Speaking
As with Writing, give yourself mock tasks and run through them in your head.

Online videos are always worth a look, but should be watched critically. Give yourself a focus. How well do they link? What expressions do they use to interact? Are they varying their vocab or repeating? What would you do differently?

Writing
Analyse previous or online questions for keywords and try some planning, without actually writing complete answers.
Use our Functions and Vocabulary prep method.
Make sure you have a set of linking expressions, and for Advanced and Proficiency that you've got enough at varying levels of formality.
