Quick answer . . . ASAP. Take a practice exam so you know how far your score is from where it needs to be. If it isn't within 5-6 points, take the testmasters or powerscore course. I've heard they are the best.

start now, the more previos lsats you do the better, start for the oldest and work your way forward bc the newer logic games are harder than the old ones
3.67 159/164
and.......the admissions process is over! yay!

If you're taking the June LSAT, I would enjoy this semester to its fullest, then start studying along with your regular studying next semester.  Take a class as well, unless you take multiple practice exams and don't get less than a 175.  The courses will really discipline your studying so you keep up with it.

If you want a book recommendation, I used Princeton Review's "Cracking the LSAT" and did better than I expected.  But that's just me.
