Wow, 6 hrs a day for that long.. thats a lot of work ! you have worked really hard...
I think the best thing to do in your situation is to start from the basics and refresh your concepts. Sure, keep practising every day, but also work on learning these concepts.
Mortals like me will NEVER be able to solve 100% of the problems 100% of the time. I learnt that its ok if i cant solve solve some problems. You should treat those problems as opportunities for learning something more. Everything problem that you do, see if you learnt something. Summarize what you learnt at the end of every prep day. wouldnt that be a helpful thing to have two days before the test? Do you analyze your errors. if not, start doing that rightaway.
If you think that you will solve every problem you come across, thats a really tough goal to have. Some problems need careful reading ,analysis and only then the problem starts falling apart. You are required to use limited number of tools to solve unlimited number of problems(god bless akamai). And with all these limitations, we may not always be 'ready' to solve a problem. Sometimes we are not concentrating well enough or sometimes we just didnt read the problem well or sometimes we make a simple mistake... the key is to learn from them and to minimize your errors.
Practise tests are no way related to your performance. Either you are trained or not ! if you have taken your time to understand the concepts and if you have tested yourself regularly under timed conditions, you will have trained well. Go back and look at your work in your prep. analyze your mistakes and see if there is room for improvement.
In SC, study Grammar and learn all idioms and basic rules. In RC and CR, go over the strategies that you have used till now. Develop a strategy and implement it well on test day
For Math, eliminate as many silly mistakes as you can. Concentrate harder on the easier problems because getting them wrong will mean you wont even get close to a good score. As for the tough problems, dont freak out if you dont know how to solve one. doing harder problems wrong does affect your score , but the worst thing you can do is to do consecutive problems wrong.
Dont let practise tests tell you how you are doing. you get a 800 or a 400 on the practise test. both scores mean the same to me because you still have to go out there and perform when it really matters.
If you need more help,please let me know.

I have been studying extremely rigorously for 2.5 weeks (6 hours/day). I am actually doing worse on my practice exams. The amazing thing is, before I started studying I could have at least a vague idea of what I was doing on the exams, but after completing the PR book, and the Kap Math workbook, I look at problems on the exam and have NO IDEA how to do them!
I am guessing my head off, am totally discouraged, and am getting worse scores (although, interestingly, only a couple points worse: 32, 34 instead of 35).
HELP, and quickly!! Please! Thanks, Stephanie
