There have been a lot of good threads on this topic. Have a look at this thread which has a lot of helpful suggestions. There was another thread as well which discussed success strategies from not only the electrical discipline but other disciplines as well. You can find it here. Some good tips there, good luck!
I took the Power exam in October and failed....My weakest areas are Measurement & Instrumentation, Circuit Analysis: Devices & Power Electronic Circuits, Rotating Machines & Electromagnetic Devices: Electromagnetic Devices, and Transmission & Distribution: Protection. Any one have any advice/tips to help me work on these topics?

After two rounds, you should be able to get through the NCEES 8-hour exam in about 3 hours. You should be able to do all 6-minute problems in 2-3 each. Study about 250 hours, and do about 150 hours of preparation.
Study, study and study. Practice problems, practice problems and practice problems. Work a problem like you are in the exam, with your calculator and references that you would take to the exam.
I took 20 days off of work to study. I was not planning to take it a second time - I had a baby on the way. I did about 500 hours of study and preparation and passed Power on the first try.
