My Gmat Journey has started almost 4 years back. i took Gmat 4 times, and my score pattern is as follows

Gmat1: 470, 35(Q) 21(V)
Gmat2: 500, 39(Q) 20(V)
Gmat3: 500, 43 (Q) 17(V)
Gmat4: 550, 45(Q) 21(V)

followings are the books i used to prepare.

OG 10,11,12,13, Verbal &Quant Latest Edition,
MGMAT Full 8 books with 6 Mockups.
E-gmat live classes.
Princeton Review.
Magoosh Online .
GMAT Prep Question banks,
GMAT Prep Additional 2 paid mockups

Now to the point, Basically i am an engineer with more than 10 years experience. Knowing the fact that this 10 years gap requires me to have a very good preparation to get a good score, i started my preparation from the scratch.When i evaluate my score myself, first 2 Gmat exam results are a indicative of my careless way of preparation. After almost 1 year gap i again decided to give a third shot , By this time i studied MGMAT, E-gmat and other stuff really seriously and almost all MGMAT mockups results varies from 580 to 700. Even though , i set my target 600 in my third attempt. Unfortunately i couldn't make it. After 2 months , i started my preparation again , and i enrolled in magoosh online preparation. i prepared for another 3 months and i got 550.

My target score is atleast 600. On getting all these score, i started thinking what happened to me, why i could get good scores in my mockups but not in my Real Gmat exam. My introspection says that whenever i am in a timed exam , i easily gets nervous and eventually my brain could not focus on the exact question . means, on the first time when i see the Verbal question i feel some what a blackout then slowly i have to bring my attention back to the question . This attitude consumes my time.

Now, i am planning to give my 5th and could be the last Gmat attempt. But what i feel that i am lacking a strong strategy how to approach Gmat more than the basics of the Verbal section. But i have no idea how to prepare now and what to do now, because almost Gmat preparation resources got exhausted even i know the answer once i see the question itself. even i am planning to go for a private tutor who can asses my strength and weakness closely and guide me .......

Please i need good advice and help.............
