    I take it on Friday! Any tips? I mostly have been studying for the TEAS. Where I'm more familiar with the TEAS, I have no idea what to expect from the HESI. CT is making me nervous.

    Honestly the HESI book they recommend you buy is the best way to prepare especially for the math and reading sections. For the vocab section I would recomend going on quizlet.com and just doing random vocabulary quizzes that other people have posted for the HESI. I made a 920 on my CT section and I owe it all to Fudamentals Sucess A Course Review Applying Critical Thinking to Test Taking or any other book that would be used in nursing school for critical thinking. I could not find anything anywhere on how to prepare for that section and I have heard UT-Houston looks into those scores. I feel like that book really helped me on picking "the best" answer. CT wasn't that hard you just have to think like a nurse in a way because all of the answers are correct.

    That is an awesome critical thinking score! I made a 770 on mine, do you think I have any chance getting accepted?

    Im sure it depends on the application period and what the competitive scores are. From looking back at older posts most people i saw had scores between 800-900ish but you made over the 750 so im sure you have a chance .

    Hi! I am planning to apply for their program also. What was your Hesi overallscore, if you donít mind me asking and what other books you used to prepare forthis test?
  8. 1
    Heres my stats:

    Pre-Req GPA: 4.0
    Science GPA: 4.0

    HESI Cumulative Score: 92

    Reading and comprehension: 94
    Math: 96
    Grammar: 90
    Vocab: 84
    Anatomy and Physiology: 96
    CT: 920

    Learning styles: Kinesthetic/Global
    Personality styles: Creative/People

    All I used to prepare for the test was the HESI book they recommend you buy, quizlet.com for the vocab and A&P, and I reviewed A&P through cliff notes (this was a great review because it just gives you general information which is really all you need). I felt the test was pretty easy, but my computer kept locking up in the exam which I feel really effected my nerves and my score but oh well. I also just finnished A&P II a week before my HESI test so everything was still fresh on my mind, but I used my A&P textbook to get a more in-depth review. There is only 30 questions or so for the A&P section and since it can be over pretty much anything, I wouldn't recommend getting bogged down by the details when trying to study.

    Hope this helps!

    Well.... It seems you have a really great chance!!!! Are you applying to any other schools? And did you have to take the TEAS V? I'm taking both tests on Thursday and Friday. Figured while everything was fresh in my brain to do it that way.

    Thank you! I hope so! I am planning on applying to TWU and Texas A&M and possibly UT Tyler. I haven't scheduled to take my TEAS V yet because I wasn't sure if you could before starting the application process for TWU? Where are you applying and for which semester? Everything I am applying for will be for Fall 2013.
