You know what, start off with First Aid(buy the latest edition) and read the first few chapters; this will help orient yourself to the exam. Go through the Cases on your own the first time and watch the CSE videos, I think they'll help you with physical examination and counseling a great deal(It's wise that you go through FA twice). It's important that you time yourself in the data gathering, physical exam and the patient notes. My exam is in 3 weeks, I've been able to manage my time in both data gathering and the PE but I'm having a hard time finishing the patient on time. Keep practicing, look for a skype partner or any kind of partner that can help you out with the prep. Good luck to you.

I also found this link to be useful. It really outlines the importance of being systematic during the exam and following a particular guideline for writing your PN, doing the PE and taking a history.
