OG 13th edition and Official Verbal guide 2nd edition.
You can also find good practice questions in GMAT Club grammar book and once you cover the basics you can find many questions from different sources in this forum.

My friendly dimes : Once through with the basics :

1.Get a hold of OG 12 / 13 any edition is just fine
2.Verbal review 2nd edition
3.Cover MGMAT and do the topic wise questions listed from Og = eg Parallelism - Parallelism problems from OG / SV agreement - Sv probs from OG
4.The ones u are struggling to understand = Search in forums GMATCLUB / BTG /esp Ron purewal's posts, He is magical
5.Download Ron purewal's videos available @ gmatclub ( search with lunarpower his forum name ) / vimeo / youtube / manhattangmat site = they are awesome
6.Download Gmatprep docs ( from GMATCLUB under whiplash's name ) = all retired actual gmat SC questions consolidated in one place

Once through : Take timing into consideration

1.Do in blocks of 40 witha timer of 1.5 mins - mark the ones u get wrong & review in Forums ( best part, all questions have been answered by experts / forum whizs )
2.Redo the wrong ones after a break = whether this time u are able to recognize the pattern or not , since u have already reviewed those
3.Do in blocks of 40 = mixing 20 SC & 20 CR = this is to simulate actual test conditions, forcing you to think/ extract in time crunching situations
4. Exhaust all OG / verbal review / Gmatprep docs

Word of caution : before attempting Gmatprep docs, exhaust Gprep software multiple times or else u are got to get repeats leading to score inflation.

MGMAT SC + Aristotle SC Grail +OG 13 + OG Verbal are enough

In addition, you can look at Ron Purewal's explanations for difficult SC topics.

Hi GMATers

From my experience there are few sources that can mimic the GMAT style of questions so if it's questions you're after you should look only look at GMAC stuff (OG, GMATPrep, GMAT paper tests etc).

However if you want to know the theory, then many people have recommended MGMAT SC guide. I agree to an extend, it's pretty good but if you can I would start on Powerprep SC Bible. It's just a bit simpler and better laid out. The MGMAT SC guide is cerntainly more comprehensive but I struggled a bit with the amount of technical language the first time through.

Hope that helps

B.
