I failed my permit test...what now?

I took the MA permit for the first time today and failed. Yippeee... I don't know what to do now. People tell you "you have to read the book" but it's too hard for me personally to just sit there and read the book (i think it's how it's structured - which isn't surprising because the rmv site is a mess). I found that out quickly, so i did some practice tests online and got around 90% correct on general info and 74% correct on fines consistently. I talked to people and they said it was extremely easy...so i went in ready to pass. While taking the test i panicked knowing it was timed and rushed, which caused me to get some wrong that i actually knew, and i also got some dumb questions l didn't even think would be on it (how many licenses does the rmv offer / how close to home are most accidents).

After all that ^^ i failed, and was too mad to do it again. It just left me feeling empty, stupid, and scammed out of $30. Dont know what to do now, the online tests didn't do anything and i CAN'T study the shitty book...

So you feel scammed because you didn't pass, but... you didn't properly study, you assumed it would be easy and you don't realize the importance of some of the questions? Study, be prepared, keep your head and take it seriously and you might pass.

I said i studied online. The only thing i didn't study was the book, but i do want to. I can't concentrate on it. It's a mess of random info, which is why i went to a practice test online which gives me questions to answer. The online test is neat and organized. The book is just as confusing as the rmv website. I used http://driving-tests.org/massachusetts/ to study.

The book is going to feel as boring and awful as you can imagine but it's part of becoming a grown up. Some things will be unpleasant but society doesn't change them to your standards. My son failed the test 3 times, he appreciated it so much more once he passed. Just remember, insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.

You get like 3 chances before you gotta pay again just take your time and don't stress about it a lot of it is common sense and I think the most accidents happen within 2 miles of your home

You read the book and learn it. Winging it doesn't work on the road so you shouldn't be winging it on the test.

You gotta grow up a little more. Then you may pass the test. Using words like shitty defines the quality of your character.
