The plan itself seems good, but I'd be concerned about that timeline. Thats little more than basically 20 days to move 140 points. Then again, that could be approximately 160 hours of study, and that might juts be sufficient. I have to ask though, why the tight deadline?

The other thing I dont see is a plan to actually do the OG guide. I would suggest you incorporate that into your plan - and if anything, itll probably be discouraging. Simply taking a sample test every day isn't going to do it. Given your tight timline, I'd recommend that you take maybe 1 test a week, but otherwise focus on the OG guide. I'd forget whatever you downloaded from that website, stick to the OG.

I think your materials are solid - maybe add in mgmat SC book if you need help with SC.
