Please don't get your essay edited from Jam.boree... I have just applied for Fall 2012 and had to write the entire SOP myself, as the quality of essay given by them was very low with very poorly framed sentences and lots of grammar mistakes. Altho...

I wrote this for few of my friends preparing for GMAT.. hope it helps few more pplMost Important:
1st GMAT Prep Test- 14 days before exam
analyze what's weak start working on it
2nd GMAT Prep-4-7 days before exam
Try and work on bigger things like timing, strategy etc
Rewrite test 1-2 just 2-3 days before exam
PLease practice all test at a single sitting(exam conditions)
Dont worry about AWA much.its a last day thing or u could finish it of now only. practice once or twice before exam not more than that.
Integrated Reasoning -this schools care less about this section so dont focus too much on this section
beatthegmat.com-Very Imp
Now if u have any section weak or have problem wid some area. go to this site read blogs by others.really helpful
Also many ppl have written blogs about what to do or what not to do
u also have free test from this site which have lins on beatthegmat site
Princeton Review-very good almost like GMAT....level is very similar...
Kaplan-U can give their free test once...they conduct it every week.,,once is enough
Manhattan-dont waste ur time on their test...u may give the english section bu dont touch maths
Vertiras-better than manhattan but lower than kaplan and princeton
Official GMAT Book-
All questions should be done once and questions which u answered wrong in 1st attempt..pls redo...
Best book available
Manhattan Sentence Correction-
Very useful book but as u have less time u can skip this book, but if u feel u really bad at SC pls complete this book withing 2-3 days.
Dont worry about last 3 chapter in this book which is for advanced users
While giving mocks and final
1) Timing- ok for me looking at the time always made me nervous and i ended up hurrying in between adn ending up wid extra time at last. What u can do is hide the time and look at it ate intervals of 10 or 15 questions. but u should know what time is ur goal for that question. dont end up calculating time during exam as i did
2) During final exams u could eat energy bars and thoda sa fruit juice(both sugarless) in between. i took 3-4 gensing pills. u may skip the gensing pills but do take energy bars. after each section. U could also practice some breathing techniques to relax ur self in between sections. Dont eat too much sugar.it is bad for concentration
Attaching AWA and some stress management techniques.

Although the only plus point was the LOR which was very well written.
