Help! Taking NET test!

  1. Hi there! I'm going to be applying to my school's nursing program next spring, but as you all know I have to take the NET test first. It's tomorrow, and even though I've studied, I still don't feel entirely confident.

    My particular area of concern is the math portion. Can any of you share what you remember about the content of the math sections?

    Thank you so much! :bowingpur

    Well, the math starts out easy enough then progresses into fractions (adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing), figuring percentages, and then into basic algebra. Oh I think it had Roman Numerals also. I had not taken any math classes in a good 20 years, so I think you should be OK.
    Best of luck :wink2:

    I took the NET on Valentines Day this year. There is a handbook study guide available in the bookstore at my school. Did you check your's?? The math was elementrary stuff. I am really glad I looked the guide over because I forgot many years ago how to do some of it. From what I can remember, it had addition and subtraction with decimals, multiplication and division (+/-), variables, ratios and i don't know if there were any conversions. My exam was paper and pencil (and not very well organized). We did not finish the exam until 10:30pm on Valentine's day. It was very depressing. I thought I had failed but I passed and I just finished my first semester of nursing school. Good Luck on your exam.

    Oh, and my school also had a copy in the library.

    Yes, I've purchased two study guides (all right, I bought one and exchanged it for the second after I finished with it) and worked through all the practice tests several times. I guess I'm paranoid that it's going to break out, oh, calculus or something outrageous.

    But it's fairly basic, then?
