Struggling with sentence correction - one week till test! [#permalink]

My practice test scores are:

MGMAT1 47Q (didn't do verbal)
MGMAT2 48Q (didn't do verbal)
MGMAT3 49Q 35V 690 total
MGMAT4 49Q 40V 730 total
GMATPREP1 50Q 39V 730 total
GMATPREP2 50Q 41V 750 total

In the first GMAT prep exam I missed 4 SC, 2 CR and 2 RC. Second GMAT prep exam I missed 5 SC, 2 CR and 0 RC. Half the CR in both exams I missed because I read a word incorrectly.

I'm spending more time per question on sentence correction than the other two question types. I haven't studied CR or RC at all, just practice questions. I've gone through the SC OG, MGMAT SC twice and Aristotle twice and Aristotles new 100 question bank (missed ~7 of first 50 and then only 1 miss in last 50).

I'm not sure what to do.. With only a week left and with only having time on weekends to do practice tests, how much time should I put into SC and what should I practice? Note that I still haven't taken the last two MGMAT exams and any additional math prep might move me closer to a 51 or at least consolidate the 50..

I can spend 2-3 hours a night during the week and then I'll have the entire weekend.. Test is on the thirteenth and the goal is to get the maximum score possible (several peers have scored in 750-770 range and I'd like to beat them). Please advise.

Practice some advanced Quant questions for 30 - 45 mins every night. (You can check out the 700+ level Quant questions on GMAT Club)
With a week to go there isn't much time to work on new material. You basically need to consolidate all that you already know and keep yourself in a positive frame of mind (which means no late nights, no stressful activities). Take just the Verbal section of whatever practice tests you have. Afterwards, analyze every question properly. Try not a miss a single CR/RC question (read every word properly). You cannot afford to make 'silly mistakes'.
Do not stress yourself out. Relax on 11th and 12th and stay away from your books. You probably know enough to score in 750 - 800 range; it's going to be a game of nerves. During the test, try to give every question your best and don't try to second guess the software (this question is easier than the previous one - why? etc).

Is there a collection of 700+ gmat prep questions in a document? Or is it just forum tags?

Is there a collection of GMATprep critical reasoning questions?

I bought the gmat club tests. I did most of the hard section and plan to finish it this week. Should I bother at all with the gmat club verbal? Currently I'm working through the GMATprep sentence collection document. Got 17 out of the first 73 wrong with unlimited time. Learning a bunch though. =[

How does the difficulty of the Gmatprep SC document compare to OG 12 and OG verbal review?

Without practically any prep I got 73% of the OG 12 right. After prep I got 86% right in OG verbal review. And after a ton of prep I just got 82% right on the GMATprep document. Hard to know if I'm improving at all, except for the speed at which I get through these problems..
