Hesi Calculator

  1. 0 Quick question...

    I take the Hesi exam on wed and wanted to know about the calculator in the math section. I know they have one that pops up or something but I don't know what type it is.

    What functions can you do with it? Add? Subtract? Can you enter fractions into it?

    Thanks!!

    IIRC it's just like the basic calculator on a desktop computer. Add, subtract, multiply, divide decimals. No fraction.capability that I can remember but you can always convert them to decimals.

    Good luck!

    its a basic calculator. It mult. divides. subtracts. adds. thats all, just your basics!! no need to worry though, cause thats all you will need to do for the HESI math sections, I took it a few weeks ago, got a 96 in the math section. very easy. make sure to study your metric convertion table though, there are a few questions about converting milliliters to liters and such.

    The math is basic just like in the Admission Assessment...addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of whole numbers, decimals, fractions, mixed numbers; percentages, ratios...and those darn Roman numerals and conversions (nothing too difficult). I didn't even see the calculator until I had almost finished the math section!

    I'm taking it (second time...different school) on Wednesday. I made a 94.73 last February.

    Good luck!
