By the way what are your thoughts on using K.F Riley's Mathematical Method's and solutions manual in conjunction with Leduc's Cracking GRE book? are there any other books that you know stress quick problem solving strategies while still rehashing a bit of theory?
To be fair to him, I am enrolled in some of his subjectmath.com modules and they do seem legitimate. I just hate his promotional scheming. I'm not aware of Riley's book, but it seems similar to Mary Boas' book, Mathematical Methods in the Physical Sciences, which is great.
I can't think of any prep book or review book that does everything you need for this test. The answer given here at Math Stack Exchange seems to be very popular, although it would be extremely time consuming:

REA books or Princeton review are not so useful.
Make sure that you do each and every problem from Stewart Calculus atleast twice, since its timed test, pace is also important factor.
Do Dummit upto field extensions, if you have time do Artin's Algebra too.
Rudin Real Analysis, Munkres Topology, Insel Linear Algebra are also must.
I suggest to go for Gamlin Complex Analysis, Brown's Complex Analysis is also sufficient but if you are good at Complex Analysis you can save time in the exam by simplifying integral using methods from Complex Analysis. (Do till Residues)
For the misc topics pick any Discrete Maths book and read them a day or two that's more than enough.
Learn some basic number theory from any introductory book.
Do all the 4 available practice tests, you should be able to finish of the tests little earlier because actual test will be harder than those practice tests.
