I suck at the vocab words and some of the math and oh soome science..lol. I'm so bummed. I will say it is a lil better then I expected...Got my scores back pretty fast...I got them yesterday so just under a week. I shreiked when I saw them in the mailbox.

    Thank you Caeiluna! Thinking I'll pick my Biology 130 book up again and start reading and brush up on some math, I can't seem to remember some of the questions that got me on the exam. I did notice some from the McDonald book was in there. Wish there was a way to know what ones you got wrong..lol. Thanks for the encouragement.

    Well i suck most terrible at math, and i found these two books called No Fear Math and Painless Fractions helped me a whole lot with understanding the basics. I still didn't do so terrific on the math section although i studied my butt off for it, but i think that if i didn't put all that time and energy into it i'd have done much worse.
    Just practise timeing yourself a lot, it will come in handy for the test and remember that although your practise test says 60 questions for Vocab/reading comp and Science and 40 for math, remember on the actual test its 80 questions each for Vocab/reading comp and 54 questions for math. A couple of people ran into some trouble with that and they were totally devestated. On the actual test, keep your eyes on the time, you come to something you don't know, KEEP IT MOVING, come back to it at the end. and NEVER EVER leave anything blank, put something even if you don't know it. Thats all ive got. Pretty much of summary of everyone's advice on this thread.

    Well, I did it. I went to the college and purchased my NLN RN pre-entrance Exam review guide. I'm going to start making flashcards next. I have found this the best way to study. I took a med terms class and the teacher required that we do this. I LOVE it. I can carry them with me when I'm out.

    I have 115 days, 7/28/07, until I take my test. If I'm not prepared by then, God help me I put a countdown thing on my homepage, that should keep me on my toes.

    This may be silly, but........... are you allowed calculators in the NLN??

    Thanks.

    Good Luck suesue, I took mine in March and got a 102 composite score, so I'm gonna try again in September...I'd like to get a better score. I know here in Nevada we weren't allowed calculators, just that scrap piece of paper, there was one lady that said she got a calculator..but it seemed to be a smaller town, I think..Think she was the only one taking it. That'd be nice if we could have a calculator..LOL. Think I need to move where she is from..LOL. Well good luck on studying and make sure you read up on the science part and learn your vocab words, cause the verbal is actually no Medical terms..Everyone I was telling about taking this exam that I know was like well you just get a medical dictionary, nope, I wish that was the case...Not that Much A&P in my test either...So just know your science and math...Good Luck!

    Koko, for my program they go on points, like if you scored over 115, u get 1 pt and 122-127 2 pts and so on, so I think it just depends on your school. We get points for our prereqs, GPA, NLN score and other lil things. That adds up to a score to either get you in or not...I believe I heard if you get 19-21 pts, depending on semester you apply for, you get accepted.

    I am a newbie, so I have to ask what is the NLN?

    to allnurses.com

    The NLN stands for the National League for Nursing, there are several different NLN exams, but the one we are all stressing about is the pre-entrance exam. This exam is given at the specific school's discretion, meaning not all nursing school give it, and it is not mandatory for entrance into all nursing schools like the MCAT is for all med schools (guys you can correct me if I am wrong about that). It is only mandatory for the specific school that choose to include it in their admissions process.
    So you can check with the school/schools you are applying too to find out if they use the NLN Pre admissions exam.
