Unhappy motivation going down

hiee guys ...i am planning to take my exam on 6th Feb ....but lately i am getting so tired and running out of motivation .....i finished 2 reads of kaplan with videos (goljan audio for patho)with qbook (except patho coz it took so long to listen to goljan audio)plus F.A first read....actually i finished my first read in May '11 then i had a long break due to some academic and family reasons .restarted serious study in septemper and now here i am . finally i bought u world for 2 months today ....but now i feel like i am running out of energy as my friends told me u world takes so long to finish and my prep is not sufficient for feb exam......sigh * i think i am soo fatigued because o this gap in between my 2 reads and now it feels like this study thing is never gonna end and i have soo much to do :-(

any advice please....will i be able to take my exam on early feb ( my eligibility period is feb mar april) .......please i will realy appreciate your input as i feel like a looser and i really need some motivation to continue

p.s my advice for everyone who is doing first read..please DO NOT GIVE ANY GAP in your prep ....you will be really exhausted in the end !

Hey, u have been studying so much time now, I can really understand your fatigue. I studied 4 and half months and I was already extremely tired. My advice: Take a break for a few days. Just go to a place with friends or familiy and take a small break like 3-4 days and dont think about the exam. Try to resource and get ur energy back. U will still have approx. 3 months to go, so I think you will be fine with the studying. u r already on a good level now and u still have enough time for uworld. Did u already take a NBME? Best of luck!

u r going exactly at the right pace..do uworld note down points read allexplanations thoroughly.do it timed random.if possible try doing uworld twice along with a revision of KLN n atleast two more reads of first aid.u can safely give it in feb.but assess urself with nbme 11 atleast a month before ur exam then u can decide whether u shud giv it or not
