    So for anyone that haven't taken the HESI as yet, and looking to do it at BC central campus, you will have to register and pay in advance. I won't be able to take mines this Tuesday as I planned, but will be doing it on May 8th instead. There are no more openings until that week, the other times are all booked. On a positive note I will have more time to study

    Soo I took the HESI today and got a 91 overall 98 in reading, 94 in grammar, 76 in vocab, 100 in A&P, and 86 in math. The reading and grammar were the easiest parts, pretty much common sense. The math was straight from the study guide (LOTS of fractions!! and lots of percentages, ratios, conversions) I also had a few questions on military time. The vocabulary was tricky but it was mostly from the book mixed with some medical terms. Anatomy was only 30 questions and they majority was on glands and hormones. I've heard that they ask a lot of questions on hormones so I made sure I memorized all of the functions and it helped me a lot. The other questions I remember were about the menstrual cycle, locations of bones, and parts of the cell. I hope this helps Good luck everybody!

    Hi! Good luck on your upcoming Hesi exam! I personally got an 89 overall on my Hesi. I got into the nursing program with 6 PTs! I did have the Broward resident pt but no Hosa for me either, so have some faith! ...as for the conversions on the exam I don't recall them giving it to you but maybe I'm mistaken. I took it about a year or so ago so I kind of forgot. I know that they give you a calculator on the screen..

    Thank you so much, that was great help.

    I took Microbiology years ago on central campus-I loved it! I found it easier than Biology A&P and Chem....lots of hands on and experiments to do, and it was easier to memorize
