Thank you for using the timer!

There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
I need to plan my study for coming 20 days. I have GMAT appointment on 17th April. I have completed below material. OG-12 ( twice), Verbal review (once) LSAT -10 sets (RC), and 2 sets (CR) Study material: Manhattan maths and SC, CR (Powerscore LSAT bible and some chapters from Manhattan)
My Latest scores:
GMAT prep( v1) Test1: 640 (V-26, Q-50) on 26th Feb Knewton Free Test: 650 (V-33, Q-46) on 18th March GMAT prep (V1) Test2: 720 (V-38, Q-50) on 25th March
Can someone please suggest me how should I plan my studies for rest of days to achieve at least 700 in GMAT? I am thinking to start practicing on 700-800 questions bank. Is it right to do at this time or shall I practice on some other material.
I'm also at the same stage of prep.. Doing the GMAT on 4/14 so I am in eat, drink, breathe, sleep, dream GMAT mode... (Although I have a full time job also)..
My recommendation is to do MGMAT tests and OG material (even though i see you have done the OG stuff twice.. May be worthwhile for you to get OG13 for the extra new questions (there is a post that details the exact number of new questions)
I am finding RC tough. Please find below the details description of Verbal scores in my last three mock tests GMAT prep1: (640, V26) RC 7/11, SC 11/15, CR 8/12 Knewton Free test:(650, V33) RC 4/13, SC 11/14, CR 10/14 GMAT prep2:(720, V38) RC 12/14, SC 11/16, CR 8/11 ( Given in complete official conditions- both essays and proper breaks)
When I practiced RC from OG, Verbal an even from some of the LSAT sets, my accuracy was more than 90%. But I don't know why I am unable to concentrate on RC in mock tests. In GMAT prep 2 I was determined that I will complete RC with good accuracy even if I had to run short of time for rest of the questions. But luckily I could finish verbal part, 2 minutes before the allotted time without hurrying up. I did not spent more than approx 25-26 minutes on RC(4 passages) though.
Please let me know if any more information needed on the same.
I use Manhattan time strategy for RC, short passage(3 questions)- 6-7 minutes, long passage(4 questions) 8-9 minutes. In normal practice my accuracy is 90% on an average with this timing. I did not get your point on SC, do I need to improve more on this front. If yes what material I can use to proceed on?
Thanks for your help.
