    Hi Everyone
    Sorry I have not replied.
    I have been busy studying!
    Wish me luck.
    Tomorrow is my re-take

    Thanks!
    Any update? I'm curious to see how you did the 2nd time around. You're lucky that you have that option; my school only allows the HESI once per admission cycle. Good luck!!

    I would recommend the HESI study guide. I used that one, and just got a 97 on my HESI. The math is easy but you can easily screw it up if you are not a math person and you don't memorize how to do all that stuff (that you never have to use in everyday life!) Just memorize all the math, and go over all the sections in the book and do the things they recommend in the HESI HINT sections and I think you will be fine. GOod Luck!! I spent about 15-20 hours total brushing up for the HESI. It is worth it!!

    Thanks very much.
    Were there any other books or websites you used to get ready? There are a lot on the NET but not much on the HESI.

    Thanks.
    I got a copy of the HESI study guide from the school library. That's what I used to study from. I passed the 1st attempt. Good luck on your next test!

    Has anyone had to take the physics part of the HESI and is it really as hard as it is in the study guide?

    I just took the HESI entrance test today and did not pass all the sections. I took about 3 weeks to prep for this. Fortunately, I only have to retake 1 section. For those that haven't taken it yet, I'll just share what I did for prep work in case it helps:
    I got a 92 in Math. It was truly fractions, rations and very basic math. Only a couple of questions with conversions to metrics. I used the Kaplan guide and did all of the practice questions. Know your fractions & ratios.

    Reading comprehension and grammar 94. Take your time with the reading seaction. In our school, the part you have to read stays on screen with each question so you have lots of opportunity to re-read the material.
    Grammar: I found this ridiculously easy.

    Chemistry - I've never had chemistry and studied using Chemistry for Dummies. Its a good book but a little to much detail for the test. I would recommend the Kaplan guide instead. I passed this with a 72 --I actually feel pretty good about it.

    Biology: I took biology 2 years ago and used my notes & the Kaplan guide. I got a 72.

    A&P: I've never had this and didn't study for it. I took it for fun to see how I'd do. Giggles - only a 48!

    I have to retake biology because the school I want to go to requires a grade of at least 62 in chemistry and an average of a 75 between Chem and 1 other science. I have a better chance bringing up my biology score than my A&P.

    The important thing to do is reduce the # of things you're weak on so... get comfortable with math, vocabulary and reading. Those should be BASIC to anyone wanting to be a nurse.

    Then focus on the items you struggle with. Get help from anyone willing to lend it, including the school you're testing at. Some may have study groups or test quizzes.

    Good luck and God Bless America

    I don't know if the dental hygiene requirements are the same so I don't want to mislead you. The test I took, we were not allowed calculators as there is an online one that is really simple to use. Our proctor also had hand held ones we could borrow. I didn't use it, I just used the computer one. For me, scrap paper makes me happy and we were given some to use.
    In terms of metrics, there were a couple of kilometer & milligram questions. There were some household conversions so know your cups, ounces, gallons etc..
    There was one or 2 mole questions and a few "solve for x". A lot of fractions, ratios & simple math. I am not a genius and I got a 92. My girlfriend who didn't study math at all got a 90. She's been helping her fourth grader with his homework and that is really all she needed.

    Good luck! You can do it

    I took my test yesterday but made 80-89%. I think the test is basically comprehensive. Just take your time to pick the best answer. The comprehension is very trickish, but take your time to pick the best answer after 2 distractor.:typing.
