    Alphadog, I took the HESI a few months ago. I made an 82 overall. I studied from the end of July through until I took it in Sept. I really think you need that much time to absorb all the info...even if it's reviewing the material over and over. I think I remember reading at the beginning of the study guide to give yourself as much study time as possible. I also pulled out my old physiology and anatomy books to help me review certain sections. I'm not sure if this will help but I think more study time may help you out. I also purchased a math review book by Kaplan called Math for Nurses which walked me through a lot of the types of problems that were on the test and explain in-depth on how to work them out. I know I wouldn't have passed the math section if it weren't for that book! Good luck to you!

    I failed the HESI A2 Biology and Chemistry..do you have any advice? some of the questions were stuff that was not even close to being in the HESI study guide by evolve. I have one more chance to take it Friday and I am so worried.

    I did not have to take the Chemistry part, but did well on the Biology. I looked over my notes from A&P. Know the cell and it's structures and their functions. There was something about plant vs. Human cells so review photosynthesis. Also meosis and mitosis. Use the study guide as just that, a guide. Then go into your notes and review. The test is not supposed to be the same the next time around, but should be similar, so brush up on anything you remember. Also, google HESI, I found a lot of good advice from several sites prior to my test. Good luck!

    Has anyone taken both the HESI and TEAS? Some schools I am applying for require TEAS and one requires the HESI. I'm getting a study guide for the TEAS soon but should I get one for the HESI too? Is there an online studyguide and quizzes like the one for TEAS through the ATI website or are there only books to study for the HESI?

    I recently took the HESI and passed! Our test only had math, reading, vocab and grammar. I followed some of the advice I read on this site to study. I really only used the Mosby Hesi review book and I used the flash cards and practice tests at www.test-guide.com
