    Does anybody know if anyone has gotten an acceptance letter for this fall Sep. 2010?

    Glady I think u should still go for it! U never know what will happen. Some people may not pass the exam, others may not have the deposit or fail the drug test. I say do it, it'll kill u later on to wonder if u could have made it in or not!

    As far as results, I just took my exam last week Tuesday and we were told to expect our results "well past April" (whatever that means...LOL). I guess it takes about a month n a half....so those who were the first to test should be getting their results anyday now! After that I think they send u for an interview (not sure if they still interview) and then physical (drug test). Once you've done all that, including the Letters of Reference as well as the $2,000 deposit, u'll receive a letter stating if u were accepted or not. Good luck to u. Pray for me and I'll be praying for u too. VEEB FALL 2010 HERE WE COME (hopefully)! Haha.

    you are correct on the reading, and the key to timing is don't read the passage only answer the questions, so skim the answers and look for them in the passage. the math has fractions, integers, decimals, percents, mixed numbers as well as i can remember.

    [font=book antiqua]hi i am new here and will be taking my veeb test next week. does the reading consist of reading passages and then answering questions about what you have read? does the math have story problems? i heard it has decimals and percentages. i am trying to study and feeling overwhelmed because i am not sure of how much i need to brush up on

    some people don't pass the test, some people get excepted and then don't enroll, some people enroll and within the first two weeks realize they can't do it, so there are a lot of factors to include why they test so many people.

    I bought a GED book from barnes and nobles. Either one you choose is good enough. I bought the kaplan one. It has been helping me. Hope this helps. I just called the school to see if they are still taking applications, and they still are. I dont understand how they keep testing. I'm sure there has been over 200 students already that have tested. Does this mean that if we pass the test, do we go on a waiting list. Just wonder how they come up with the 200 students. I really dont want to waste $200 for a test that I am not guaranteed to get in even if I pass!!!!

    That is something you will have to decide, but just to let you know it will not be a waste of 200.00. This is what you want to do so go for it. You will never know if you would have gotten excepted if you don't take the entrance exam. I am a current student and we all had to face the fact that we might not get excepted, but we wanted it so we had to pay the money, and look I'm in. So don't think like that you are possibly on your way to becoming a nurse!

    So then I guess it's not even really worth taking the pre-entrance exam, because they probably won't even bother accepting us. I wonder what I should do. I don't want to waste $200 so they can tell me I'm not even getting in.....EVEN IF I PASS!!!!!!

    [font=book antiqua]how hard are the passages? i have been "skimming" answers in passages and timing myself, and doing poorly. because i am not reading the passage, i don't get the jist of what i am reading to answer some of the questions correctly. i hope the answers to the passages are easier than the ones i have been studying. my test is tuesday the 16th, i am ok with being put on a waiting list...at least i know i got in. i am worried that i will pay the $200 and not pass! how did i get a high school diploma and college degree but i can't get a ged???? i am sooooo stressed about this test

    [font=book antiqua]and then there is the math...

    [font=book antiqua]i know a former veeb student that took her pre-entrance exam late in the game, like march or april (a couple of years ago) and she still got in. i definitley think it's worth it to take it. you sound prepared, so you will hopefully pass. from reading these threads, i have read that the woman who grades the test is a month behind. i wonder why somebody can't help her? having to wait more than a couple of weeks is too long!

    Thank you sweetness07, praise2u, and littlenursegoal. I really appreciate your encouragement. It really has totally changed my mindset thanks to you guys. You guys are defintely right. It's not that I am a negative person, it's just that I can't fight the number game.....(1,000 applicants vs. 200 acceptances)....you know what I mean. But I have still continued to study and I do plan on still taking the test because I want to be a nurse so badly. It has been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember. It never crossed my mind that there are people who might back out of the program , or that they can't come up with the money. I guess since I know I can come up with the money and I would defintely NOT back out, I figured everyone else is thinking the same way. Thank you guys so much for giving me hope. I wish you guys all the best and I hope that you guys get accepted......hey you never know....maybe we will all be future classmates.....Cant wait to see!!!!! Good luck guys!!!!!

    $200 50 (# of people tested per day) = roughly about ONLY $10,000 PER DAY!!! LOL If I were them, I'll still be testing too! Hahaha. Testing=easy money-maker.
    One thing you will learn is that VEEB is very money hungry! Just one of the many things we have to deal with at VEEB, but the bottom line is we deal with it because we want our Nursing Degree's. They probably know this, and take advantage of us, but oh well.

    Good luck everyone, I hope you get your (POSITIVE) results fast! They said the same thing last year ( I am a current student) about "being a month behind in grading". The bottom line is you will get your results when you get them. It seems like there is no rhyme or reason to the way they do things. All that being said, I will say that VEEB is an EXCELLENT school, I have learned SO MUCH in such a short period of time. Its a full time job, but its well worth it. If you look about 50 pages back in this thread you will see all of us from last year anxiously awaiting our results, It might make you feel better to see we all went thru what youre going through now!

    I was told that I should expect to be at the school for 5 hours during the testing day. Can you share with those who have not taken the test what the day is like. How long is the actual test and if it doesn't take up that entire 5 hours she quoted me what happens during the rest of the time we are there? Also I see people have noted that the time allowances are tough. How long approx were the math and english parts each? Thanks

    when is ur test date? It depends, most likely not the whole 5 hours! Ur expected to be the by 8:30am for registration, and I'll say we started the test like 9:30a/10am and were out by like 12:30pm. Good luck and let us know how it turned out! :-)
