    Sorry I have a correction. I thought I had only missed 3 on the science, but I missed 4. Really pay attention when answering all the questions. It seems like they average about 5 points each, so that is a lot.

    I just recieved my test date of May 23rd and am SUPER nervous. It is do or die at this university...if you do not pass this test it does not matter how high your GPA is. I just bought the study guide and am wondering how many months in advance did most start studying. I am really worried about the math...although I hear its very basic I get math anxiety whenever I take a test and totally blank out. Any suggestions?

    Just study what has been posted here as far as what the math is on the exam. The Kaplan book was not helpful. If you study your A & P and brush up on fractions etc..you should do well. There is way too much information in the Kaplan study guide that isn't even on the exam. I bought my Kaplan study guide in October and started looking through it. I really started studying in January for my exam that was in February. You will waste alot less time if you just go over A&P and math instead. I would say that if you did that and give yourself 3-4 weeks to study those subjects that should be good.

    I appreciate this thread it has been very informative, I wish there was a place where you could get online practice or software to practice for the exam on your computer, especially in the format the actual tests will be.

    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. the math was nothing like the kaplan study guide....fractions/decimal/percentages and about 6 or 7 conversions/calc dosage problems..reading/comp portion was relatively easy...and you can take a break when you feel ready, i would strongly suggest taking your break after the second test, before the writing portion! this section; the writing section; was redundant with the type of questions and i was getting frustrated. at this point i wished i had taken the break before starting this section. the science section:-put it this way ---all and i mean i used many-nursing entrance exam study guides along with the kaplan, plus studied extensively from my class a&p book did not prepare me for the questions/or i should say the type of questions that were on the test. some of them were no brainers if you studied or paid attention in your a&p class, while many of theother questions were-----i don't even know how to describe them----you knew it or didn't/or had to guess. 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'mkeeping 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!
    bon please contact me i dont know how to reply in a manner that you will get it ibelieve13

    So I took this horrific test yesterday and got a 78. I wont know if it's good enough until July. All I have to say is WOW! I think I did my best, but I'm not happy with my score. I have been studying for two months and I was shocked at the physiology portion of the test. Science was mostly what I studied and I got 12/20 right which gave me a 60 in that section. I knew every part of every system and how it worked. These questions were so broad I was shocked. The Reading and math were fine but the writing portion was very confusing. My advice to anyone who has to take it, is to study to the best that you can and beleive in yourself. There's only so much you can do. No, I'm not happy with my score and it's going to drive me crazy to have to wait to know if I got in. But I did the best that I can do and that's the only thing that matters. Thanks EVERYONE for the advice it really was a big help.

    Just a note to all those who have taken the Kaplan Nursing Entrance Test and are waiting for your letters in regards to acceptance into the Nursing Program of your choice......always have a plan B.....when I heard others talk of this....I was thinking, plan B.....what? I've committed to this particular institution; academically and financially..plan B...NOT IN THE PLAN. Unfortunately for me the first time applying my total over-all points were not enough......and so I wait until the next round.....the second time around after taking the Kaplan, and re-applying to the ADN program I was #52 out of 45 accepted into the program, the only difference was I had a PLAN B. I am starting Nursing school (ADN) program at a college where I feel at home, and am ecstatic and blessed to begin in August of this year.: So you can sit around and WAIT and HOPE while doing your best to get in, or sit around and WAIT and HOPE while doing your best with a PLAN B included! What is meant to be (as the saying goes) might not be the blessing that you had your sights set upon.... in reality... IS THE BLESSING you didn't even see! For me, plan B was just what I was praying for! (I did not know this at that time) GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE, and always have a PLAN B

    Plan B is fine but let's talk numbers what were your numbers if you had a 3.97 and 80 off Kaplan no retake, all points for no transfers beyond 8 credits, I got almost 26 points going? The last cycle the cut off was 25.4 I was told by the dean you have a good chance at getting in. So where did you fall?
