Same way as any other class really - it's always a crapshoot how much material the professor will make available from past classes to help you study, even having somebody who has been at it for 20 years doesn't guarantee any insight in how the exam will go. Don't let it psych you out.

It's hard to say what the best response to this kind of anxiety is. Everyone comes from a different angle. To me, what helped was realizing that my self-worth was not tied to my law school performance. It was another challenge but not the end or the final goal or anything especially significant. Give it your best, and live your life on your terms whatever the results are. Everyone else is nervous and scared shitless too.
