    Can anyone give advice on the Grammar section of the Hesi. I understand most of the vocab in the book is not on the test so I have studied quizlet as well as the book and feel ok with that. I am good with reading and with all the tips on math I know what to prepare for. But no one has really commented on the Grammar. I would appreciate the advice!

    Hi there! Thanks for the post on your opinion on the HESI. I know this is pretty old, but do you remember exactly what kind of questions they focused on in the math portion? I do have the HESI Admission Assessment book and I have been studying a ton in the math portion. ( As math is my weakest subject as well). I take it tomorrow morning and I was wondering if there was any last minute tips you could offer!
    Thanks!

    I have the same exact book. The Physics part at the end seems really hard. I read everything and I'm going to start practicing now. I was wondering if there is any Physics on the test and what should I expect for that section. Any help would be awesome! Please help!

    The McGraw Hill nursing pre-entrance exam study guide is good and it covers PAX, HESI, and other tests. Truthfully, I found all of those tests a lot alike.

    Grammar and English and reading comprehension are about the same on all those pre-entrance tests. I recommend using a GED English review book if you have problems.

    Same for math: Pretty much the same, algebra, ratios, solving for unknowns. It's good to know how to do without a calculator because some nursing schools are going to make you do it that way. GED math review book

    I used Cliff Notes general biology book as well, since I had never taken general biology except in 9th grade in high school.

    I took college A&P and microbiology before taking the nursing school exams.

    Back in 2009 when I was applying to schools, the HESI A2 could be customized by each school. You had to take it at each RN school or college, and it was never exactly the same test. The PAX is a national test. I took the PAX just to have a score on file that I could use nationally.
