Hesi a2-did not pass the critical thinking part! help!

  1. 0
    Hello, my name is Josh and I recently took the HESI exam for University of Texas. I used the suggested Elsevier review and passed all the sections, AP, chemistry, math, bio, etc. The only section I did not pass was the critical thinking, I made a 730, minimum required is 750. My concern is that the critcal thinking was not on the review! I passed all section excpet that section because I did not study for it because it was not provided on the review. I am a college student that was not prepared for those prenursing questions. Was I supposed to obtain the review somewhere else?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I haven't taken the Hesi A2 yet but I've heard that the Fundamentals Success book was helpful for the critical thinking part. I bought the book, pretty much full of questions on different topics. It was a recommedned but not required book for first semester nursing courses.

    Fundamentals Success by Patricia M. Nugent and Barbara A. Vitale. I found it a little strange to have to answer questions about things that I haven't learned yet (still doing pre-req.s) but it really makes you think. What kind of critical thinking questions were on the Hesi A2?

    For my college we had to take the critical thinking test to show where we are now, and then at the end of the program we'll take it again to see if we've learned anything. The score didn't count towards entry points for the program.

    Yeah, have not seen anything online or in print on the critical thinking portion of the HESI. I'm kinda creeped out that I may have to enter taht poritons of the assessment blind.
