    The HESI study guide. I rented it from online.
    Thanks! I have the study guide as well. So it's pretty accurate from what you experienced from taking the test?

    Akilah530 thx you are awesome. Since you're a veteran in the program, what tips can you share as far as being prepared for the first day, that we should be On
    the lookout for?
    I would say be prepared, organized, focused, and ready to learn, as things will start moving quickly. To be prepared, make sure you have read ahead on the material your instructor will lecture on, try and have power points (if made available to you) printed out so you can follow along with the lecture and take notes right on the power points (if that works for you). If you dont have time to read the chapter(s), just skim through it so you can at least be somewhat familiar with the info. Oh, and if you have not already, dont rush out and buy a bunch of unnecessary school supplies for the first day. A binder w/loose leaf paper, pens and highlighters will do just fine for the first day, and probably for the remainder of the course. However, I would not buy more than that until you get a feel for the class and what you may need or want to aid you in your studies. Also make sure you have a calendar to write things down with. I know we all use our phones which works great for some, however they malfunction, get lost, etc. It helps to write down deadlines for projects/assignments, tests, meetings, etc so you will be able to see them at a glance...trust its going to get crazy. It may not be this session, but it will happen sooner or later. Now there is going to be a lot of chatter about what you should take, what you should not take, who you should or should not take it with (classes/instructors). Please take this info with a grain of salt...everyone is different, everyone learns differently. Blaze your own trail, trust your own instincts, stay encouraged, and believe in yourself. Lastly...leave your nerves at home, and try not to feel overwhelmed. Just keep in mind that classes will be over in 8 wks, and you will be on to the next set. See you next week ladies!!

    SoontobeaRN...the study guide should be very helpful. In my opinion the test pretty much mirrored the types of questions that were in the book. I guess it helps that the authors of the book are the creators of the exam which is helpful and rare to say the least. Good Luck!!!

    I have 2 at home, a 10 and a 7 yr old. My hubby is retired so thats a big plus! My 10 yr old does his own laundry, both kids help the dogs, cat and turtles. Dad pretty much cooks all of the meals with the exception of a few. I don't get to cook often, but when I do, I cook enough to last a few days. For lunch, the kids eat at school...for my lunch I pack the frozen meals (smart ones, lean cuisine, etc.). Cleaning gets done on a strictly as needed basis. You kinda have to get the family to chip in do some extra chores, if your youngest is 10 there should be no problem. The best thing to do is to let your family know exactly what you are going to be up against, put some blinders on, and do what you have to do. Thats the best way I can put it...let the chips fall where they may...just make sure you keep communicating with your family to let them know they are important, and try to spend time with them when you can.

    LOL @you feeling bad for your family last semester. I was feeling bad for myself...I didn't know if I was coming or going!!! I thought I was loosing it, and seriously thought about throwing in the towel for a minute. I felt super overwhelmed with all of the projects, papers, presentations, and exams that were going on! I took Health and Wellness (2 papers, 2 projects and presentations, and exams), Micro(1 project and presentations, all exams were essay) and Patho 2 (1 project and presentation and exams). I had a lot going on at home...would have to inbox you on that, and it was like everything was due at the same time! I was literally almost at the end of my rope, but I managed to pull through. Of course I didnt get the greatest grades in Patho and Health and Wellness, but I made it.
