in retrospect, I look back and I smile. In life you will go through trials, thats what makes success butter. No one has ever lived if they havent been tried. As long as you still have breath, you have a chance in life. Only accept failure when your physical body is 6 feet under, and dead.

It may not seem that way right now but years from now when you look back and think about this failure you will realize that how little it mattered. Believe me , I am speaking from personal experience. You still have everything, your health, family, friends and the trump card (the Green Card). So, don't be too hard on yourself and act like a true professional--Learn from your mistakes and move on. Have you ever seen a child learn to walk--that child falls again and again but gets up every time till he/she can run--we can learn so much from a child.
Have faith in God. God acts in mysterious ways to help.

My advice:
Find a study partner.
Find out your weak areas.
Work on the gaps in your knowledge.
It doesn't matter, which resources you use but work on making/clearing your concepts.
When you are doing a QBank and when you get a question wrong explore why did you get it wrong and work on it. It doesn't matter even if you only do one topic in a day as long you do it thoroughly. Don't be in a rush to finish something. The more questions you get wrong, the better since you will learn more.

Start by doing Kaplan Q Book to find out how much you have actually retained from reading KLNs.

I usually don't recommend DIT but it might actually help you to keep you focussed.
You might want to give a try to FA CK if it suits you. Remember, there is no one plan fits all so you have to change your approach since the previous one did not work for you.
Toward the end of your prep do UW at least 2-3 times and don't go for the test unless deep inside you feel ready.
