I had given my first GMAT exam and scored 680 (50:Quant ;30:verbal), 4.5 in AWA, 5 in IR
I wish to improve the score to 750+. I am from Engineering backdrop so i feel(just my personal feeling nothing more) i am pretty good at quant so am aiming to push that 50 to 55+. Coming to the verbal part I seriously am absolutely clueless as to how to improve that score, given the fact that the lame system of GMAC doesn't even show where you went wrong or which section you are lagging behind. My next attempt is an month away,now i am becoming frantic. Any suggestions or advice or even opinions are welcome
I would be grateful for any advice offered!!

Looks like you have a strong imbalance - definitely need to pull up that verbal score.
Practice can help ( http://www.gmatpill.com/gmat-practice-test/) - but can only get you so far.

Examine your thought process and see how you can speed up / improve your accuracy. You may want to check out some of the videos for OG questions here: http://www.gmatpill.com/official-guide-gmat

Make sure you are familiar with the "cut the fluff" technique for SC - so you can quickly breeze through SC questions and free up more time for CR and RC.
