There is no penalty for guessing. It is in your best interest to answer every single question on the exam, even if it is a complete guess.
Work on your time management. The LSAT is made up of questions that range from extremely easy to almost impossible. It is essential to manage your time well and not spend too much time on any particular question. If you cannot find an answer, narrow it down the best you can and guess.
Prepare psychologically to take the exam only once. Go into the exam confident and well prepared and there will be no reason for you to have to go through this grueling process again. Remember: if you do take the LSAT more than once, schools usually will average the two scores together. Prepare the first time as if you do not have the option to take it again.
Practice, practice, practice. Take the time to really put yourself in the best position possible to ace the exam. Many experts recommend taking 15-20 diagnostic tests prior to your formal exam.
