How many practice tests did you do, and how many times per week?
The insane amounts of practice tests for score increase seems to be what I hear most often when I ask what I can do to improve my score. Did you do 5 section tests or 4?
Mine has gone up from a 157 to 173-178 range after a course (taken twice), 2.5 years of study (with a year break in the middle after I kept scoring in a holding pattern) where there's been a few breaks (because I have a life-somewhat), but there were long stretches of doing 2-3 exams a week, going over them, doing study material, etc. It's doable.
There's a number that's your peak. It may take a while to get there. Perhaps I'm slow, but my score has slowly been creeping up through this time, over all.
Uh, I hate to point this out, but at this rate its seems like you would be doing tests over again. I did every availible disclosed test in 2 and a half months. Perhaps your improvement are the result of residual memory? Even if this is not true in your case, this is something to avoid.
