For a listening or speaking exam watching a film in that language with the subtitles in that language can be really helpful. Suppose it gets my brain in gear

Make sure you know the relevant vocabulary (often textbooks will provide vocabulary lists, or you teacher may have given one).
Then make sure you understand the grammar that might be relevant (for example, for a french test on holidays I might make sure I know the past tense to talk about previous holidays, adjectives to describe the area, comparisons to compare previous holidays, opinion words etc.)
Also look at previous assessments or marked work to see where your weaker areas are (e.g. for me, I often misuse the subjunctive in french and misspell plurals in German) and do some individual practice on that.

You can use websites such as languagesonline to build up or consolidate your knowledge.

Good luck
