HESI @ Gloucester County College

  1. 1
    Has anyone recently taken the HESI Entrance at GCC? I'm scheduled to take it next month and was wondering which areas I should concentrate.

    Also, would anyone happen to know what kind of scores I'll need to stay competitive for admission?

    Thanks.

    Hello Rosehammer:

    I took my HESI for a college in FL, however, I was told you need to score above 80% to secure a spot. The areas are: math, grammar, reading, critical thinking, A & P, and vocab. Some schools also test on chemistry ( mine did not). I would focus on all of these subjects

    Good luck!

    Sorry about the location. I was going to put it in the HESI forum first, but thought since it's a New Jersey school......

    Just so you know, ALL HESI, NCLEX, and TEAS posts belong in the respective forums in the student section regardless of the school location. Moderators will move as needed. No problem.

    Thanks Red! Our HESI has Bio, Chem, Grammar, Reading, Critical Thinking, and Vocab. We need at least 80% to pass each section, but just because we pass each section doesn't secure us a spot. Each school is different in what sections are on the exam. I was just wondering if anyone had taken the one at GCC recently and could give me a heads up on what I need to focus on in regards to each section.

    I believe a score of 85% with an A will put you in a decent position for acceptance. Of course, it will all depend on the applicant pool that you apply with.

    I read through (but did not study) the HESI study guide and scored very well on the test. I would gauge how much you need to study by how well you remember each of the subject matter as you go through them. I think it is wise to take the test as early as possible so you can repeat it as needed.

    Check back in with your scores when you get them!

    I was thinking 85-90% as well. Which HESI Study Guide did you read through? I see mixed feelings on many of the guides that are "recommended". I'll be taking the HESI at the beginning of December for the first, and hopefully only, time. The only reason I'm waiting so long is because I need the Bio and Chem prereqs for A&P as well as for a refresher for the HESI. And don't worry about me posting scores. I'll have them up here as soon as I get them!

    I used the Evolve study guide ( the Admission Assesment) 3rd edition..also I used the GED math book ( trust me it's worth the money). Well the science portion of the Hesi guide leaves something to be desired..so I would study off of your class notes..

    Hey Red! Thanks for the post! I've heard that about science part of the HESI Guide as well. And the GED Math book was helpful? Maybe I'm over thinking it. Did you take the exam yet and if so, did you take it at GCC and how'd you do?
