I am sorry you felt bad, but you will pass, i will pray for you.
I also took the exam and didn't pass, I am resident as well as, with exprience. The reason is that all these commercial sites make it look damn hard and they all have similar material, and I was fooled to follow their perscription, when I do it again, I learned that the exam is like real life, patients never give you text book symptoms, but very vague.
It is not hard, just think of it as a doctor, how can you proceed with this patient to save his life.
You can do a million questions but if the fundmentals are not there, all the questions will look like kaplans or USMLEWORLDs , and I did that felt great and failed the exam. Now I have limited resources, and as reference, washington manual, that is what we use in residency.
If not, we can go from kaplan to UW, to premier, then to ....., and will keep wandering what happened and start to suspect that if we are smart enough. The beneficieries of all this kaplan, UW, premier... they are making handreds of thousands in peoples suffering.
With the same BS material.
Have a good weekend Boys and Girls.
