    Hi. I take V-4 next week. I've been studying the Saunders NCLEX and had the evolve live review. I ordered the HESI review for NCLEX book and should receive by tomorrow. Does anyone know if the information from hesistudy.com is valuable? I can't afford to waste $97! This HESI is incredibly stressful, school should not be allowed to use outside vendor tests to dictate our graduation! Our passing each and every class and completing and earning every required credit for our degree should determine our graduation. The NCLEX will say if we get our license!!! How can this HESI ruin so many lives?!

    i took version 6 last week Friday and was my second attempt; To the glory of God i got 968. I studied the Hesi textbook and i paid attention to the hints the boxes. The calculation boosts the point. Good luck everyone

    If I am not mistaken I had version 2V or something like that. 160 questions. Got 928 on my 1st try. I had almost 1 month of holidays, so I just have been reading Saunders book latest edition, NCSBN website and NCLEX 4000 everyday. Yes, pay attention to those "hints".

    I agree...The HESI is a horrible exam and should be banned! It held me back by seven months! I didn't do the hesistudy.com or whatever they call it, and I wouldn't waste my money on it either. What's the passing score for your school's HESi?

    Well I've done Hurst and I've been studying with the hesi book and questions. I've just signed up for Kaplan review now. I think I need help with test-taking strategies, so hopefully Kaplan will be beneficial for that. It's been 8 months now since I've been in school. This is my last chance so if I don't make it this time around, I will change careers.

    I tried the Hesistudy.com but it didn't help me at all; however, some people said it helped, personally I will advise you not to buy it. Pray and and review the hesi text book...good luck

    I am a relatively new RN and had to pass the HESI in order to graduate.....the kicker was that the policy was implemented just before we graduated. No prepping or anything. Most of the time, as I understand it, they have you taking these tests periodically all the way through the program. We were required to get 900. If not, we had to take it again....after paying a generous fee for a "refresher course". If you didn't pass that time, I believe you were out the door, with the school refusing to release your info to the state so you can sit for the NCLEX. Thankfully I passed with 903 on the first try. I took the NCLEX a couple months later and passed on the first attempt...75 questions in just over an hour.

    I totally agree that a third party should have no bearing on graduation rate. I heard that this policy is used as a tool by the school to make the schools look better as a result of higher NCLEX pass rates.

    It's nice to know that there are educators on the side of the students on this issue. I didn't get much of that from the faculty at my school
