While I personally think that Manhattan best replicates the type and rigor of quant questions, I didn't notice much of a difference between any sources on the verbal side. That being said, I only practiced verbal questions while taking practice tests and only on Manhattan, GMATPrep, and the OG diagnostic. I found Manhattan to be quite helpful on the CR side just on the high-level common mistakes / ways to think about how the test writers may be trying to mislead you. I didn't study nuanced SC rules at all, and just found focusing on meaning, reason, and thinking like the test writer went a long way (with a little bit of luck surely for a 51).

Given what you said about practice tests I think it's worth just taking it one more time to see how you do. Since it sounds like you've done a lot of prep already & were scoring higher for quant on those, I wouldn't worry about doing additional prep at this point, so the time would just be for the test itself. A 750 is a totally solid score for the schools you are targeting and if you can't get your quant score up it's not the end of the world. Schools will see the highest quant score on the 710 total & take that into consideration, and you've clearly got a job where quant is critical. Having some LORs that vouch for the fact that your quant skill are above average compared to your peers will help as well. But since you are shooting for schools that are the best in the world & since you were testing higher on practice tests my advice is to just give it one more go & see what happens. Worst case if your score goes down they'll just consider your highest score anything & you won't really have lost anything except the time investing in taking the test again.

Manythanks. It is very useful n interesting. So I will use Manhattan practice questions for CR with ur recommended way of thinking :)) I finished OG15 and waiting for OG19. I already found that lesson videos of egmat are very interesting and seem useful [for instance, they explain pre-think method for CR].
Again manythanks anonthrowaway5263

Well, took it again thinking the downside was much smaller than the upside, and somehow pulled off a 49Q, with a bit of a mean reversion of 47V, for a 760 total. Not sure how many schools will superscore my 51V from last test with the 49Q from this test, but that'd just be icing on the cake.
