just be perfect in everything else
they use that same test in Ohio, I believe, and I passed when I took it the first time. The key is to focus, concentrate, and make sure you do everything else perfectly, which isn't too difficult. The U-turn was the most difficult for me, and I actually put a foot down (not enough speed). However, since I was fine through every other portion of the test, I still passed with a score well above the minimum. So just do well through everything else, and that will allow a small mistake through the cones or the U-turn (cones weren't that hard, though).
