I think another important thing to remember is that you are allowed to take the exam twice. No one wants to fail or have to take it a second time but don't work yourself up over the exam because you get that second chance. Try to have fun with it. I know that sounds nuts but keep a positive attitude. Tell yourself when you start that you are going to do the best you can and learn from taking the exam. Go over the A&P notes and terms so that they are fresh for you. These were easy for me so find find what is easy for you and do that first on the exam.
Remember that guidelines are important. That is really what you are being tested on. Not looking up codes. The answers are given to you. You need to look for parenthetical notes surrounding the codes you are given under the subject you are testing on.
Keep positive and lighten up on yourself!
