I have just completed SAT IIC test from SAT II reals, and got 760, only because of such errors:

- I think sin x, but sign cos x [repeated three or four times]
- Letters have exchanged places for me [a b<a]

Thus: 39 insted of 44, which is according to conversion table 800, and not the first from bottom...

Do You have any ideas how to avoid such errors?

Lol welcome to the 700 zone. It's all about getting lucky and not making stupid mistakes. Figure out what stupid mistakes you usually make (trig, for example) and anytime you see a problem with trig a light should go off in your head...remind yourself to check it if you have time. Don't make the same stupid mistake twice.
