I always seem to miss 7-12 questions on my Practice LSATs (~167-174), but it's over silly, careless mistakes that I'm hoping test day stress will alleviate.  Did anyone have this experience?

Yes

June 2005 afte prep, scored -7 points than average; Oct 2005 w/ zero prep, scored +4 than my prior average. All in the state of mind, go in like Peter from Office Space.

I practiced consistently 172-176. Got a 174 on the real thing. The entire thing seemed harder in a real testing environment. More rushed, questions weren't easily decipherable, not enough time to check all my answers, etc. Afterwards I definitely felt like I could've done better if I'd been able to retake it.

I scored 171/172/171 the week of the test over 3 preptests and then the day before the test I took Sept '06 and got 167.  Hit 176 on test day Dec'06.  Took another practice LSAT a while later for kicks and got a 166, so I'm glad I peaked on test day.  I went into the test with no nerves whatsoever, because I was 19 and too naive to care too much--it helped not having the weight of the world on my shoulders, as some people do when they go in to test.
