Try the princeton review. It helped me a lot to understand the GMAT structure. Don't try to learn perfect english, learn only to take the test.

I researched the same topic a few months ago and landed on the following:
- Manhattan Guide for SC rocks. Supplemented it with idioms downloads from this site.
- Powerscore CR bible rocks. I had the MGMAT guide for CR as well, so between the two, I seem to be getting good practice.

Indeed, the verbal section is critical to your overall score.

Perhaps the most difficult section to improve in terms of time will probably be RC for most people. SC is definitely beatable. If you're short on time, you definitely want to maximize your effectiveness and master only as much as you need to know for the exam. This means not memorizing dozens of grammar rules, but rather coming up with an efficient thought process so you can study smart and approach exam questions already knowing where the booby traps are.
