    I took the Hesi A2 this past Thursday morning. The math was very basic: addition, subtraction, might have had 2 questions of each, Fractions and conversions where the majority of it. Like how many oz are in 2/5 gallons of milk or how many liters are in 6,250 ML. There were also a handful of ratios. If I am not mistaken there are only 25 math problems. The vocabulary is not medical related they are everyday terms. Basic Grammar and reading comprehension ( the essays were short and informative). I found on the a&p I had questions like what Hormone does the posterior pituatray gland secrete and the anwser is oxytocin. it asks whats the master gland.. Pit gland there were questions about what the hypothalamus regulated. I would look at each gland and make note of the hormones the secrete and what body functions they affect. Bio had mostly Cell questions, like Phospholipids one questions was on gamate reproduction thur meiosis. its pretty basic information. Chemistry was fairly basic also. I didn't have to do any mole conversions it was basically like why does gas disolve a styrofoam cup and things of that nature. My school requires a 70% to get in I earned a 89.71 and asked if I should take it over to help my chances of admissions. The nursing advior said that was a hgih score for our school where the average is a 76%. We all stress out about any tests that can come in way of our dreams, however this was very basic information That I was provided in High school umm 12 years ago ( telling my age :0) ) if you feel comfortable in ur basic skills I would say you have no problem of passing this exam. Best wishes!!! and if your reading this you will know where my lowest score was...Grammar ha! so sad but true :0)
