my performance score card so far is as follows
On an average over low,medium and tough questions :
Problem solving - i am scoring 80 % right
DS - i am scoring 60% right
SC - i am scoring 75 % right
RC - i am scoring 50% right
CR - i am scoring 50% right

How do I ramp up DS,RC and CR
these verbals are crap seriously.
difficult to comprehend in the limited time possible and hard to remember all the rules.
(so many reasons - poor reading speed + poor critical thinking + poor eyesight + computer strain + fatigue )

I have 45days more to work hard :(

please kindly advise what should I do more now and how much time should i put in everyday ( 6hrs ) - i really need to reach 700 (exactly)

With the above i am in the region of 650-680.

thank you in advance

Are you keeping an error log?

Remember, the GMAT was designed to stratify people. Simply reading explanations and doing problems does not always work. This is where an error log is key. The error log helps you identify why you gravitate or are unable to work out a problem. After figuring out the "WHY" aspect of answering problems incorrectly, you should be able to come up with a game plan to overcome this (skipping steps in math, using wrong geometry rules, using pronouns incorrectly, assuming on modifiers, etc.)

45 days should be enough time. Go back to your most recent practice test and use the results as the basis for your error log. Also, check the stickies in the respective subforums for guides on getting through the problem type (example: Whiplash SC guide scguide-106724.html).

Best of luck,

what prep materials have you used??
MGMAT set of 8 guides have data sufficiency guides for tough DS question which I find really useful,
The RC and CR guides from the set are also pretty good. Or you can try Powerscore CR as an alternative.

try flashcard for all the things to remember. go through it once everyday or two.

I used eyeQ to improve my reading skills, really easy to use and effective but no 1000wpm level.. went from 300+wpm to consistent 600+wpm for me.

Please give KUDOS if you find that my post adds value! Thank you!! :)
