My advice would be to take a step back, relax and restore confidence in yourself. If you let the test question shake your confidence to the point that you question your own abilities, then you are already defeated. If you don't believe in yourself, then no one else will.

Once you put that to bed, take your OG back out and do every question in the book and go back and re-work any problems that you answered incorrectly or could not answer in less than 2 minutes. The trick here is a dirty little secret called "hard work." Most people will go back and check their answers, but fewer will actually go back and work through the logic or arithmetic required to arrive at the correct answer. MAKE SURE YOU DO THAT! If you can answer 90 to 95% of questions in the OG correctly, I am confident you will be able to score over 600 on the real thing.

Since you have a couple weeks left, I would focus my efforts on the OG. Finish it before your test. If you are not satisfied with your score, continue working in the OG and supplementary materials like the Manhattan books for another month and then go re-take your test and slay that thing!
