    I recently took the Kaplan exam. As a matter of fact, I took it on Oct. 29th. The study guide will prepare you for the exam with the exculsion of all the extra math they included. I must say I was very impressed at how easy the math section was. All fractions! That's it! The science is indeed the portion you want to study the most! Very, Very broad! There is no other way to prepare for the science other than, study to know each system like the back of your hand. Especially the hormones, heart and homeostasis...... The reading and writing is easy but tricky-So pay close attention! With that said, best of luck to you all. Score high!

    thanks to everyone who commented on this thread. i conquered the kaplan on oct 30th....and much of what everyone has written is a good assessment of the format of the test.
    you can take a break when you feel ready, i would strongly suggest taking your break after the second test, before the writing portion!
    overall i think the mystery of the test, especially because it is relatively new, is worse that the test itself! good luck to anyone who is taking the kaplan.....and i'm keeping my fingers crossed..hoping that my overall score in addition to my gpa/point system... will be sufficient to be accepted into the program for the spring of 2011......if you can see it, you can be it!

    i just took the kaplan test today. i agree with you on the writing part. it was very redundant and annoying. the math was definitely more basic than the kaplan guide,but the simplest things i forgot. i hope you did well. i hope i did well too. the nursing programs are just too competitive.

    Just remember to stay positive, and keep this "good" energy around you. Surround yourself with positive people and KNOW you did your best, and if you get the opprotunity to re-take, do better! Good Luck and I hope you get into the program. Yes it is competitive, but worth the wait! I'm praying I did well enough to make the cut! When you find out if your "IN" post here! I will as well! Remember, if you want to be it.....see it!

    I just took my kaplan last week at Baker Owosso. When we went in the room, our proctor told us that no one had scored in the 90's and only a few in the 80's so not to get discouraged! That was discouraging enough. I was so nervous. I had studied the whole week before but still didn't feel like I knew anything. I ended up getting an 85 which I was super happy with. Other people that took it that I talked to got in the 60's and 70's. So hopefully, it will be enough to get me in the nursing program this spring!!

    What study guide did you use that helped you get an 85 on your test?
