Yeah Collins book is a really good basic starting point. Start off by re-reading it!
Firstly, you need to understand that 350 games isn't very many games. We need at least 1000 games to even start working out if we are a winning player. Even the top winning professional poker players go on streaks of thousands of games where they breakeven or even lose money. Hell, i just finished yet another 400 game breakeven stretch, it's just part and parcel of SNGs.
One of the things that is working against you is the rake at your games. It's $1 + .20 for rake. compare that to the next level up, $3 + $.40 and it's a sizeable differance. What this means is that we need to cash more often to overcome the rake. I understand it may be due to some bankroll issues, but the plan should be to aquire a decent enough bankroll to play at higher levels where the rake is much better.
Apart from that it's really hard to give any sort of advice without watching your game, otherwise i'm just generalising, which rarely helps.
I'm quite happy to take a look at a couple of HH's for you, and give you a few pointers in what you can correct. Also, you can go to the 'tournament Hand analysis section' and post some trouble hands in there.
Apart from that, check out this thread if you haven't already. [old link~tb]
Should give you some more info on what to expect from SNGs.
EDIT: Also, you mention collins book is for Full ring. Well the only real differance between the two is in the 6max game we can open up our range a little more in the early game. The late game is basically the same, with a few little adjustments.
