Keep checking that you are placing your answer in the correct section and number on the answer sheet.
Don't spend too much time on any one question. You should spend only seconds on the easiest questions, and hesitate to spend more than 1-2 minutes on even the hardest ones.
Practice, practice, practice!
Remember that the SAT consists of a series of small, timed, mini-tests. Keep track of the time you're allotted for each one and how much time remains.
Bring a watch to the test center. You can't be guaranteed that there'll be a working clock there.
