i am having the same dilemna about taking the weekend class. they offer the full length course in miami, but I am currently in china, and won't be back until the end of august and the class starts in the beginning. i want to take the test in oct in order to apply early to the schools i want to go to, but i'm afraid i won't have enough time to prepare. so i'm tempted to wait until dec in order to get the best possible score. i've been doing alright on the practice tests, above 160, but, i'd like to hit at least 170. any advice?
