Math on LVN placement test


Mar 20, '09I 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 prealgebra 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!

Mar 20, '09I 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 LPNtoRN program last summer. It's math portion was comprised of fractions, decimals (lots of them), percentages, and a handful of elementary algebra problems. 
Mar 20, '09COOL 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) 
Mar 23, '09are you talking about the COMPASS test?
I'm getting ready to take the compass test on thursday and i was wondering the same thing......i'm nervous that i wont pass it...:chuckle 
Mar 23, '09i don't know the name of it. My friend is taking it tomorrow I'll post back . So far I heard it is decimals, fractions, geometry, prealgebra ... I've been going
to Math.com to do practice test and get ready for mine which is next week 
Mar 23, '09I 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.

Mar 25, '09Incase 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!!!!
