Math on LVN placement test

  1. I'm taking my LVN entrance test next week. Does anyone know how the math was on the test. Does it go up
    to Algebra or is it Pre-Algebra. Someone told me it was 9th grade which I guess is Algebra. But someone said
    it is elementry math.? Thanks!

    I took an entrance exam today for an LPN program. They claim you needed to be on a "12th grade level" with your math score; it's been awhile since I've taken algebra or pre-algebra so I don't know where it would fall but it was alot of percentages, fractions, decimals. I scored a 93 on the math and I've always been HORRIBLE at it!

    I took the TABE (Test of Adult Basic Education) for entrance into an LVN program back in 2004. The exam's math portion had fractions, decimals, percentages, and other basic skills.

    I took the NET test for entrance into an LPN-to-RN program last summer. It's math portion was comprised of fractions, decimals (lots of them), percentages, and a handful of elementary algebra problems.

    COOL THANKS FOR YOUR INPUT. I'm Doing my RN pre -reqs and applying to to
    LVN program just in case I get in. because the RN's here in SO CAL have waiting
    lists. I think LVN/RN admit is not as long. (but still need pre reqs)

    I took the COMPASS test for math and reading to get into the LPN program, and I was allowed to use a calculator. That made it easier.

    Incase it is the tabe test, here is a link that has practice tests for it. Thats what I used to help prepare for mine. I also looked up videos on youtube, to help refresh how to do some of the simple math I haven't done it a while. Good Luck!!!!
