One of the schools says:

Q1: Leadership essay, describe where u proved urself as leader: (200 words)

Q2: Professional and Personal accomplishment (200 words each)

Should I follow the format (SAR) (A good one though) specified in book even though it says 200 words?

Yes, SAR remains a terrific option for these essays, despite the word limit. You will just have to be incredibly brief for each section Nontheless, you would be best able to answer the question by following the format.

Yeah, definitely still use SAR. The word limit makes it feel tough to do, but keep in mind that your reader will still need to understand the situation, what you did about it, and what happened as a result. When word limits are tight and people have to trim words, I tend to recommend that people trim down the situation more than the others. Give just enough detail so that they understand why this situation was important/interesting, but no more than that. (I know, easier said than done!)
