Have looked sparingly through the Logic Games bible, but other than that, I have no prior experience with the test.  Took my first diagnostic yesterday and scored a 151.  Am looking to score in the 160's.  Is it realistic to improve my score that much by October?
I know everyone is different, but would like to hear opinions by those who have taken the LSAT, and how much improvement is realistic. 
I am taking a full length Powerscore class starting in July.
Thanks

Its your first PRACTICE test, so relax. Its the real deal that people tend to only improve by 2 points on retake. Just keep studying and you should be fine. A 151 is not Harvard material, but you could do worse. Whats your GPA, what schools you reaching for?

Good to know.  I have a 3.8 gpa after being adjusted, and have good softs/recommendations.  I am looking to attend the University of Washington, but if not there, am hoping to settle for a state school somewhere in the West/Rocky Mountain region, hopefully top-50.  I know without a 160+ there isn't much hope, but am hoping 4 months of consistent studying will help.

9 points is significant but very doable.  What's your study plan?

Thanks for the responses.  I am signed up for the October test date.  I will be working full time while studying, but am taking a full length course, and am starting to spend at least 2 hours per night studying, while taking a practice test/ or two on the weekends.  Hoping to put around 15 hrs. per week in.  Thoughts or suggestions?
