You shouldn't be afraid to resit the exam, in fact, your should be more confident. Why? Because now you know how the real exam looks like and what are the questions that are asked.

Now here's what you should do:

- Study the PMBOK, read it again and again and again. Remember all the questions that were in the exam and try to relate them to what you're reading in the PMBOK.

- Think the PMI way: The PMI believes in its PMBOK that there is something called the project manager's heaven, in which everything goes according to the book, and all the conflicts/issues/risks can be resolved by following the PMBOK. We all know it's not true, but our opinion is irrelevant as PMI thinks this way.

- Study Rita Mulcahy's PMP Exam Prep.

- Have faith in yourself, and remember that you can still take the exam another time.

- Make a target to resit for the exam in a month from now.

Most likely you will pass!

The best thing to do at this point is look at the printout that you received from the test center.  It should help you understand which knowledge areas and processes you need help with.  Hopefully its just one or two.   Make a concerted effort to review those areas and then re-take the test while everything else is fresh in your mind.

If you did pooly in three or more areas, you may need to consider if you can obtain some addition on-the-job training or would benefit from some additional intensive review.

Good luck!  Drop me a line if I can be of further help.

Yeah, once you have completed your exam you will get a printout of your exam result. From that you can find out in which knowledge area you need improvement, work on those areas and fill your gap. I can suggest you one thing that you can refer "Rita " book to pass your exam because i have used Rita's book and it was helpful much. Hopefully next time you will pass.
