Is The Entire NET Multiple Choice?!

  1. I know the math and science sections are, but I was wondering if the testtaking, stress, etc. tests were as well. Thanks!!

    Yes, I'd like to know as well. Anyone whose taken it before, please tell me what's goin on with this. I'm so worried about it. Can you give examples of questions or anything? What was the most challenging part? How many people usually pass?

    I took the NET last week, it was all multiple choice. Test taking, stress, etc, was an 'agree' or 'disagree' format.

    Batman, check out this website. I wished that I had known about it before I took the NET, because the study guide is nothing compared to the test. Not to worry you, it is just that the reading section is a lot different.

    This site has practice problems just like the NET uses. It is all multiple choice and agree/disagree. The math section is just basic math. Adding, subtracting, multiply, division, percentages, fractions and a few BASIC, easy algebra problems.

    The reading seems to be the toughest section, at least at our school. Even though they say it is basic reading comprehension, the 1st test we had to take was a science reading which most people failed (or didn't get the required 60% passing.) Even after they changed it to a newer version and took out the science reading, it was still a more challenging reading than say the TEAS or Accuplacer. I think having it timed it what throws off most people. It is just basic reading though.

    Good luck on it~

    Thank you!! I am going to do the Reading Tests on it. Was it 30 minutes for 30 questions on the reading comp section?!

    I am more nervous about the reading than the math. I have to take the NLN for another school and compared to that the NET math is a piece of cake. lol

    The Reading was a killer for me. I read on here that people had trouble with it but I thought "Nah, not me." Well, boy it was hard! I didn't finish and I am not sure if I answered any of them correct. :lol

    The school that I took the NET at doesnt even send out our scores! They said that we will know if we get an acceptance or decline letter in the mail f we passed or not.

    That's just rude! LOL

    Ooh, that is rude! We get a printout right after we are finished so we know right away how we did.

    Batman, the reading section is 30 questions in 30 minutes. I read fast, so I never went over my allotted time, but I know a lot of people who did. It really messed them up having gone over. I was really nervous about the math, but I aced it no problem. The reading is what I am best at, and the 1st time I barely passed it. This last time I did much better, but still not good enough imao! I made a 92%, so it defitely is passable. Just go in relaxed, and read FAST, but accurately! You will also take a reading speed test, so do your best on that, too!

    Best if luck~

    Thanks again!! Did you take the computer or paper version?! Mine is paper which I have heard is better in that you can review the reading section easier. I need all the help I can get.

    The passages in the book to practice on are short so I am hoping that is true of the real test as well. lol

    92% is great!! Congrats!!

    Thank you Batman. I had to take it 2 different times since the school changed versions. I definitely liked my 2 scores better! I took it on the computer both times. I have heard the paper version is better, but we were able to use paper and calculators, although to me, the calculator was slower to use. The only bad thing about the paper version is that you don't get your scores right away. I believe that it takes about 2 weeks to get it back.

    I was told I would need to wait 2 weeks for my scores. I don't like the computer for the reading section in particular as it is more time consuming to go up and down. That would make me even more anxious. lol

    I will take your 92% any day of the week and twice on Sundays. lol

    I took the NET this morning. I read a few posts on here and became discouraged, due to the comments made about the reading section. I studied the ERI and have to say that the reading portion of the test was easier than in the study guide. Needless to say, I passed the NET with flying numbers. The best advice I can give, is to brush up on math, and get an idea of what will be on the test so there are no surprises. I was worried about the reading since everyone stated that most fail the first time around. It is all nerves! You have to stay calm and focus on the test. I was so nervous at first, I couldn't even type my birthday in the darn computer!! I was able to take a few deep breaths and regained focus.
    It IS as easy as it looks, it's just a matter of how well you can deal with the stress.
