I took PCAT 3 times:) and I've been accepted for fall 2006. First two times I didn't study at all, when I realized that I was not so brilliant as I thought I was:) I just prisoned myself for 3 weeks before the exam and studied, studied and studied:) I did well, although I failed English (it is not my native). I also got two more interviews which I cancelled since I 've been accepted to the school of my first choice.
Take PCAT as many times as you need, make sure your score is better each time and not worse. The number of times you are taking PCAT shows your persistence to succeed.
Ok, I hoped it helped and good luck!!!

About 5 points. I didn't really study that much more, I was just a little bit more relaxed. :)
