Hey ..............

Very Senior to me....In both Age and GMAT ex wise.
But Pls think the below advise as mine and it has really enhanced my performance.........
For SC I would say blindly hit the dart on E- GMAT's board ..............take their SC course its just 69$ you will feel the differnce. I By your Maths Score i feel you and me are in the same boat............
Try Advanced Quant strategies of Manhattan.....it will help to improve your Score atleast by 3 to 4 points....Also I would suggest Manhattan Number Properties and Word Problems of Manhattan.
For RC read daily Newspaper editorial or online version of any International daily. Than follow Manhattan RC guide.

Last but not the least take up the membership of Grockit. com its just for 700 ruppee. The site has tons of question to practice and it is timed so will help you to overcome your time constraint.

Verbal:

OGs are great for practice but you do need to get your basics right first (yes, there are basics in verbal too). Unfortunately, OGs do not give you the theory you require. They do not discuss strategies of attacking particular question types. Check out some GMAT specific study material of test prep companies. I cannot comment on the verbal books of other companies but I know the Veritas books.
Veritas RC book - Discusses in detail the various question types, what to focus on, how you are expected to deal with various question types and the strategies you can use. Has lots of practice passages - has some of the hardest passages I have seen.
Veritas CR book - Discusses basic question types e.g. strengthen/weaken/conclusion and the advanced ones e.g. assumption/logically complete etc. Talks about the focus points for every question type and the pitfalls. In my opinion, it makes CR very mathematical. It's very hard to get questions wrong once you understand the logic properly.
Veritas SC book - The focus is on the errors that appear most frequently - modifier, subject verb, parallelism, pronouns, tenses etc but first and foremost, it deals with the problem of 'accurate meaning'. The entire GMAT is reasoning based and hence, the SC section is being made reasoning based too. The focus is on logical construction and correct meaning - things people tend to ignore often.

Quant Timing - There is more than enough time. If you use the traditional approaches, you could feel that there isn't. A Q44 means your fundamentals are fine. Focus on alternative methods of solving the questions. Check out my blog where I discuss the more 'conceptual' approaches.

Quant DS - 50% of the Quant questions are DS. You need to be comfortable with the format. It is a little more time consuming so don't worry about that. Ensure that you fully understand the concept of 'sufficiency'. We have a separate book for DS which has exercises discussing the strategies that can be used to work on DS questions.

It is never easy to jump 80-100 points especially not after 600. But there is nothing that hard work cannot achieve so let's hope for the best.
