First of all, congratulations on the strong quant performance. To reach your goal, you need to take a very serious approach to verbal preparation, which means that at a minimum you'll need to get study materials to help you along. I recommend our Verbal Essentials package (http://www.manhattangmat.com/storeitems ... ItemID=593
) because it contains all the reference material you need to prep for verbal. You need to take a "bottoms-up" approach to your preparation, meaning that you need to start with basic, foundational concepts if you want to get really comfortable with GMAT verbal questions. You'll get those basic concepts from the Foundations of Verbal book, then you can increase your knowledge base with the verbal strategy guides.
Your OG prep should also reflect this "bottoms-up" focus. Don't try to answer all the hard questions because you'll never see them until you have mastered the lower-level questions (starting at the beginning of the OG).
Is timing a problem for you? How do you feel about Reading Comprehension?
As you take a very serious look at Verbal, don't forget to continue practicing Quant. You probably still have room to grow and you definitely don't want to get rusty.
