I m really in need of your suggestions. I have appeared for GMAT thrice. Below are my scores:

Nov 2017- 610(Q48, V25) ( with 2 months of preparation)
5th July 2018 - 640(Q49, V27) (with 4 months of preparation)
9th Sep 2018 - 590 (Q48, V22) (with 1.5 months of preparation)

Preparation material:
CR: EGMAT and CR Bible
SC: Egmat and Manhattan SC

Also, I have also studied from OG and verbal review 2018. I m really shattered from the my last score. I took all the 6 official gmat mocks. Took all the 6 gmat mocks during my 2nd and 3rd attempt and here are my scores:
Mock Before 2nd Attempt Before 3rd Attempt
1 6 May-660(Q50 V28) 15 Aug-670(Q50,V31)
2 29 Aug- 690(Q50,V33)
3 20Jun -670(Q50,V31) 28Aug-680(Q49,V32)
4 24Jun-630(Q50,V25) 1 Sep- 680(Q50,V31)
5 28Jun 620(Q50,V25) 4 Sep- 650(Q49,V30)
6 2 Jul 710(Q49,V38) 7 Sep- 490(Q50,V9)- exam ended unexpectedly after 3rd question in verbal

Could you please guide me. I still want to give one more try and score 700+ but I really dont know how to start this time.
It will be really helpful if you could guide me.

Here are my two cents:

Verbal

When you practice questions, take all your time and solve the questions correctly. You should be certain why the other four answers are incorrect. You may work on your timing in a later stage of preparation.

Quant

Understand the gaps. Either some of your concepts need extra work or you make silly mistakes in some calculations.

Maintain a handwritten error log to track the kinds of mistakes you commit. Try and understand the root cause of the mistakes. Work on them. Most importantly, study with 100% focus. You may study only for an hour in one sitting but do so with complete focus.

All the best!

Since there have not been any follow-up posts, I assume that you are still studying for the GMAT. GMAC has publicly stated that the Official Score that you earn on Test Day is within +/- 30 points of actual ability. Your 3 Official Scores show that you essentially performed the same each time (about 610 +/- a few points), even though your Scores are spread out over the course of almost a year. As such, it's possible that you have gotten 'stuck' at this particular score level.

Before I can offer you the specific advice that you’re looking for, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying since you last took the GMAT and your goals:

Studies:
1) What study materials have you used over the last month?
2) How many NEW CATs have you taken during that time? How have you scored on EACH of those CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?

Goals:
3) What is your goal score?
4) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
5) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
6) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

As was pointed out, you have not responded since your original post. Are you still studying for the GMAT? Do you need some further advice?

Verbal clearly continues to be a big issue. Which section in Verbal is your main area of concern?

Also, if you can post your ESR, it would help in analysis.
