    Hello everyone ( and the hidden Guest),

    I am to in the process of completing A&P and Micro. I will begin my Spring Break along with taking time off from work to focus on one thing, which is this Hesi. I recently purchased the 3rd edition of the study guide and Algebra is included in the Math portion...who knew? It's a tad-bit different from the 2nd one that I have been using.

    How far in advance to you need to schedule to take the hesi at broward? Also, how long does it take to get the results? Are the final results sent electronically to broward immediately after the exam is submitted or do you print the results and hand ten in with the application?

    To alokiheath...answering your question, they like you to schedule it about 10-14 days before you plan on taking it. The results are printed out to you within 10 minutes of completing the exam. You turn the results in with your application. Hope I helped....

    I scheduled my HESI on Jan 24th I believe and I am taking it on April 6th at 9am. My friend just registered for it also for the same date so as long as they have the date available I don't think it should be a problem. Scores are good for two years I believe

    Where should I begin...I took the exam. It was 55 questions per section, with the exception of a&p which was 30. For Math, I had a lot of word problems, fill in the blank and conversions. Vocab was very tricky, it had unusual (some words that I never seen or heard of) words in definition and sentence format with a few (just a few) words from the book. Reading had about 5-6 questions per passage (some short and some long). A&P was very random (literally) and tricky. Missed a couple just by a few points, and did not meet the 80% mark. Good luck to you all.

    Which sections did you not meet the 80% mark?

    Just a little tip that was given to me by one of the instructors that ran the HESI entrance exam, review the Anatomy & Physiology Made Incredibly Easy book along with the HESI study guide, know your household measurements, and remember to breathe. I found both of them to be very helpful (except for the vocab, you need a dictionary for that!).

    Keep your head up Juliansmom2011! You've done great so far preparing for this application process and I know you're determined to get accepted. You WILL get there!

    The sections I didn't pass was Vocabulary, A&P and Math; and what suck about the 6 month wait is that I won't be able to apply until Summer 2014, due to the fact that I took the exam 03/30 and 6 month will be until September.

    Thanks for the reassurance, I really appreciate it because I've been a bit upset, not only for the fact I didn't pass, but I have to wait 6 whole month to retake it again. God knows best.

    I hope you all do well.

    Are you sure you have to wait 6 months to retake the HESI? I think that will be the case starting August 2013. I would double check that if I were you. This is what I found on the HESI Q & A:

    http://www.broward.edu/academics/pro...entTestFAQ.pdf
    11. Can the test be retaken?
    Yes. Re-test is permitted after the initial unsuccessful testing result with an additional cost for the
    test applied for every attempt. However, as of August 2013 will have a limit of only two (2) attempts
    for the HESI Test with six (6) months between the first and second attempt. The second attempt
    requires the HESI A2, Version 2.

    It doesn't say August 2013 nursing entrance applicants, just the date. Last time I checked we're not in August. I say you study your butt off and go retake that test and stay on track to apply for next term. If they say no, fight it. The wording does not reflect that you can't retake it right now. Just my opinion though.
