    I just took the HESI at HCC. The study guide is plenty for the grammar and math sections. The reading was pretty easy, well I thought so. What I did for the reading was I did a lot of practice tests from THEA, COMPASS, SAT, and NET. The specific website I used was: http://www.testprepreview.com/nursing_practice.htm

    As for the A&P section, the HESI study guide is NO help at all! I was very dissapointed. I think what saved me was that I used websites that had reviews... I thought the hesi study guide was wayyy to basic!! I was so right. I would def. focus on this section.

    Im guessing you will be taking pharmacology in the fall?

    Is there an English language or grammar section to that test? I hope not, for your sake.

    I know this is just the internet, and not school, but I wish people would recognize that this is a forum for a profession/for professionals, and make an attempt to appear professional.

    Too many people are getting wrapped up in a "well, it's good enough!" internet mentality, and I have to wonder how they'll ever pass nursing school.
