Re: 166 in 1st fulll length prep test, possible 170+ for Feb 14?

Getting over the 170 bump is one of the hardest things to do when it comes to LSAT prep.

Take another 2 or 3 tests over the next week. If there is an upward trend, then maybe you could pull off a 170+

How much time can you spend studying between now and T-day? Your score is promising for an initial diagnostic but it doesn't give you that much information. Your "true" PT score could a 161 and you squeezed out 5 points through dumb luck. You can't be confident of 170+ unless you're taking a bunch of PTs and all of them are in the mid-170s. If you can do 10-20 PTs before test day, you might be able to get there.

But, since thousands of dollars and your career ride on the decision, just wait until June so you can devote proper time to studying and building consistency. I assume you aren't applying this cycle, so taking in Feb. provides zero real advantage.

Wait until June, hit the mid-170s if possible, and depending on your GPA, enjoy excellent opportunities next year.

I second advice to shoot for June. The only way I would consider testing for February is if you truly (being honest with yourself) have the time and dedication to spend a minimum of 4 hours a day 6 days a week studying until test day.

If exhaustion is your problem, then start doing six-eight section tests. It'll make a 5-section test feel like a cakewalk real quick.

I assume you've already signed up --if so, I'd evaluate where you're at, and if you really think you can put in serious, full-time-job style time into studying, then sure, I can't see why it wouldn't be possible -- but anything short of 4h/6d with 4 weeks left just seems like setting yourself up for failure, friend.
