I hope this is ok...I'm not a PA, but my husband is. I'm a big reader and researcher, and really am trying to find ways for him to study so he can pass his next attempt. He has failed twice. It is very frustrating for him! I don't necessarily have an answer for you, just know that others are out there. He is an amazing PA: and I'm not just saying that because I'm his wife...he did great in school (graduated with 3.4), as well as during rotations, but is also just having a hard time. his employer and co-workers love him, not to mention the patients! If you come across anything that seems to be helping you, I would love to pass it along to him! We did purchase the flashcards from Mometrix Media so I can help him study more. Hopefully they'll make a difference.
He also took it a few weeks after graduating, took a 3-day review course, and then failed again :(
Good luck to you!
