Powerscore's CR Bible is VERY good. Look into it!
Also, look at some LSAT Logical reasoning questions and RC questions with the Kaplan explanations. Those are very thorough and will help your score.

Let me chime in here--most of these suggestions are very good. However, be careful with bigmonkey's suggestion of LSAT material. Assumption, strengthen, and weaken questions from the LSAT are all very similar to those on the GMAT, but there are several LSAT questions types, most notably parallel reasoning, that show up rarely if at all on the GMAT. Make sure you understand the GMAT material (Kaplan's resources are a great way to do so) before you move on to LSAT stuff to avoid confusion!

Kaplan :-)

For the Quant, our Advanced and Target 800 material will help you ace that section. Our basic premier book and verbal strategies book will help shore up your verbal score. And consider signing up for one of our online options; access to our quiz-banks and CATs will go a long way.
