I am writing GMAT at the end of this month however my mock scores are stuck around 680 to 690 (veritas prep :680,690,MGMAT:690,experts Global :680,680,650)
my verbal is at v35 to v38 and quant is hovering aroung Q46 to Q47 which i know can pull up to Q49 .
but i am scared about the verbal in my last attempt i had reached v33 in mocks but reduced v30 in actual exam

sources used :Egmat ,Veritas prep books,MGMAT ,Magoosh ,education Aisle Sentence correction Nirvana and optimus prep
random documents : 700- 800 level sc and cr

what should i do to improve my skills in SC ,CR and RC
currently for SC i am doing random sources with an accuracy of 80 to 85 percent which reduces to 75 under test condition
for CR i m practicing veritas question bank and LSAT CR and scoring 75 to 70 percent in a 25 set questions (this remains same during mock also )
for RC i am practicing daily 4 rc with an accuracy of 65 to 75 percent but the percent reduces to 60 in test conditions

what practice source should I refer to in SC specific : so as to fine tune my concepts and practice bank for the same
books etc :coaching i dont think is an option
I havenot bought an exam pack but thinking to do so : free ones i have already used up so cannot write an official mock

please suggest what to do

I did not write the following response specifically for your question, but I think it does apply to your situation:
Firstly, I am not a native English speaker and I assume that you aren't one either. What helped me a lot to get a relatively high verbal score was that throughout my life, I have read countless novels in English. My reading many books in English has helped me to get really good at reading, writing and comprehending really fast. When I was studying for the Gmat, the Manhattan Prep Gmat Sentence Correction guide and the practice problems on the Official Guide (you can purchase them both from amazon in e-book format) proved to be most helpful for the SC section. If possible, it would be useful for you to get really accustomed to how the English language "sounds" by reading interesting books in English, talking to native English speakers, and even watching tv in English. Once you know how the English language "sounds", you will see that sometimes you'll be able to correct a sentence without really knowing why it's wrong or right (On the contrary, if you don't know how it sounds you may know the SC rules but won't be able to correct a sentence). By how it "sounds" I refer to how sentences are constructed in English rather than how words sound in English. Also, practice makes perfect! Practicing Critical Reasoning and Reading Comprehension problems will also help you a lot to master the Sentence Correction section since you'll be exercising your reading and comprehension skills which means that, with time and practice, you'll able to read, understand and solve a problem more quickly and accurately. Finally, keep your expectations reasonable; after all, we non-native English speakers are at a true disadvantage in the verbal section, and to many of us, the verbal section proves way harder to master than the quant section.
oishik 2910, If you would like to purchase more books, then perhaps get the Official Guide and the Official Guide Verbal Review; they both contain plenty of very realistic practice questions (both on amazon). However, you do seem to have plenty of practice material already. Getting really good in the verbal section takes an incredible (even perhaps unfair to non-native speakers) amount of effort and a very long time. But you can still practice as much as you can to score as high as you can at the time when you'll need to take the test. Best of luck!
