    Thanks so much for all the advice! Is there anyone who has a Mac? The computer guidelines indicate they aren't necessarily compatible. I've been looking into an inexpensive PC, but obviously would prefer to not have to get a new computer if possible.

    One more question - are we all in class together/at the same time? And there is only 1 professor that teaches each course?

    Thank you!

    You will all attend lecture together but will be divided up into groups of 10 for labs.

    It depends on the class. For care I and HA, there are multiple people who lecture, depending on the week. The schedule will be given in your syllabus and will tell you who is giving which lecture (I don't think that HA tells you though... this class has been the more unorganized one lol, but the others definitely do).

    I don't have a mac myself but I see plenty of people using them during class.

    Hello everyone I've been following this thread and a ton of others for a while just to get some info. I'm applying for 2014 spring traditional and take my hesi in may. I got the hesi prep book and the fundamentals success book for critical thinking. Is there any other study method I could use before I take the test in order to make a higher score? Any help would be appreciated!

    I used the evolve/elsevier study guide and the HESI A2 Secrets. I thought they were both pretty good.

    Good Luck!

    Megan - I also suggest Practice the HESI A2! Evolve Reach Admissions Assessment Practice Test Questions It has two full exams in it with answers. Helped me a lot with vocab, and what to expect on math. If you are rusty on your math check out khanAcademy on the web and do practice stuff over there on percentages ratios and the like. The wording of the questions is very similar.

    I agree with what everyone else has said! In the math know all your unit conversions from memory - there will be questions on that.
    A&P - I went through all my old labs and just skimmed to refresh my memory. That really helped.
