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
