Practice, practice, practice.

Overhead is easy (IMO). It's similar welding in the flat position (in terms of puddle control), so it's easy to see and control the puddle unlike welding vertical up. The trick is to get in a comfortable position (not always easy to do) and try to brace your arm/elbow on something. When taking my arc test at school I ran the amps just a hair lower than flat. Most of my welding experience is in stick and flux core with NR232, but the advice should apply to MIG welding, too.
