Is it normal to feel less prepared the more you study?? I test Tuesday, and have been studying daily since graduation, but really started dedicating myself after Christmas. I have a 99% on ATI, got my "green light" from virtual ATI, 95% on UWorld Q Bank, and both UWorld assessments were "very high prob of passing," but I feel like I know nothing and am regressing!! Can you study too much? I am currently doing about 100 questions a day, sometimes more depending on platform. I just feel like I get so much wrong. Is this normal?? Is it just stress?? Any advice would be welcomed. I feel like I'm losing it up in here!!?

That's what I've been feeling. It feels like I don't know anything.
