Pace yourself.

Set your speed limit and keep moving. Don't spend too much time puzzling out hard questions that you lose the time to find and answer the easier ones. Work on less time-consuming questions before moving on to more time-consuming ones. Be sure to mark the unanswered questions and come back later.

You don't have to read the directions as long as you know them in advance. Get to the first question right away. You should save every valuable minute for the questions.

Keep track of time during the test. You should develop the habit of occasionally checking your progress through the test, so that you know when you are one-fourth or half of the way through the time allotted for a section, and when you have 5 minutes left.

Don't forget to bring a watch on the test day!
