As for timing, it depends on how you pace yourself. Can you read outlines, do 1000 MBE problems and read the Barbri essay answers within a month?
Before June 3, I'd get some outlines and read those and start doing MBE practice problems before then. I only read outlines and did MBE practice problems until 2 weeks before the exam; starting two weeks before the exam, I stopped MBE prep and then just read essay exam questions and answers. I didn't write out any essays since I thought that took way too much time, and I can type so what the fuck is the point of writing it out. (I mean seriously - how the fuck does typing it out help me?)
I passed NY bar exam first time with an MBE score of 165 or something like that (which is 95th percentile or so), and that's 50% of the NY bar exam so if you do well on the MBE you have some cushion. I didn't study for the MPT or the NY specific multiple choice questions, but I would read a few sample MPT questions/answers. The MPT is going to be out of left field though, so prepare to just bullshit your way through the MPT. The NY specific multiple choice questions are just too hard - so I didn't bother studying for them.

If you're the average July test-taker I don't think a few days matter - you can make it up on the weekends as they're often light, especially the first half. But obviously the sooner the better. It's tough to estimate your own abilities on a knowledge test that is different from any test you've taken before, but it will help. I personally think you'll be fine.
