A young man eager to become a master swordsman journeyed to the home of the greatest teacher of swordsmanship in the kingdom. He asked the teacher, “How quickly can you teach me to be a master swordsman?” The old teacher replied, “It will take ten years.” Unsatisfied, the young man asked, “What if I am willing to work night and day, every day of the year?” the teacher replied, “In that case, it will take twenty years.”

i would suggest you to have patience , work with OG 10 / 11 / 12,take a diagnostics test.
Look out for weak areas practice harder to improve them.

unfortunately , for GMAT there is no ONE VOLUME source.
OG is not sufficient.

Yes, Powerscore is a mighty resource. These books are especially useful if you have some really hard problem with some part of Verbal section (CR, RC, even SC). In the past, couple of their LSAT books were very popular, especially CR Bible. I tried to learn from this book, but it was sometimes unnecessarily thorough and detailed. Of course, it is not unnecessarily detailed if someone has issues with CR, so their books are really useful tool for building fundamentals in Verbal.

Recently, they have GMAT books of equal quality, but it seems that LSAT resources are just fine. However, since these books are excellent for fundamentals building, I'm not sure how useful they are for some Verbal high-scorers. Specifically, I don't beleive it would be much useful if you want to improve from 42 to 46 Verbal.
