Hey

Sorry to hear about this. I know that this is a difficult time. But understand that a lot of people here have failed secondary to their lower performance in data gathering.

So, my advice for you to is to practice with others a LOT in questioning as well as writing your patient note. And then, compare your patient note to first aid. If you can, take a review course which help you to identify your weak areas.

There is no specific test center that you can take which will guarantee a pass. A lot of people say that Atlanta is the easiest, which is not true - because I personally know 3 people who failed there.

Right now, focus on your weak areas and practice a LOT.
