I had somewhat similar results - 42 quantitative & 19 verbal. To improve my verbal, I bought the Manhattan Sentence Correction & Reading Comprehension as well as the Critical Reasoning Bible. On my last practice test, I scored a 33 in verbal. I recommend these books - obviously my verbal score isn't...
