Took the HESI today

  1. And it was a little bit harder than I thought, I still did well though. I ended up with a composite score of 90. A few of the things I remember: Math-know common household measurements (ounces to pints came up alot in my test) and Roman Numerals ( there was 2 or 3 of those) Know fractions. Reading Comprehension - pretty easy, just pace yourself and don't read too much into the question. Grammar- basic find the word that doesn't belong stuff (I made a 90 on that part) Anatomy and Physiology- This was a little bit harder than I thought, I didn't expect such in-depth questions. Ex- the mediastinum is located in what body cavity? they had a few like that. This isn't necessarily hard just not what type of questions I expected. It wasn't a hard test, MUCH easier than the NLN good luck to all taking it!!!Any more questions, feel free to ask and I will do my best!!

    Did you have to take the Chem and Bio sections? If so, what areas did the questions cover? My school just started using the Hesi A2 this year, and students are doing really poorly on it. :uhoh21: I'm taking it in early December. I'm allowed to take it one more time after that, but that's it.

    No, I'm sorry I only had A&P. I wish I could be of more help

    thank you, and good luck to you. i was so nervous, for the first few questions on the math i forgot we had a calculator to use!! my advice is to not let the nervousness get the best of you take your time, you should have plenty of time for each section. let us know how it goes, and good luck again!!
