Hi,

I agree that Kaplan verbal questions may not resemble the real GMAT questions well enough. I have finished both OG 11 and OG verbal and still suffer in Verbal section in the real test. Although the OG practices resembles the real question style, yet they are way much easier than the actual test.

Now I ran out of practice materials and my test is this coming Friday, can anyone recommend a book that best resembles both the style and difficulty to the real GMAT questions?

THanks

Definitely Manhattan GMAT Sentence Correction Guide for SC.

I have yet to find a really terrific resource for CR, other than OG.

For verbal, I recommend:

(a) OG = Official Guide - This is the bible of GMAT verbal prep. Nothing in the publishing world can compare to its quality. OG 10 or 11, frankly doesn't matter too much. Also if you get OG 11 get OG Verbal Workbook. Else OG 10 by itself is good enough.

(b) Manhattan SC to be done in tandem with OG.

(c) Kaplan Verbal Workbook - esp the appendix portion in the end.

(d) Kaplan 800 - though Im not a great fan of the quality of Kaplan questions (as opposed to the "real" GMAC questions), this gives you some food for thought.
