Then stop studying!!!! I went through this 'fatigue' stage, too. A week before my exam, I didn't study at all. The week of the exam, I tried to baracade myself at home with the plan for last-minute cramming but for some reason, my ENTIRE family showed up out of the blue. They had no way of knowing that i was testing that week since I told NOBODY! But, that visit kept me occupied with non-NCLEX thoughts and then on the day of the exam, I walked into Pearson Vue at 0800 as an LPN and walked out after 58 minutes and 75 questions as an RN without having a chance to do my cram session.

Your 'fatigue' will only place added stress on you which can lead to poor critical-thinking skills; something you do not need on exam day. You've each spent a couple of years at least in nursing school and if you have this 'wore-out' feeling, you've logged countless hours of NCLEX preparation. I say relax; you've done what you're supposed to do to be ready. Good luck to you both!!!!
