Mahatab,

I believe it depends on the school. Some average them and some take the highest.

You REALLY need to contact the school to find out.

What was your score the first time?

If you have the $$ and are motivated the prep class will help. I haven't taken one, but I know some people that have and they both said they were worth it.

Your target score is modest enough that I think you shouldn't have a problem.
