I think nothing is impossible... but from 16 to 40 is a biiiiiiiiig step.

And then practice. I used Manhattan GMAT Strategy Guides: especially the SC Guide helped me a lot!!!

Do you have any information about how you did on each part (SC, CR, RC)?

I do not have the OG Verbal Book, but I guess it might be helpful and I wish I had it at home... but it is too late for me anyway
I hope to reach V40 tomorrow on my GMAT

Hey even I gave my exam last week and scored a poor V23 so here are few points from my side:
Usually GMAT Verbal is a bit tougher than what u see in OG13 and Manhattan books so make sure that u understand Grammatical points and errors clearly because this only will help u solve SC questions
U can Use SC Grail and MGMAT Mixture to get good accuracy in SC and if you need more basic grammar rules then checkout other books as well.Practice good amount of 700 level questions as well with OG questions.
For CR as Rock750 said "PowerScore Critical Reasonning Bible" this is the best.
Last but not the least RC ,practice variety of reading from tough n moderate sources and u can even try new york times.
Plus get the RC99 book and solve all the 99 questions to be prepared for variety of questions .
That's all I can say about Verbal Prep in a month or two.
By the way I am aiming for 40+ in my 2nd attempt in March.
