    Hi, I bought the HESI Evolve Reach Exam Review 2nd Edition and study everything in there except for the Physics section because the college was not requiring it. Also review your A&P book, study guide, notes...because this Evolve study guide does not elaborate much in this section. Make sure to study the vocabulary in this book and make sure you check the website Quizlet.com for more practice. I'm sure the study guide you have already may be helpful too. Best of luck to you! Always think positive.

    Do you know what subjects you are being tested on? I would use the HESI evolve study guide...it is perfect for math, grammar, and vocab. The science sections is not adequate...I would use the TEAS V for science or use A&P and chemistry for dummies...

    Let us know if you need assistance. I took the test and did pretty well.

    Good luck!

    Don't be nervous!! It was way easier than I was expecting. Just review the book and do the practice problems and you will do fine. The Your scores for portions that you have not taken classes for will be weighted differently than those you have taken the course work for. You get your score after you finish each section, if I remember correctly which was a relief for me.

    Good luck!!

    I would suggest buying the actual HESI book and going through those questions. Some of the questions that were on my exam were in the book so I knew the answers right away. For me, Anatomy and Physiology was on there too, but no physics.

    I take my HESI A2 Thursday...I haven't bought any books but I've been using several websites, some of which are geared specifically for HESI prep. Test-Guide.com - Free practice tests and study guides seems to be the most helpful so far, especially their flash cards and practice tests. I haven't had any applicable science classes in 8 years so i need a major refresher...but I think it's all coming back pretty well. I really hope my test will give me my score right away, I think the waiting would be the worst part.

    I just took the HESI A2 yesterday. I used the "HESI Admission Assessment Exam Review Ed. 3" by Elsevier. Found it at the college bookstore. It did a fine job at preparing me. It is just a guideline, though, you need to have a wider breadth of knowledge than just the vocab that they have listed.

    The math section had a lot of ratio questions, I was surprised.

    Each school has different requirements for testing. Check your school for what subjects they will be testing for. I'm applying to UTA and they just required Math, Grammar, Vocab and general knowledge.

    Each section has 55 questions.
