    The test isn't bad. Know your basic math, fractions, percentages, algebra. The reading was a piece of cake. The writing I didn't do well though I scored into honors English at MDC. My problem with that was that whole section was awful. The written pieces were sO poorly written it was hard to decipher what was "good" and what was "bad". The anatomy was easy. My problem was I studied my basic anatomy. Don't worry about that part. Study your physiology. They're gonna ask you questions about the functions not actual naming of the body. And it mostly focused on lungs, circulation, hardly any renal or brain. Thru asked about cellular fluids.

    Anyway, had I known that I would've done perfectly fine. However I got a 70. But I wasn't able to get the prep book and I have been in midterms. Sucks but I did what could do and I tried my best.

    I'm so glad I found this site. I'm taking the Kaplan exam in August and I'm stressed out. The program I want to get into only takes 10 students per semester . and you come out with a BSN. We have another program that takes 25 students per semester , but you come out with an Associates. I'm want to become a CRNA so I NEED a BSN. Orinally , they both had the HESSI A2 exam and I took it, but now the program I want to get into switched to the Kaplan exam. I got 84% overall in the HESSI. I got 84% in English and math section....100% in chemistry but dis horrible in A&P and biology... I got 69%. I bought the Kaplan book and I've been studuing it, but I haven't seen anybody on here post anything about Physics ....does it have any? Because I haven't taken any Physics classes....I'm pretty sure I got accepted into the oter program, but I REALLY want the BSN one. Like I mentioned before , they only take 10 students twice a year.....that's NOT alot!!... I have a 3.5 GPA, but I still haven't taken A&P II , I'm registered for it next semester. The deadline to apply is October 1st, i have to take the Kaplan in August , so that won't give me with a lot of opportunities to re-take it.....I've read allllll the posts on this forum.....but, any other advices would be appreciated...........is there any chemistry? it seems that that is my only strong subject for some reason.......Look foward for any advice. Thank U

    I'm almost 100 percent positive.....NO chemistry. All the previous posts are pretty accurate in the advice given to help you prepare for the Kaplan. One very important suggestion is to take breaks in between each test. Even if you just leave the room, do some deep breathing exercises and get a drink of water to help you re-focus. Good Luck! You WILL do great!

    Hi everyone, just wanted to let you know some information I found out from calling the dean. The letters will be sent out the first week of August. She wouldn't tell me the cut off, but she did say I was in good shape with my points (26.1). I asked her how good of a chance I had (because I have to give notice to my job) and she told me to give notice. So if any of you have points higher than a 26.1 you are probably in Good luck everyone!

    We were told we would begin receiving notification for fall 2010 entry sometime in August, but many began receiving their notifications as early as July 21st. I was pleasantly surprised when I received mine on July 21st--actually, I pushed it out of my mind thinking I wouldn't be hearing anything until August.

    Good luck to you all.

BUT I have no idea what the cut off will be this time, last round it was 25.4 Phyllis said I had a good shot after the Kaplan she also said she believes the cutoff will be higher this time she does not know how high, or not at the time she should now.

    I had 26.2 entrance points. I don't recall what the cut-off was when I took my entrance exam.

    Hopefully you will hear good news very soon.
