Don't give up
Exam content outline is domain wise which are basically project management processes. If you could not score target in any of them than that is the area you need to concentrate. In most cases it is not that someone did not study the process or a particular knowledge area, it's the application of that knowledge to practical situation as questions in exam are scenario based.
My advise would be go through Guide to PMBOK and any additional book you are following, again.
Must try as many scenario based questions as possible, there are fast track software available on-line and you ca purchase them too. Once you start scoring 80-85% in those questions, you should be ready to retake the exam.
Good luck

Yes examining the tasks in the exam content outline is important, as some of the questions are based on these tasks.

Good idea to find gaps in your knowledge area and prepare again keeping in mind where to foucus

Shebab,

Exam analysis on each domain performance is a very strategic approach to fill up your knowledge gap. Good luck for the second try.

Shebab,

Have you given any simulation test? I think, online simulation test like pm-exam-simulator.com can fill up the gap and bring high confidence to sit for the exam again. For this you have to bear a cost.

Hi Shebab,

Sorry to hear about your first attempt. Like Mansoor suggested please identify the gaps based on the exam analysis report and try to do more mock questions on those knowledge areas where you didn't scored well.

I found mock questions from pmtraining.com very helpful.

Anyway good luck and all the best.

Hi Shebab,

PMStudy is a good resource for mock exam questions. The mock exams will definitely help you identify your gaps.

Good luck on the next attempt.

Aws,

it seems that you are focusing on exam practice rather than going deep into the subject and studying. Solving exam questions (more than 2 full exams) is a waste of time and does not add a lot of value.

What you should have done - after the first exam - is to find your weak spots and go after them

Shebab,

You must receive a score card of your first attempt. Score sheet gives a high level analysis of domains where you missed to score well.

Try to focus on weak areas through selective mock tests and concept examinations before appearing for second round.

Thanks
