Hey, Ya'll! (I used to hate, hate, HATE that word!! (I live in SoCal) I took Latin my senior year in HS and when conjugating, my teacher always had us say ya'll for 2nd person plural. It also grew on me when Maci from Teen Mom says it) ^^I've got an ADD problem lol I'm not necessarily new here, but this is my first post. I took the HESI A2 exam for the first time yesterday, and passed with a 92.5% average. I finished in 2 hours and 40 minutes, but you're given up to 4 hours.
The exam consisted of Math, Reading Comprehension, Grammar, and Vocabulary with 55 questions per section. The nursing school I am going to attend gave me the HESI Admission Assessment Exam Review 3rd Edition to aid in my studying. You're allowed to complete the sections in any order you want. There wasn't a timer on the screen, but there was a clock in the room. I wore a watch just in case.
Math: 94% 52/55 Basic, basic math. It's the kind of math that's actually fun because it's so easy (believe me, I grew up hating math). I made the dumb mistake of forgetting to round when I got my answer, Don't forget to round when you have to produce your own answer!! I became a master of metric conversions when studying, but mainly because my brother (he's in rocket science lol) showed me a really easy conversion formula. You're also given a basic virtual calculator to use.
Reading Comp: 90% 50/55Short articles made it easy. The questions were straightforward. The study guide booklet didn't help. For the most part, the answers are right on front of you. The part where I missed points was in the "understanding."
Grammar: 98% 54/55 I'm a grammar nazi lol. Even so, the questions seemed overly easy,
Topics from study guide in exam? Other than 1 DO question, none. I'd say if English is your native language, there's no reason to do poorly here. Vocabulary: 88% 48/55The part that got me was when I didn't know the definition of a word because there weren't distinctive prefixes and suffixes and there wasn't a sentence to figure out the meaning through context.
That's it! If anyone has any questions, I'd be more than happy to answer those!!:]
