All About the NET
- 62 Published Apr 16, '08since there has been a few people in need of NET help, i will break it down to you guys!
people... you are native americans, it makes it easy for you to do way better that i did... once again HERE IT GOES HOW TO REALLY DO GREAT ON YOUR NET TEST.
EASY NET in 6 STEPS
1 you have to have some time to study, allow your self about 2 hours a day (i was able to learn all the subjects and study on my own and at work!!!) you have to sacrifice whatever it is but make it 2-3 holy hours per day no matter what! (for about 10 days)
2 go to www.testprepreview.com and download and print their NET nurse entrance test, youll find it on the left hand side. then once you have it, you print it about 10 copies and staple 10 sets, they will be your everyday practice sets. now that you have done that, you will go to http://www.midland.edu/~hsd/pdf/8-NET_Test.pdf and do the exact same thing, make 10 copies and staple the sets, this is another GREAT EXCELENT exam and both of them are lets say 99% of what you need to know to score at least a 85 on your net and I GUARANTEE IT!.
3your studying schedule, first of all you are going to take the first test either one you choose, and you will solve it, take your time, try to understand, come online and post (lets ask for a sticky on this only for the net thread Huh? please all nurses!!!) well you will answer all the questions you can, and do not check yet to verify your answers, once you finish all the questions you know, you will then verify those answers, then whatever you could not solve, just come here and post the number of the questions and whether it is from plato or test prep, that i will step by step answer it and assist you.
you will then get the next NET and solve it also...and again, once you have doubts post them here and i will help you.
After doing that for 5 days, you on the weekend will go to discovery.com or any other science website and you will read about 3-5 articles, just so you can update, improve, sharpen your infra-reading skills, do dot skip this step, do that on the weekend so you can take a break on your studies and prepare for the second week.
On your second week you will start timing your self, you will give your self 1 minute per question, so total it like 60 minutes for 60 math questions! and time your self on the english part also, wich actually is the most time consuming questions.
4 it is getting close for you to take the NET and you have about 3-4 days prior to it, so now you will do this technique that i call compilation, you will add all the math questions from both tests and you will solve them back to back, as many as you can, when you need a break take a quick one, but make it your goal to solve all of them!!! and by this time you should be getting at least 90% of them right!! once you are done with that, you will just answer 15 random questions on the english part.
On the day after you will invert, you will then solve all the english part, (again, as many as you can with no breaks, then once you need one do not hesitate but do not loose your "studystamina" wich i call concentration) done with that, you shall then answer 15 math question, try getting those ones that gives you a hard time and you often miss them, please try timing your self be generous, give your self 19 minutes for them.
Again repeat the step 4 on the next day.
5 It is now 2 days before the test, and at this day you will not study, you will not drill, you will only make sure, that you have no doubts and all your math and words are sharp, posting doubts, and making sure you are up to par!
On the day before your test you will do this, you will give yourself 1 hour on the clock to solve 30 math questions, and 30 english in the morning, and repeat that at night, just to wrap it all up.
6 it is NET DAY, today you will not freak out because you are prepared, you solved your problems, you found the meaning and main ideas of the paregraphs, and you are doing just awesome not it is time to show it to your self.
Taking the NET:
you might start with a essay sometimes that is not required, if not you will go to MATH, you are going to start solving your test, 100% concentration right here, if you stumble uppon a question that you might be having a tiny bit of trouble with it just skip it, dont guess, and go to the next one, so by the end of the test you saved your self plenty of time to solve those 5-6 questions that you were having trouble with, now just press the button on the computer (of course if it is computer based version) "uncheck questions only" and the system will only display the ones you left for last, doing so you will save time on the easy ones, and have actualy more then 1 minute per remaining questions.
Now when it comes to the english portion i recomend you glance-read the paragraf, take a peek at the question and then you can go back to the paragraph and choose the right answer, they are not long paragraphs, often 200 hundred words...
AND NOW YOU ARE DONE
just follow this and you will be great and at least score a minimum of a composite 85.... i got a 92!
and that will not guarantee your admission... but it will have a great weight and consideration
Please moderators, can you make this a sticky note?

Thanks again for the information!
dbksgrl (Wendy)1Apr 19, '08 by PlagueisQuote from gemberlyFirst, the advice Csantos has provided is great. Wish I'd had it before I took the NET earlier this year. Anyway, I just wanted to say that my version of the NET test that I took earlier this year (February) did not have a science portion. Also, the NET prep book I got stated that there is no science portion on the NET.Our version of the NET also has science questions. Any ideas what might be on the test??
Thank in advance.
However, I had a science section on the TEAS test which I took earlier this month. In fact, I never heard of a science section for the NET, so I'm wondering where a science section for that test came from.
