hi guys... i new to the board and i have to take the tabe test to get into the lpn program that i interested in. if there's anyone who has taken this test or have any information on this test would advise me on what study guide to get or how hard is this test. i was told in order to pass you have to be at a 6 grade learning level. currently i am doing my require classes for the rn program; but i decided to going into lpn and then go back for my rn. i am just kind of nervous about taking this test. i am schedule to take the practice test on april 24th, 2008. any information would greatly be appreciated.
Hello, I am new as well I am a PN graduate and i have attempted one try on the NCLEX-PN and did not pass, I hope to retake soon. As far as the TABE I needed a 11'th grade level in the reading, math and English. Not to discourage I took the test several times and had to use many stradegies upon becoming successful. The math was most difficult for me. They do have a TABE test prep book it's abot 14-15 dollars. I did not purchase it; and yes, a GED book will do just fine. I ended up getting a math tutor as well as switching my test site for atmosphere change, breaking down each test subject one by one and testing on them on different days , and lastley requesting the paper test booklets rather than taking the test on the computer. It was an adventure however I did it. The NET test was not so bad I passed it on the 1'rst attemp-glad because that test in my area is 27.00 evertime you take it. I did get through the PN program Dec. 07 I just have to fine a plan to get me ready to retake the NCLEX-PN again and pass -good luck in your nursing career.
