This is my first post. Great forum
I just scheduled for the exam for Nov. wondering if anyone can let me know what the test consist of.
Hey there...welcome to the board!!!
I took the test several times, so let me start off by saying don't get discouraged if you don't get a good enough grade to get accepted the first time around. Not everyone is that lucky.
Secondly, yes, get the NLN Pre-Entrance Exam Study Guide - 2nd edition is the most recent (search on Google or Ebay). Study that over and over and over!!! Make sure you understand it! And take the tests in the book as well. This will be the closest to the test you'll get.
In my opinion, this will be the only book you'll need. The test will consist of 3 section...Math, Science & Verbal. Verbal & Science have 80 questions (60 of which are counted towards the grading of the test) and Math has 54 questions (40 of which are counted towards the grade).
This last time I took it, I got a 92% (Composite score of 133) and that is good enough for me!!! That should get me into the program. You may not understand composite now, but you will!!!
Best of luck taking the test in November!!! And like I said, just review this book over and over and over!!!! Keep us posted.
