hello again everyone!

i am scheduled to retake the hesi entry exam a2 on tuesday in order to be considered for admission into an accredited rn nursing program. i failed the math portion in august, so i have to retake the entire test again. math, english, reading, &

grammar.

i know adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing of fractions & decimals, converting decimals to fractions, converting fractions to decimals, ratios, percentages will all be on the test based on the test i took in august.

**i have a question about the ratio equations on the hesi. the actual equation will be set up something like this 100:2 :: 60:x **__does the :: mean __=? for example would it be the same as 100:2=60:x? i can't find any info online about a ratio being presented this way with the ::!
i have a huge

** concern** about the

__units of measurement__ part of the hesi test. the test i took in august has reading problems with wanting measuring conversations in it. is that usually how

__all the hesi test versions__ have the units of measurements listed on the

hesi a2 test?

every study guide or flash card i've seen online has all the standard measurements & metric system conversations listed like 1 kilometer = 1,000 meters.

**are there some versions of the hesi a2 test that have math problems like 1 kilometer= ____ meters ? **
**basically will i have to know how to set up a word problem along with knowing the units of measures?** **mostly conversions between oz/pints/quarts/gallons- 30ml = 1 oz, and 2.2 kilos/lb sound about right?**
i think my last hesi exam had like 3 units of measurement reading problems. is that the

**average number of unit of measurement questions on the hesi exam**?

**or sometimes will there be more?**
the reading problems and units of measurement are the parts i'm scared about.
