Yeah, as long as you are just getting responses from Experts who work for Prep Companies you will get biased responses about what Verbal materials would best fit your situation.
It would be good if you got some responses from other people who are in a similar situation as you. I would definitely recommend that you start your study with some foundational work before you get into Verbal Strategies. We've got a nice Verbal Foundations book you should check out (http://www.manhattangmat.com/storeitems ... ItemID=596
Put together a plan that includes Foundational work, Strategy Work, and OG work (with solid review) and you will see your Verbal Score improve significantly.
