I say you're a dreamer, but you're not the only one.

The appropriateness of Perpetua would probably depend on the tone of the writing.  When I used it, I (half playfully) thought the extra space made the words sort of resonate.

I've seen from my own students a 154-174 and a 156-178.
How much are you willing to put into it?

Bingo. If you're sitting in the 150s hard work and practice is the ONLY way to improve your score.

I have the summer.  I am working only 10 hours a week so that will leave time to study. But, my testmasters class is ovcr this week, so no instructor.  I did however purchase the powerscore books and the Nova book.  My problem is with logical reasoning usually -11 to - 13 with reading comp -5 to -9.  Games I usually miss no more than 3, usual being -1. I am dedicated and willing to put the time and effort.   Do you think self study will get me there?   

PS- I am new to this site...thanks for all the suggestions and comments. It made my day!

It's definitely doable.  I started at 159/160, used the same books you're studying with, and got a 172 on the real thing.  Best of luck!
