There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
While it is very clear that my weakness is in verbal, in two practice tests my verbal score was really bad. I am not sure what I need to do to make sure my verbal score does not dip too low. I have real GMAT scheduled in two weeks. Please help.

Yes. Both the times when my verbal score was bad, the main reason was RC followed by CR. I did make mistakes in SC as well but they were not significant. Also time management played a big role. Second time when my verbal score was 28, I had only about 15 minutes to answer last 12 questions, forcing me to guess many questions.
With CR, I am facing two issues. When I read fast, I tend not to understand the situation clearly. And when I read slowly and try to understand clearly, I lose the focus and end up spending unnecessary time.
I studied OG12, Verbal review, Veritas , MGMAT, Kaplan On Demand for both CR and RC. When I solved CR and RC questions in Veritas and Kaplan on Demand, I did almost 85% CR and 75% RC correctly. Also Kaplan on Demand was timed as 2 minutes per question. I firmly believe that I have it in me to repeat this performance but somehow I have not been able to do so consistently. I appreciate any help you may provide.
