i just wanted to give you all some feedback on my experience taking the hesi for the 2nd time today. my school only requires the math and reading (vocab, grammar
, comprehension) sections.
the first time i took it was last year and i used the hesi study guide edition 2. i scored an overall 88% because although i did very good in english, i got a 79% in the math section.
this 2nd time around i purchased the hesi study guide edition 3 (newest one). i basically focused most of my efforts on the math sections since i scored so low last time. i did brush up on the vocabulary and grammar rules because i noticed that the 3rd edition study guide was different than the 2nd edition i used last year.
today i scored an overall 92% which i am very happy about.
i got a 93 in the math section so that really bumped me up but i wanted to let you guys know that the reading sections were much harder than last year. i am naturally very good in english and the comprehension and vocab section was pretty challenging. i scored lower in the reading sections this time around which i was very surprised about.
i urge any of you taking it soon to make sure that you understand all the grammatical rules and how to answer the " what statement can you imply by reading this passage?" they had a few of those questions in the comprehension section. review the vocabulary! specifically, the harder words because i noticed most of those on the test.
hope this helps someone out there! :heartbeat
