You're in a similar situation I was in a few months ago, but I didn't take any prep course.
Two things that helped me:
1) Go through LGB and LRB (to understand the content)
2) Take 10 untimed PT's before moving into timed ones. This really helped me understand the exam.
Scored 165. Kill it.
This makes me feel better. How many total tests did you go through and how many months have you been at it?
Studied over the summer. Three months were serious studying, slacked off the last month leading up to September. 25-30 PT's total.
Also, post the score you want on your mirror so you see it every morning.
