Congrats for the result and force of will!

Up to now, I've been an anonymous reader of the best posts, but I got really excited while reading yours.
If u don't mind, I'd kindly ask for a help with my study plan.

I've done some gmatclub math tests but I kinda stuck in math (always 60-65%) and haven't been able to surpass that. I've actually decided to take a coulpe of days to remake all the exercises I've got wrong (using my error log, which include exercises in Math OG) trying to find common mistakes so I can review the basic concepts. Do u think it should work out, or would you suggest another strategy?

As per Verbal, I'm not a native speaker so I'm going mad with it. Read the 1st part of the MGMAT SC, but (against the whole world) didn't think it helped out much as I'm still not confident with the basic concepts. I felt a huge gap in difficulty level when leaving from the MGMAT theory to the correspondent exercises in the OG SC. I was making so many mistakes that I decided to put it (SC) away for a while and bought another book (Verbal Bible) and start from zero. Not to mention all the magazines, such as Economist, that I've tried to read. What, in your opinion, should I do to boost my performance?

Thanks for your patience reading my big post and wish it can help out others with the same problem.
