I'm planing on taking the HESI exam sometime in Feb. 2011. Im pursuing a BSN. This would be my first time taking the HESI exam.
I bought the Evolve Reach Admission Assessment Exam Review book, the Nursing School Entrance Exam (CliffsTestPrep), and McGraw-Hill's Nursing School Entrance Exams. I have to take the following eight components of the HESI A2 Entrance Test: Math, Reading Comprehension, Vocabulary and General Knowledge, Grammar, Anatomy and Physiology, Critical Thinking, Learning Styles and Personality Styles.
Does anybody have any advise on how I should prepare myself for this exam? How much time should I spend studying?
-I heard that the vocabulary section that is on the Evolve Reach Admission Assesment Exam book, is not useful in the actual exam; any recommendations on what vocabulary words I should study.
-How can I prepare myself for the critical thinking section?
-Should I just study the basics on Anatomy and Physiology or should I go into detail?
Anybody who has taken the exam please reply!!!!!
Thank you in advance.
