Khan Academy for free study

  1. Khan Academy is a free website with pretty good lessons on chemistry, A&P, math...
    I've been out of school for quite a while, never took chemistry, hardly took any sciences, so I was worried about having to take lower-level classes I don't need.
    I haven't enrolled into any nursing program yet, but I think what's on there might be helpful for nursing students.
    I've been going through their algebra assessment so I can test out having to take it before taking science classes. Khanacademy.org

    I love it. It is really helping me study math for my entrance exam. My admissions advisor told me about this site, but I forgot. Thanks for the reminder. I plan on letting my kids practice on it too. Thanks again.

    Khan academy is a great resource for basic review of certain topics. I actually direct the students I teach to Khan Academy if my explanations still go over their head and the books we used had too much detail for them to start off with.

    Yes i used Khan Academy when getting my GED. Saved me a lot of money and basically was able to pass all the tests on the first try. I do intend to use it during pre reqs too for nursing school.

    My statistics instructor directed us to use Khan Academy to prep for quizzes and as a tool for different ways of learning a concept. Very useful!

    Hey @nanillest when are you taking your HESI Exam?

    The math section can take quite a while since it has 50 questions. You will probably find about 2-3 questions that won't be multiple choice and you'll have to actually type in the answer.

    Here are the topics we focus when we tutor students for the HESI:
    Decimals
    Multiplying decimals
    Changing Decimals to Fractions
    Comparing decimals
    Fractions
    Ratios and proportions (number and word problems)
    Changing Fractions to Decimals
    Dividing Fractions
    Multiplying, dividing, adding, subtracting fractions
    Measurements
    Teaspoons to mL
    Tablespoons to mL
    Cups to Ounces
    Algebra
    Solving for X in ratio and proportion
    Using Percent Formula
    Solving equations for a variable

    At the bottom, you can sign up for a free HESI practice test. It doesn't hurt to get in more practice questions before the actual exam. Good luck and let us know how you did!!

    My school doesn't require the HESI. We were required to take the Kaplan Nursing Entrance Exam. I passed. I start class June 22. I'm getting nervous, but I am ready for this change.
