TOOK HESI IN MAY, GOT 99.99 PERCENTILE. BY ALL MEANS GET THE HESI REVIEW BOOK AND CDs STUDYING NCLEX REVIEW BOOKS WILL NOT HELP YOU. MY FRIEND HAS FAILED HESI 3 TIMES BECAUSE SHE JUST WON'T LISTEN. DO NOT MAKE THAT MISTAKE HESI IS MORE KNOWLEDGE BASED VS NCLEX MORE APPLICATION. THE HESI BOOK HAS "HESI HINTS" IN THEM" LITTLE SHADED BOXES OF INFO, KNOW THEM WELL AND YOU WILL SUCCEED. BELEIVE ME HESI IS NOT LIKE ANY OTHER TEST YOU WILL TAKE. I BOUGHT THE HESI REVIEW BOOK WHILE IN THE NURSING PROGRAM AND IT WAS AMAZINGLY HELPFUL IN PASSING MY EXAMS I RECOMMEND PURCHASING THAT BOOK NOW AND USING IT ALONG WITH YOUR OTHER MATERIALS.
HOPE THIS HELPS
The only place I could find to purchase the book and cd rom for Hesi, is on their website as posted above. It is a worthwhile investment if you have to take the test.
The name of the book is HESI NCLEX RN REVIEW www.myhesitest.com
I took my exit HESI in Oct. of this year. I made a 99.99 on it. I also made a 99.99 on Peds HESI, psych, and med/surg, all without any help. I made a 94.97 on my OB HESI. I did study Psychiatric Nursing made incredibly easy d/t the large psych content on all of my HESI's. I have studied throughout nursing school with the NSNA nclex review 4th edition. It has been great, has a mini-review of each area. So, I say it really depends on you. If you are a good student with good grades, you probably don't need the HESI review if you do NCLEX style questions. Just do your best.
