You need to practice in timed environment. When you work on OG 12, or other questions, you need to time yourself and always feel the pressure of the clock.
Even with gmat club forums - don't sit leisurely for 5 minutes solving a question, but rather limit yourself to 2 minutes. Best if you can take full length tests (with AWA) - that will set you straight.

Any question that you miss - save it and print it out for your file to review later. If you find that you can't solve one of the question multiple times, go back and refresh your knowledge on the subject.

550 is about average score - you should be able to get there in a few weeks after taking full-length tests (assuming your verbal is OK)

Since you have only 1 month review and know that math is a big weakness, i'd buy the manhattan math review books and practice nothing but math a couple of hours everyday for the entire month.

IMO, just practicing problems out of the official guide doesn't help as much because the explanations in the book are really poor.

like neomax85 said, practicing under timed conditions is really key to doing well on the test.

Good luck!
