Entrance Exam ... 07/13/2017
Yesterday, I took the HESI A2 Entrance Exam. The exam was actually a bit harder than what I had initially expected. However, I pushed through it. My journey to becoming a nurse is a bit different than most. I'm 26 years young. I already hold a BS in Biology - Biochemistry, BS in Psychology and a Master of Public Health. So i'm doing things a little backwards.
For the programs that I applied to I was required to take READING, MATH, VOCABULARY, GRAMMAR
, ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY, AND CRITICAL THINKING. The learning styles sections were also available, however optional for my particular program.
Once I arrived at the testing center, I received two pieces for scratch paper, two number 2 pencils, and a basic function calculator. After given instruction, I was able to select the order of the sections I wanted to complete. My testing center & testing experience in general was terrible. The center was quite noisy as it was located next to a very busy construction site.
After the first section, the guy next to me began to cry (assuming he didn't get the desired score) and he walks out. The guy across the room had tourettes. It was a very hard test taking experience.
ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY (84%)
GRAMMAR (78%) *Worst Section* - Master this section.
CRITICAL THINKING (800)
Composite Score: 88.4%
To prepare for the exam, I used 2 Books.
- HESI Assessment Exam Review, 4TH Edition ($40)
- Human Anatomy & Physiology (Marieb, Human Anatomy & Physiology) - I had since undergrad.
I'm here to answer any questions that you may have for the HESI.
