That's not too difficult to do. The biggest thing is to make sure that you don't drag your score down through poor time management or an overwhelming stress response. Make sure that you continue to take practice tests (about 1 a week at this point), and treat these tests exactly
like the real thing. Do the essay and IR section, time your breaks strictly, don't pause, etc.
In addition, I'd recommend finding a few places to make improvements. For instance, if some element of the test is new and confusing to you--say, Data Sufficiency or Critical Reasoning--spend some time reading up on that particular element. If there are math rules you've forgotten (factoring quadratics, geometry formulas, etc.), do a little memorizing. Many people find that they can get a nice improvement by learning to plug in numbers on math problems in lieu of algebra, but only do this if you really have time to practice this technique. Anything new like that is likely to bring your score down
for a while before it brings it up. On this short time frame, you really don't want to adopt any techniques that require you to fundamentally change your habits.
Of course, it helps to work through the Official Guide and do some representative problems, but make sure you're timing yourself strictly and then reviewing thoroughly for understanding.
