    I know how you feel, so what I do now is 50 questions minimum so that I am still doing questions but if I start feeling exhausted then I take a break watch tv or call a friend and then I go back to it.

    Just continue doing questions but it is best to do a minimum amount of question and concentrate than to do a lot and not be focused. When did you graduate? Maybe you need a few days off.Maybe you should focus on your weak areas instead of doing a ton.

    Keep up the good work and in the end I am sure it will all work out. You will be happy you are well prepared

    If you have another 4 weeks then may be worth considering taking a couple days off and giving your brain chance to relax. Studying since Jan is a long time and it may be you just need a break before the final push.

    you can still afford to take a couple of days off even if 3 weeks away. even 24 hours rest will get your brain back in gear. carrying on studying when you say you already feel overwhelmed and over "stuffed" isn't going to help

    You will hopefully feel better having the break. I would also suggest taking the day off before the exam as well

    have a great day and try not to come on here
