I have been reviewing the last couple of weeks and will be retaking it next Wednesday. I have been using the 2nd edition HESI review guide that I got off amazon and I just had a question for all of you...
Did you notice the Grammar and Vocabulary to be more difficult the 2nd time around? I'm just wondering because I just finished doing the practice tests at the back of the study guide and Wow! these reading sections are much more difficult than I remember....
What's crazy is my school just recently changed the passing requirements for the Reading section from 75% to 85%!!!!!
Any comments or experiences are welcome.......Last edit by CinDRnyc on May 8, '12 : Reason: typo

- May 8, '12 by Lucidityi took hesi twice. first time i scored an 88, second time a 98. i had to take math, reading, grammar, chemistry, anatomy&physiology, and vocab.
i went through the hesi A2 book so many times that i had almost all of the questions & answers memorized. so to get more practice i went to Barnes & Noble and grabbed other "nursing school entrance exam" practice books, and went through their practice problems as well. This helped SOOO much! especially for math & reading. as for grammar i ignored the "what is an adjective..." part in the HESI A2 book and skipped to "most common mistakes" and such, and also did the practice problems. i discovered that some of the example sentences are almost the same as the questions stated in the test! vocab is the hardest.... pick your answer carefully. seemed like there were always two responses that sounded correct. for math i brought with me 10 sheets of scratch paper to the test, wrote each & every question down even if it seemed super easy, wrote big & clearly, worked slowly, triple checked everything, and boxed off each problem so that i didn't get mixed up with other problems. try this. i got 100% in math.
do you only have to do four sections?
- May 8, '12 by CinDRnycThank You Lucidity! I have to do Reading and Math.... Those are great pointers I really appreciate it! I'm going to need so much scratch paper for math lol Yeah the grammar is tricky they always put two that sound good but only 1 is the "best" answer.
