    Lauren the vocab on hesi is nothing like the study guide. I saw maybe 5 words at most from the book on the test. I was completely thrown off by it & i was 100% confident about vocab bc i studied that book forever & studied from quizlet. Vocab ended up being my lowest score. There were some med terms but not many. I personally think the words were just random. Hopefully you will do better than i did. Good luck!

    I used the study guide and quizlet. Vocab was my lowest score as well. I just made sure to do really well on the other sections. It was the only section I did not make an A. If you study the Evolve I am sure you will do great on the test!

    One thing to remember about the Vocabulary Section: The Vocabulary section of the HESI also tests General Knowledge. For this reason, the test questions are not derived directly from the study guide, leaving us with no possible way to adequately study for this section. It is by design...

    I submitted my application yesterday. I totally agree with the comments on this thread regarding the vocab section on the HESI. Good luck to everyone and let the wait begin!!

    kate0226- thanks for the information. I was just curious what the class schedule is like, I have heard it is hard to work while in nursing school. Lol..I know its early and I may not even be accepted..but I am a planner.
    Again thanks and good luck with school.

    Hi guys,

    I was wondering for those of you who have already take the Hesi.....How is the math? Are there any fill in the blanks on the test? Can you use the calculator thats on the computer? I am really nervous about the test and it has been along time since I have taken basic math or English.... Do you need to know the definitions of what a noun, verb, adjective, etc.. ?

    Thanks

    My math section was mostly fractions, decimals, ratios, and conversion problems. I did have several fill in the blank and yes each question has a calculator option. The grammar and reading were not a problem for me; however the vocab section was an issue. I knew every word in the study guide and maybe 5 questions were asked. Needless to say I was not worried about that section at all and it was my lowest scoring section. I didn't have any definitions on my test. Good luck!!

    I just called and talked to someone at the TR East Campus. The dates listed on the website and the dates on the application packet were different, so I thought I would check it out. She told me that the date for notification was closer to the middle of November, so we might be in for a longer wait than we anticipated.

    I am so bad about waiting. It is definitely going to be a long couple of months.
