1. Solve at least 10-12 sample papers within the last month
It will help you improve your problem solving ability, speed and accuracy. You should try to solve at least 2 question papers every week within the stipulated time.
After finishing solving the paper and verifying your answers, make sure you note your final score, number of questions attempted and unattempted, number of questions correct and incorrect and time taken to solve the entire paper. This will help you gauge your performance over the weeks and highlight the areas where you should focus more to score well in the exam.

2. Revise the formulae and difficult problems
Pickup your coaching notes or school notes and revise all the formulae from each of the subjects and also go through all the difficult problems which really test your concepts.

You can download Mind-Maps to revise formulae quickly.

3. Say No to new topics
You should not take up new topics during the last month of the exam (unless it is very important and carry decent weightage). It will only make your preparation complex. It would be better to focus on what you have already studied and revise it regularly.

Make a small notebook and note down whatever you feel is important or not easy to understand. Every morning, have a glance at it, ponder over them. This will give you a good hold of those topics.

4. Take short breaks of 10-15 minutes between your preparation and revision.

5. Remember to focus on the basics, rather than tackling only the complicated problems. JEE tests your fundamental knowledge.

6. Take note of every silly mistake you are prone to commit. Left unattended, they prove fatal for a good rank in the final exam.

7. Get at least 8 hours of sleep everyday to stay mentally and physically fit.

8. Go out and take some fresh air or meet/speak to friends. However, avoid speaking about studies, exam and preparation during their break time.

Some general tips:
1) Avoid studying on the bed: You tend to be more lethargic on the bed.
2) Keep your phone few metres from you when studying.

Some More Tips by an IITian....
What topics to mainly focus on for JEE?

If at any point of time you are confused with what chapters to focus on in particular and what chapters you can take up with a little relaxation, I would personally suggest:

Physics ---> Electrostatics, Ray optics, Current Electricity and Applications of General Mechanics are MUST to come in any entrance exam. All these topics require a strong understanding of the Basic Concepts. Perhaps, topics like wave optics, projectile motion, Newtons law of Gravitation,etc have direct formula implementing questions. HCV is more than sufficient book for preparation.
Help Tips* ---> There will be many Question that can be solved by using the simple Dimensional elimination technique. Try to take help from the options, it helps save time.

Maths ----> Conics Section, Probability, Permutation and Combination, Co-ordinate geometry,Series and Progression, Integral Calculus and Trigonometry will form most of the part of the paper. For this Das Gupta is a very good book. However, topics such as Limits, Maxima and Minima, Matrix and Determinants, etc will comprise less of the questions.
A word of Caution - Arihant is NOT a good book for calculus, it has way to many mistakes.
Help Tips* --> Try and use the options in the questions, 20% of the questions can be solved in this manner.
For the Conics and Co-ordinate geometry use the approximate graph technique and then hunt for the closest option.

Chemistry ---> Organic Chemistry will form more than 50% of the paper..!! The name reactions are always asked (perkin, aldhol condensation, Carnizaro Rxn, Rimen-timar being the favorite of the examinar). Hence , these require more effort. Inorganic Chemistry constitutes the rest 30% and Physical chemistry the remaining.
Under Inorganic the Chapters such as s,p,d & f block are bound to come. Co-ordination compound is very popular among the examiners as well.
Under Physical Chemistry Chapters like Electro-chemistry, Buffer Solutions, Thermodynamics and Atomic Structure are most important.
Help Tips* --> Arihants objective organic chemistry is a very good book.
You will find a number of exceptional cases in Inorganic Chemistry, learn all of them. NCERT is best for Inorganic Chem.
Questions from Oswalds Dilution law have always come in direct application questions, Examiners are fond of connecting Buffer solutions to Emf. For such questions and rest of physical chem. RC Mukherge is the best book.
