I was going to try to give you lots of advice, but I boiled it down to practice, practice, practice. At a minimum try to spend 45 minutes once or twice a day working a section timed, scoring it, and reviewing what you missed. Work the earlier test and move to the later ones, they'll be closer to what you'll see in October. Set a pace and learn to track it. For example, LR gives you roughly 80 seconds per question. I learned to recognize when I was falling behind pace and stop spending time on hard questions - narrow the choices, take your best guess and move on. Don't skip questions in the LR, it wastes time and you won't be able to go back, reread it and put more thought into it than you did the first time. The pencil tracking in RC helps a lot with focus and keeping you place. Occasionally in LG, later questions will give you a clue to earlier ones, so you may try skipping a question in a scenario, but once you leave the group, don't go back.
Don't worry if you choke on a practice exam - my practice scores spanned 12 points and I ended up higher on the actual than any of my practice.
Sorry, I did end up giving lots of advice - feel free to ignore any of it and good luck.
