PASSING NLN pre- exam for LPN

  1. 1
    Hi Everyone,

    I have recently signed up for the NLN pre- examination for LPN. I got this practice book and on the test. I get about 5-8 wrong within in each category (math, science, reading, etc.).
    Each category has 40 questions. Is that good or do I need to studying harder? Also my GPA is a 3.3 with 3 classes so far.

    The questions on the test are similar to the questions in the practice book. I missed more than 5-8 questions per section on the actual test and still scored in the 99th percentile. You'll do fine.

    I used the National League for Nursing Review Guide for LPN/LVN Pre-Entrance Exam. That was my frame of reference for saying the questions in the practice book are like the questions on the actual test. Your book covers the PAX-PN so like I said earlier, you'll do fine.

    This is awesome news...I've been studying it on and off for the last week. I take the PAX-PN test in 8 days. I will be living and breathing this study guide and CD rom practice tests.

    Thanks for sharing StrawberryEssence81!

    I also used the NLN testing study book and worried myself sick about the test. It was hard at times, especially the physics and the genetic questions. However it will not be as bad as you think, good luck on it take a deep breath and get a full night of sleep the night before. By already getting that study book and looking it over you already have a leg up. When I went to take my test 80% of the people in the room never looked over anything before and I did not see them during my orientation day.

    Ok! I'm worried cuz I ran out of time on the Reading section and scored in the 90th percentile for the Math. My school do not take the scores for the Science. I am too embarrassed to put my Reading score on here.
