Hi Experts,

I am planning to give my first try for GMAT.
I have still not registered for the exam but plan to register soon for April.
As a part of preparation I have followed the below approach

1) Worked on problems of OG12 complete
2) Worked on problems of OG10 for Verbal.
3) Gave practice test on Grockit

I gave the GMAT club free test as well and scored Q(51) and V(36).( in verbal got 2 wrong in RC , 3 wrong in SC and 6 wrong in CR)
I am quite confident of my Quant but in verbal lack confidence.

Before giving the final GMAT exam I plan to take full length test of GMAT Prep and other free full length tests available

Can you please suggest me what should be my approach till the final exam and what/how should I practice more.
Any tips would be helpful as well...

Here is my sincere advice: Get the Veritas CR book. With a Q51, there is no way you should be making 6 CR errors. Go through the book (you can easily wrap it up in 3-4 days depending on the time you give it). Thereafter, I will be very surprised if you make more than 1-2 mistakes in CR. The Veritas CR book briefs you on all the different question types, what the author wants from you and what you should focus on. It gives you total clarity.
As for SC and RC, take some more tests to figure out your consistency.
