Clearly, you are good enough in Quant to have a 700+ score, and your weakness is in Verbal.
I think you should focus almost exclusively on that. Try first to refresh your grammar knowledge:
-Ultimate Gmat grammar review from GMAT Club is a good one, give it a try
- Aristotle SC is not bad either, and a good complement to MGMAT SC
- you can also have a loot at other MGMAT guides, even if I had not used them

For you to imporve, you have to read as much as you can in English, so that you get familiar with some vocabulary, constructions and idioms. Try the FT, or the economist.

Let me know if this helps

btw: it is more easy to get from 28 to 35 in verbal, than from 35 to 40, so just keep on the hard work!!

As drisss pointed out, it is obvious where your problem lies. I am assuming you are facing difficulties in all 3 Verbal question formats. Here is some advice I gave for Verbal in another thread.

For SC, make sure you work through all OG questions at least a couple of times. Do 20 questions in a sitting (give yourself 35 minutes) and then analyze them. Go through the explanation of each and every question, the ones you got correct too (so that you can knowingly duplicate it in other questions). If the OG explanations are vague (which they do tend to be), rephrase the concept in your own words. Taking notes of important points is highly recommended (will be useful later). Make an error log. It is a must for SC.

Every CR question in GMAT will be very logical with no ambiguity. The higher questions will need you to consider implications of what is said; the lower level questions will give you direct consequences. The idea is to understand what to focus on in each question type. Let's say if it is a weaken question, we focus on our conclusion. So first figure out the conclusion of the argument. Then look for an option that specifically weakens the conclusion, not some premise given in the argument. For mimic questions, define the logic of the argument using symbols. e.g. A does B. B is also done by C. So A and C are brothers. Then look for same structure in the options. In Inference questions, there is no conclusion in the stimulus. You have to give the conclusion. Remember that the correct option will never provide new information. It will only rephrase information given in the argument so on and so forth. See what strategies work best for you.

Improving RC is mostly about practice. Though, it is a good idea to take short notes of each paragraph. Will help you retain focus (mind tends to wander while reading a long passage) and universal questions can be easily handled. Just 2-3 words per passage e.g.
1. Intro fem. reforms before 1885
2. Ms. X first person - opposed
Also, read some good books to develop an instinct for proper idioms and correct grammatical structure in English.
