Doing bad in the actual test

I prepped for Math 2 using Barron's, Princeton's and the Official Study Guide. I took all the practice tests, timed myself. I got 700+ in the Barron's tests, 800 on Princeton and 800 on the Official tests.
But the actual test is a different story. I sat for it today, I missed a total of 11 questions! I missed 6 questions in the first 45 questions then my time ran out and I couldn't even see the last 5 questions. Everybody told me that the actual test is easier than the Barron's but I beg to differ.
I faced a lot of questions today that I have never seen before. Some of them were so big, that it took me an entire 30 secs just to read through them and understand.

What should I do now?

    Forget about the test until your score arrives. Then you can make some decisions.

    Curious - what topics did you see that weren't in Barrons. My D used it to study and the only one she thinks she missed was converting a standard deviation to a percentile (she knows the SD concept, but hadn't memorized the population % tied to a number of SDs). She said there were no matrix or vector questions.

    As noted above, there's not much you can do right now. Once you get your score - Friday - you can decide whether you want to take it again.
