    Stupid question, but what is the psb entrance test? Is that like the NLN entrance exam that is usually given prior to acceptance to school?

    here's a hit regarding verbal portions of entrance exams. Brush up on learning root words, suffixes & prefixes. That way even if you don't the word, you'll have an easier time trying to figure it out. Trust me...this works! I did awesome on the verbal part because of this.

    Good luck!

    AmyLiz Thanks for the tidbit....been trying to do that but the kicker is there are verbal, non-verbal, and math in this one segment of the test....academic apptitude.....11pages and only 45 min......it takes time to figure the math problems.....takes time to figure out the non verbal portion ....and to beat all ...all of these are put in this test #1 verbal question #2 math # 3 non verbal which makes it difficult to flop back and forth ...trying to figure each question out and thinking about the limited time i have to answer 90 question in only 45 min!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TOTALLY FRUSTRATING!!!!!!!!!!!! but anyway thank you for the help I NEED A LOT OF IT !!!!!!!

    I took the PSB-RN test back in Jan. I got a nursing review booking by Marion Gooding, i think it was the 16th edition, and i believe it was titled Nursing school and allied health entrance exams...i scored in the 90th percentile on all but one section for the test. The only section i didn't do that well on was the science which i go 81% on (not bad really but wished it was higher) there were some bio, and physics questions on there that i was just not prepared for. I really suggest the review book though, it helped me the most!

    GOOD LUCK!
