FICO Simulator Accuracy?

Is it realistic?  I currently have FICO 598.  According to the FICO simulator's best plan of action suggests I pay my credit card balances down 90-100% and I'm looking at a FICO score ranging 698-738.  Well, I will have all of my cc balances paid to $0 by the end of Dec. '07.  Can I really look forward to that FICO score????  If so, that would be great!
 
 
FICO 8/5/10; TU 724, EQ 702
FICO 6/9/09: TU 669, EQ 658, EX ???
FICO 7/20/07: TU 540; EQ 595, EX 544

Its very likely you will see that jump, assuming you're never late paying, etc.

If we never set higher goals we would never get as far.

I noticed that the best plan of action always uses 24 months along with whatever advice it's offering, so realistically it's predicting age along with your paying off those balances.
