    I am so excited for all of you!!

    Does anyone have a date set yet for the NCLEX?

    I'm doing the Hurst Review January 7-9, so I would like to take the NCLEX pretty soon after that like no later than Jan 31. I heard that we will recieve our GN licenses sometime next week and our ATT should be with that.

    I'm not trying to sound like a know-it-all or anything, but I thought the HESI was very easy. It was my only A and highest test grade for the semester. Make sure that you read all of the HESI hints in the boxes and do the cd tests (I did each one twice).

    So to those of you who have made it through - Does making A's in the first 2 semesters seem to have any relation to how you do the last 2 semesters? I'm such a freak when it comes to grades...

    HESI hints in the boxes and do the CD? Is this a review package you bought? Sounds like it really helped.

    Not at all... I got an A 1st semester, B 2nd, C 3rd and B 4th. I will say that 3rd and 4th semester content are WAY harder.

    It was the brown HESI NCLEX-RN book in the spiral. It comes with a CD too... I was in the THR program, so they provided it for me, but I'm sure the ECC bookstore has it. It is wonderful and questions prepare you for what you will see on the HESI. Make sure that you read all of the rationales, even if you got the question right.

    Overall, hesi was okay, but there were 1 or 2 questions that I had no idea what to answer and there were 2-3 questions that I answered wrong because I misread the questions. :lol_hitti

    I agree, it helps if you do the hesi CD questions at least twice.
    Katie, GN :spin:

    How well did you guys fare on the hesi Cd's? Last semester when I did the Cd's, I did really bad on them, but I did in the 99.9 % on actual hesi. Those Cd's actually scared the heck out of me,lol.
    Brie, I am glad to hear, that you think that hesi was easy. You often hear that ECC's program prepares you well for NCLEX. Maybe this is a good predictor. I wish you all well for NCLEX.

    The cd had me EXTREMELY worried! The best I did was a 75 and the lowest was a 44. I would have never guessed that I would score 91 on the actual HESI based on the cd... LOL! It was much easier than the cd for some reason, but I was also really focused because I didn't want to fail at the end. When I was doing the cd, I was watching tv, talking to my husband, etc so I probably could have done a little better if I tried.

    Oh I forgot to say that I also went to a HESI review course, so maybe that helped me too. I did the cd and studied the book that they have us at the review. It's almost like the brown HESI book, but more condensed and the instructor told alot of tricks on how to answer the questions because she actually writes questions for the HESI. I thought it was so funny when I saw her name when I logged in to take the test.

    Is that the same HESI review that y'all got for 2nd semester?


    I did 1020 for 2nd semester. What is that in %, as far as the 2nd semester HESI goes? How do you compute it?

    I don't know how much that is in %, but it should have also shown you in %.
    We did not get a review for hesi sec. semester, did you get one, Mi'shelle?
    Does everyone get a hesi review for 4th semester?
