Take the test as many times as you can before test day. Go to as many Kaplan free test sessions as you can. Bring your own tests, because they always give out either 37, though sometimes they have 57 as well. They'll give you dirty looks, but they won't do anything.

If anxiety is a problem a retake is probably in your future as well.

One thing that helped me really get in the right mood for the test:

I find that people either need to amp themselves up or calm themselves down for test day (usually the latter). With your morning routine, you should start immediately trying to come up with ways to do this, and implement this on all tests you take between now and test day. (I had a 37-minute playlist of mellow songs for a 32-minute drive - the extra time allowed for some traffic + a few minutes to sit in the car and chill to the last song).

How are you timing-wise on the tests? If you're not having trouble finishing under 35, try to work down to 32-33 (probably not enough time to cut more drastically than that) so that on the test you can feel like you have plenty of time and can work deliberately.

YMMV, but I went out and partied the night before. Being hungover didn't allow me to be anxious.
