# Are there measurement conversions on HESI?

1. 0
I am studying the HESI exam guide for math. I plan to try to take the HESI soon, hopefully next week. In the exam guide there is a brief section of measurement conversions but no practice problems. Does that mean there aren't any on the test?

I am using HESI Admission Assessment Exam Review, Ed. 3 by Elsevier.

I am wondering if I should put in some time to study conversions or not?

Yes, know conversions. When I took mine there were a few problems, but it mostly consisted of fractions and ratios! I took the HESI a few months ago.

They're not difficult. Simply knowing the conversion formula suffices.

Well how do you normally convert?

If you know how to do what they show in the study guide you should be fine. That's the only thing I studied. I got maybe two conversion questions. The bulk of the questions were ratios and fractions when I took it. Oh, and some percentages too.

I had a few kitchen type conversions--I used the big G method.... Memory Tricks: Remembering How Many Cups in a Gallon | The Kitchn then just know how many oz are in 1 cup and you can go from there using that big G. Also know that 1 oz=30ml. The King Henry Died Monday Drinking Chocolate Milk, came in handy for me as well when I took the math portion of the Hesi.
