1. Anyone can take the test.
2. Depends on your grades which may be translated into a different scale (used for international applicants). However, regardless of your grades, you'll need at least a 170.
3. Powerscore Bibles and these forums
4. 5 years.

Hope this helps!

It means if you took the test in June, your score will be valid for 5 years after; until June 2017.
I have to ask, though, how old are you?

You'll need the equivalent of a Bachelors degree prior to entering law school. In the mean time, you should work on your English language skills. Besides the logic games, success depends on your ability to read and interpret English. To score a 170, you'll have to compete with native speakers of exceptional verbal ability.

I knew I smelled something fishy.

Anyway, focus on your bachelor's degree and getting the best grades possible. Also, make sure that you know how these grades translate in the U.S., assuming that you're doing school in another country. Worry about that LSAT once you've secured a great GPA.

Good luck!
