GMAT Verbal or just detailed English is my MAJOR CRUX!!

Before I took the test for the first time I knew this. Extra time was put into the English on the test, SC specifically. The OG 12th Edition was used and kind of helped. The explanations in that book baffle me. After taking the GMAT I am taking a break before SERIOUS study has to begin.

Do you know of any books that explain the answers to the OG Verbal, OG Quantitative, and the OG in more basic ways, such as from Manhattan GMAT/Kaplan/Princeton Review or any other philosophies?
(Not the regular overall Manhattan GMAT/Kaplan/Princeton Review books but one with better answers to the exact questions from the different OG)

This has probably been answered in the past but I did not see the thread. Just taking the advice from NGUFO: Never give up, Fight on!!

Thank you well in advance.

You can buy the Manhattan Official Guide Companion Plus (online version). Check it out on Manhattan website.
I used it and I thing the explanation for the quant section is more detail than the original OG. But, it doesnt cover the verbal part.

Thank you for the reply yuliawati. The verbal section is by far the more important area for me. My book level english is not up to par with GMAT english.
