Gurus:
I have been preparing for GMAT for last 30 days. I have taken 5 GMATPrep (downloaded one last year in July and the other this year in February) CATs so far. My scores:

After 0 day: 620 (Q:44; V:29 - SC 10 incorrect, C 2 incorrect, CR 7 incorrect)
After 7 days: 630 (Q:45; V:30 - SC 9 incorrect, C 2 incorrect, CR 7 incorrect)
After 14 days: 650 (Q:47; V:31 - SC 8 incorrect, C 2 incorrect, CR 6 incorrect)
After 21 days: 690 (Q:49; V:35 - SC 6 incorrect, C 0 incorrect, CR 4 incorrect)
After 28 days: 690 (Q:50; V:33 - SC 6 incorrect, C 1 incorrect, CR 5 incorrect)

I have taken two GMAT Focus so far: GMAT Focus 1: 46 - 50 (80% interval) - 8th March
GMAT Focus 2: 47 - 51 (80% interval) - 19th March

Strong points: Quant and comprehension
Weak points: SC (consistently getting 6-7 incorrect, has shown a decrease of about 3-4 points in a month) and CR (consistently getting 4-5 incorrect, has shown a decrease of about 2-3 points in a month)

Bad Habit: Not taking notes in CR

I would really appreciate any last minute tips to improve my score by 30-40 points in next 9 days.

With 9 days to go, I would:
- not start using 'new' reading material but rather concentrate on those you already used
- read again the MGMAT SC strategy guide (assuming you used it before)
- review your error log - gmat-error-log-86232-220.html
the-error-log-129501.html
- do timed practice test (don't skip AWA!)

Good luck!
