That's fantastic! Please share your prep method - it would help the OP out plus some of us who may be considering a retake. Did you prep before the 149?
Prior to the 149:
I took 1 practice test from start to finish (157), most of the timed practice runs were individual sections, they were more of a struggle
I studied while sitting on my bed, late at night at the end of the day
Didn't get the timing down
Sped through the reviews
Prior to the 160:
I took 4 practice tests from start to finish (154, 158, 159, 165)
I studied in the mornings
Got the timing down
I reviewed better (not really slower, just smarter at picking up patterns and red herrings, natural stuff just by doing it the second time through)
The light came on a little for both RC and LG, this is a part I can't explain well
I had a headache the night before the 149 that affected me on the drive to the test center in the morning but dissolved during the middle of the first section. Take that into consideration. It also was during my last semester when I took 15 hours and worked part-time. But lots of folks have that problem.
