It really depends on where you started.  If you have not really done much and got a 155 right off the bat, I'd say it is definitely possible.  If you have been studying for a while and are still at 155, then it may not happen.

Good luck

Lots of people improve 10+ points from practice. If your biggest weakness is logic games then the common sentiment is that you have much to gain from extensive studying.

There's a post from user name Chucky from a few months back that detailed how he went from a 147 to a 169 in about that time period. I'd track that down and read it.

Are one of these the posts you are referring to?

I've seen it done twice in fewer than 5 months.  You have to work EXTREMELY hard.

I went from 155 diag to a 169, so it's doable. And it doesn't take 5 months, if you can figure out what works for you. I finally found the system that worked for me (a Princeton Review 6 week class), really studied and practiced. The important thing though is to find the methods or approaches that work for you, and build on them through lots and lots of repitition.
