My school is offering students to take the HESI practice exam. To my understanding, this is like a mock-NCLEX exam with 160 or so questions and it will give you detailed results of what topics you're the weakest or strongest. It's about $80.
My concern is should I take the HESI without preparing for it? I guess just to get a general idea of how much studying has benefited me... even tho I've got butt loads of free practice exams already. (Kaplan, PrepU, Mosby, NCLEX apps with 500+ Q)
Another concern is, if I don't get the minimum 800 score, how long should I take reviewing the areas I'm weak in? Today is Feb 19, I was planning on taking my RN Boards Feb 27. Is a week enough to review the areas from the HESI practice exam?
Did anyone else take it? How did you feel when you got your results?
