Yes. For example, Pithypike's method recommends having 3 copies of games.

This really depends on the individual. One of the posters wrote a blog entry about reusing PTs that I thought was useful.

I'd wait at least 24 hours before attempting to redo a test, but an alternative is that you can redo sections where you had a lot of problems or questions that you missed.
The benefit? Things start to click when I repeat problems. Sorry for the cookie-cutter "click" answer, but it's true.

I just retook a practice test this morning. I scored a 173 and I had time to spare on everything except logic games (LR -2/-2, RC -1, LG -7). I waited one week before retaking it. Despite this, I kept getting this feeling like I just knew what the right answer was. I am not sure if this is because I have already taken the test or if I am reinforcing good technique. Every time I move to a next question or set of questions it starts with "Oh, I remember this one.." This makes me wonder if I am approaching this in the correct way.
