Hey doxorubicin!
I can really understand how u feel right now! My step is on the first of dec. and I have been studying for a long time now. Tank empty I guess if u want to score over 240 u might need some more time. But u definetly need to take a good break from everything. Because if u dont, u will get even more exhausted and too tired to study and be motivated. Its up to you to decide whether more time will help u or not. When would you take the exam then? In case u reschedule, defin. take a break!!! best of luck!
