Hello, I am not sure if you have taken your test yet but I took the examination in MN last year. It is not as bad as I thought it was going to be and the examiners were really nice.
Study the Home Health Aide stuff for the written exam, there was a lot of weird questions about it on there.
For the skills, I wore a simple scrub outfit. I brought my own transfer belt but I belive they had all supplies (transfer belts, gloves, linens, basins, etc) on site. I walked in and picked skills from a hat. The first skill is always hand-washing. After that you just say something like, "washes hands" or pretend to wash you hands before each skill, just like you would pretend to pull the privacy curtain. I practiced all of my skills many times with friends and family members and did them all by the book. I.e. Enter the room, greet resident, check name braclet, explain what I am going to do, wash my hands, gather supplies, etc etc
At work I do not wear gloves when feeding a resident but I'm not sure, you might want to double-check
