- 0Jun 14, '12 by hurrlybabyHi there, Jayn 108, you need to go back to and read all my posts because I wrote every detail I remembered after I took the test. Math, Vocab, grammer and so on. it will help you a lot.
I was accepted finnaly into the Nursing program after 3 years of waiting, and trust me it will be much more harder than this simple test. I am studing right now Pharm... I know you can do it, there are only so many versions of this test, and I have seen a lot of questions I had here...
I hope this helps.
- 0Sep 17, '12 by ConcomitanceI got 100% on the math and 97% on the english. I can't help with the english; I would recommend the study guides. I did well on english because that's what my major was. I did study a lot for the math.
It is simple math, fractions, ratios, and conversions. There are a TON of comparisons, such as: 1:x, 2:15, find x. You also need to know a lot of measurements. I memorized the following:
8 ounces in 1 cup
2 cups in 1 pt
2 pts in 1 qt
4 qts in 1 gallon
16 ounces / 1 lb
2.204 lbs / 1 kg
29.5735 ml / 1 oz
.3048 meters / 1 ft
F=C(9/5) + 32
There are several metric conversions, so learn them.
If you memorize those equations, and take your time double-checking every answer, even the simple math, you'll do fine.

I am going to be taking the HESI for the first time on Thursday.
I don't thing 72.5% is a complete bomb, maybe there is someone who can study with you? where do you live? Have you tried making flash cards? I also highly recommend an app that I have on my Android phone called HESI Review by SuperFlashCard.com. Here is a link to all of the flash cards they have made for HESI review :
I wish you the best of luck. Don't stress out too much ! I have found that it is hard to study anything when you are stressed. When I get to stressed I use this tea :
Maybe it will work for you!

I got the Elsevier review book and studied for 10 days. I took the 4 practice tests in the back of the book but I dont think it helped enough. There were questions on the practice tests that were not covered in the review chapters.
I got a 68% on the Math (improper fractions killed me) and had trouble with the Bio section. I did OK on the AP part but there were questions I didnt know even though I studied the review book. I completed AP I this
Fall (got a B+) and I am registered for AP II starting in two weeks. I passed Algebra I and II with a B+.
I am frustrated. I am a 3.6 GPA in the pre-nursing classes, I work a full-time job and a part-time job as a Nurse Assistant in the ER (16 hours a week) to make me more competitive when I apply. I go to school two nights as week to complete the pre-reqs. I am a returning student after 20 years and I truly want to be a nurse. The clinical experience in the ER I love and I have learned a great deal in a short period of time
Does anyone have any advice on how to better prepare for the re-take test? I have two weeks to get ready and this re-take is my last shot for me to apply for the Fall 2009 class. You can only take the test twice in one
Thanks for your help and guidance
