I feel like I am not ready, I have been studying very hard and the past few days I dont feel like it, I have less than 96 hours to write boards. Do you think I should rescedule. When I practice 265 questions I keep getting 70% right and I am not sure if its good enough

well, i dont think you can ever know enough or be ready enough for this exam. i can honestly say that after taking the test today, no amount of additional study would have prepared me for many of the ???'s I got. they werent even things we even touched on in school.
you need to do what you are comfortable with, but i daresay you will NEVER feel ready!!! best wishes!

Go ahead and take it. Like allthingsbright said, there's nothing in this world that can prepare you for those questions. The study questions in those books are a waste. I'd recommend getting a book dedicated specifically to prioritization because it's highly unlikely you'll see anything related to a disease process. Use you drug guide religiously and nevermind the obvious side effects, like tardive dyskinesia or NMS or Bradycardia, focus on those that don't stick out--those that you say oh, I know that (but then you get a drug you think you know and realize you know absolutely nothing about it)
