Hello all. I've been studying for the HESI (which I'm taking Oct. 11th) and whenever I search for "pre-tests" I get results for an A-2 test and some other versions. The test I registered for was simply the HESI and I was told (by the college -- hopefully not because they just want to make money) that the best study guide was the HESI Admission Assessment 3rd edition. So, I studied the math section and then went online to see if I could find some practice tests and the questions were not similar - a few but, not many. I was on "proprofs.com" and "quizlet.com" and they didn't ask any algebra or fraction questions to name a few but those topics are in the book. I felt like I studied for the wrong exam. Does anyone know, if I am studying from the 3rd edition book by Elsevier -- is this a good study guide? Would anyone happen to know a good site for some pre-test questions? Any input appreciated! Thank you!!
Quizlet works great even with vocab, grammar, reading comprehension. I'm not certain about the math on quizlet. however, i did purchase a book last year by Mosby Elsevier, HESI evolve reach-Admission Assessment Exam Review-2nd Edition book. And between studying the math step by step there and watching YouTube videos online in simple steps, that helped me. I just passed my HESI entrance exam today!! Just study your math basics, addition, subtraction, division, fractions, percentages; conversions from decimal to percentage and vice versa, ratios...you should be good to go!
One piece of advice you don't have to try to memorize everything it'll just stress you out. take your time but don't stay stuck on one topic...move on and focus on your weakest subject. You'll get in don't worry. If I can do it, so can you!!

ibreezeby - I did not have to take the A&P section. If I were you, I would study the HESI study guide (3rd edition). that was my main study source. I thought I did well for my first time taking the exam and like I said, that was what I studied from.
