I took the test in Dec 2012, and throughout November was averaging 176 on PTs and never dropped below 174. Then, the Sunday before my test, I took a 2011 test and didn't even get to the last 5 questions of RC, which was normally my best section and the one that I always finished minutes early. It really worried me. But I took a break most of the week, only doing one PT on Wednesday, which was back to my average and a 2012 test. When I went into my test, my first section was RC and similar in difficulty to that Sunday's test. Luckily, I knew that I needed to be on guard and was able to finish barely on time, and I ended up getting just over my average for my score. So relax, everyone has outliers, and be glad you got yours out before the actual test. Plus, I'm sure you learned something from that one test, so just store it and really focus on test day. I was the image of serenity that day even though I only had a little sleep and had normal nerves, because I knew that mindset - serene confidence - was what would let me just view the test as any other PT.

Yeah, I think I remember 64 being a confidence killer right before my retake. A few days off will probably do you well, maybe with a little untimed drilling here and there to keep you fresh.
