HESI A2 Vocabulary

  1. 0 Hello everyone,

    I am new to this site and find it extemely helpful! My question is how are you studying for the Vocabulary section? I took the HESI June 28th and did well on everything else but the Vocab. Any reccomendations? Tips? Like what books to study prefixes and suffixes ( medical)? Thanks in advance!

    I honestly didn't look at anything. I don't think you can study for it. For me the questions I didn't know were just things I would have ever known. Vocab was my lowest score but I passed.

    I studied the Evolve Hesi study guide's vocab. I made flash cards from the Vocab section, and did the Study guides vocab. test's and then wrote any additional Vocob words, that were not included in the original vocab list. I would say about 50% of the HESI Test Vocab comes from this. Flash cards, to me, was the best way to study the vocab, I also put the example sentence with the definition so that I knew how it would be used in a sentence. Good Luck to you I got over a 90 on the vocab section, with this study method!!

    I think the flashcards are a great idea. I think the best suggestion I've heard is to read. I'm going to get some novels on the holocaust and history and some biographies. I will highlight and look for words I don't know. Kind of like you do in high school.

    I actually did not have to take the A&P Portion But I have heard that the HESI Evolve study guide does have some A&P information, and practice tests. Also, I head a suggestion of buying the A&P For Dummies, book and reviewing that material. I would definetly reccomend picking up the study guide, it is very informative, and sets you up to know how the test will be layed out. Sorry I could not have been of more help~Good Luck to all!

    Angel1990, Really there were only 3 words you think from the study guide? Hmm, we probably have different tests, but I would say that mine was at least 50% from the Study Guides "Vocab Test section" and "Vocab word list".. that stinks, that there were so few on your exam . When are you planning on taking it again?

    ANGEL1990,

    Moreso Medical Terminology is that a book's name?

    A friend of mine just took the test and she said that there were probably only 3 words out of the hesi book that were on her test...

    this is scary because you do not know what to expect...
    those of you who already took the test:

    Do they have words that you can figure out the answer if you know the prefix and suffixes?

    Im not sure... i dont have one. but if there are prefixes and suffixes in there then you should be fine!

    I studied the study guide and i found the vocab section to be easy. There were one or two question where it was medical terminology but not worth going out of my way and getting a medical terminology book. I scored in the high 80's this way
