Do not start any new topic or do not refer to any new book – Though the saying goes as, the more the merrier, but it may not be the best approach in this case. With hardly a day left, it is suggested to not start any new topic or do not refer to any new book for preparation. Anyway, by this time, aspirants must have referred to all top books and possible resources available. If you expose yourself to any new topic or textbook, you will lose your valuable time which could have been used in other better ways.
