My best advice for the math section is to download some flash cards (Link Below to some decent ones) and just make sure you memorize all the specific rules with respect to geometry. There are lots of specific rules that they like to target.
Also do a little research into how the test works and make sure you spend extra time ensuring you get the questions at the beginning of each section correct because they have more value.
I studied for 2 weeks for and scored a 660/6.0 but I didn't do great on the quantitative section (like 68th percentile) and it dragged my score down.
The math is simple and just requires a little work, I only wrote the GMAT as a shot in the dark when I didn't get into a MSc program I wanted to take which explains the lack of preparation but my score was sufficient to get into a good (Canadian) school.
Nobody cares about the essay section but there is a formula to a perfect 6.0 essay which is a pretty simple layout. Its been 3 years and I forget exactly what it is but just do a little research and read some perfect essays and you should be able to put one together on any topic.
Get some kaplan practise tests, they are much more difficult than the real thing.
That's about all I can recall, good luck.
