apologies if there are spelling mistakes in this post, I haven't slept properly for the last 5 days and I am still sleep deprived.

I have just completed all the manhattan books (I had to force feed 3 books in 5 days - word problems, number properties and geometry)
I have only completed all the manhattan drills once - I would say 80% of incorrect answers - I understood the concept but it's a matter of recalling it in my head

what is the best course of action at this stage?

I have done no mock test ever!

I have the following material:

-manhattan 6th edition full set of guides + foundation
-Veritasprep 2017 - all books
-Kaplan premier with 6 practice tests
-kaplan verbal workbook
-kaplan math workbook
-kaplan gmat 800

-OG Paper Tests - Code 14, 25, 28, 31, 37, 42, 48, 52, 55
-OG 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 Review
-OG Quant Review - 2017, 2018
-OG Verbal Review - 2nd edition, 10th, 2018

-Bunuel Signature collection all in one

to give you a bit of background, I am a native speaker, born and raised in the UK,

I have had an undesirable family matter that has caused me a great amount of distress and I am trying to push through, I couldn't have foreshadowed this situation thus I am behind on my actual practice/drills.

With only 5 days remaining, how best shall I proceed?

My initial thoughts were to revise all the manhattan drills at end of each chapter - fdp, algebra, number properties, word problems and geometry
verbal - I was going to just use OG paper test codes as per above as I can print these all off and focus on verbal

I have never touched the kaplan material (it seemed like it's questions were very ambiguous at times) nor touched the veritas books (I know, it's not great right!)

so considering what I have, what do you guys think would be the best course of action to maximize 4 days to drill, drill and more drills. I have around 15 hours per day = 75 hours in total before actual exam.

I would really appreciate as much advice as possible. thank you.

My dear friend, there are many of us who can relate the anxiety and panic attacks
of an exam. That said, I would strongly urge you to postpone your Gmat date if possible.
There are couple of reasons for the same:
1. I believe you have not tasted real waters by giving actual exam. You can get two free mocks
from http://www.mba.com and then post your score here for further suggestions.
2. I believe across the forums, veritas material is better recognized than kaplan. If you can
not understand Kaplan material, just keep those aside. Your target is to achieve best score, from where
you get is immaterial. I would also rate manhattan books over veritas since they are more comprehensive.
3. Bunuel signature collection is awesome but again it is tricky and on tougher side. Attempt them after you are
completely done with theory in quant material.

For the material at your disposal, follow these in chronological order (after giving first free mock):

-manhattan 6th edition full set of guides + foundation

-Bunuel Signature collection all in one

-OG Paper Tests - Code 14, 25, 28, 31, 37, 42, 48, 52, 55
-OG 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 Review
-OG Quant Review - 2017, 2018
-OG Verbal Review - 2nd edition, 10th, 2018

Second free gmat prep mock.

Lastly I would very strongly encourage you to meet local physician (pref. a family doc) since your sleep levels are way too less
and to be practical such type of restlessness may counter your prep and even your actual exam.

Don't look to put in 15 hours every day till your exam.

As adkikani suggests, you should get some rest and take a GMATPrep test. A test just a few days before the exam doesn't normally help much, but in your case you don't seem to be very familiar with the test (format, timing...), and just getting some exposure to that could improve your performance on test day. I wouldn't advise you to take the GMAT if you are not in good health, but otherwise, just take it without putting any additional pressure on yourself to get a particular score.
