Southwest TN Comm College Pre Nursing Spring 18

  1. Hello all! I am scheduled for my NLN Pre Entrance Exam tomorrow at Southwest Tennessee Community in Memphis TN. I was curious to know if anyone has taken it at this college and do they allow us to bring our own calculator? Or can we use one at all? I have a TI 89 calculator and I also have a basic calculator. Hoping I can bring the TI 89! Might be wishful thinking though!

    Also, they say you have to make a composite score of a 100 which is in the 50th percentile range and I have no idea what that means. Is a composite different than actually making a 100% like you would on a regular test in school?

    For those who have taken the NLN exam? Did you experience the exact questions from the NLN study guide book with the practice exams/comprehensive tests that are located at the back of the book? Any insight would be helpful! Thanks!!!

    Hey I actually took the test yesterday at southwest. The test didn't seem that difficult there were 3 parts, reading/vocabulary is counted as 1 part, then math and science. The math was pretty basic, the reading comprehension wasn't bad but I did run out of time because I read every passage 2x and had to guess throughout the 2nd half which were 30 word meaning questions. So word of advice read the questions first so that u know what to look for while reading this will benefit you. Now science seemed mostly to be physics there were many questions about sound waves, speed, wavelength, etc. Oh, and u cannot bring your own calculator they provide you with a basic one. Good Luck

    I didn't see any of the exact questions from my study guide. Time is your enemy on the test so pace yourself accordingly The science part was tough because it was alot of physics like MemTn said. also I noticed that some of my answers weren't saving so I lost time going back to correct that.

    I plan on applying to Spring 2018. I have heard in the past that the Spring semester is harder to get into because they have the nights and weekend classes. Is this true? Is there a huge difference between those semesters?
