I've studied for this exam since January 2012. No joke. I was supposed to take the June '12 exam, but didn't feel comfortable enough with my PTs in the lower 150s so I pushed it back for a year where I only really did hardcore studying mid-April before the next June exam when I got a 158. I must have read the Bibles a million times over, but always come up short on the actual PTs I'm taking now in the lower 160s due to silly mistakes that I wouldn't have made if I wasn't so hurried to finish the section in time. Untimed, I get in the upper 160s, but at this point, I don't want to risk getting a lower score if I'm still not making any jump from what I had before due to burnout during practice and overall stress.
I will be applying for this coming cycle so what should I do?
Also, the work is not an issue. I've dedicated five hours a daily for four days a week to this so I am putting in the effort.

Well that's another issue actually. It's scattered among a few different Logical Reasoning question types so there's no definite weakness in one area or the other. I do go back and reread the strategies for the questions, but the follow-through for implementing them on the PTs just doesn't happen. On an timed section alone, without the other four, I miss only three questions versus timed PTs and untimed sections when I miss six or more. There's no clear pattern.
