    Know that you can take it again. Most universities will take the best out of three scores. 

    Plan on taking it again. Sign up for the next test date as soon as you can. 

    There is just so much studying you can do for the SAT.  It tests the knowledge you have and how you use that knowledge. 

    Concentrate on how you take the exam. If you don’t know an answer should you guess or leave it blank?  Work on time management. Some students spend way too much time on one question then don’t finish the section.

    Be prepared. Have everything you need to take the exam all together days before the exam. Get rest and eat a good breakfast.

    as long as the fear keeps you studying and not choking on test day -- you're good.

    MEDITATION. It helped me a great deal when I went to Medical School.
