    Don't worry Pineapple Crush, that's just the way it goes I guess... But I know alot of ppl that didn't make it in. Almost 300 people applied this cycle and they only took 80 so ALOT of ppl will be sad today February is just right around the corner. In the meantime, I'm gonna work on a minor. Also, don't forget to sign up for a NET study guide session (RDG and MATH); they're free! Congrats to those who made it!!

    Hi all,

    Sorry to hijack your thread. I'll only be a minute

    Sabrina - Where/when is the NET study guide session? I have been looking everywhere for one and have not found much. I need to retake the NET soon. I had the study guide and took the practice exams and passed (barely), but my score will not be competitive enough for ASU. I'd really like to take it again and hopefully I will do better, but using the same study guides as before won't help...

    Thanks and good luck to all of you (at ASU or MCCC)! I plan on applying for the Spring '11 semester.

    You can find the list of dates here: http://studentsuccess.asu.edu/rsvp/ I believe that the only dates left are on the 12th, 18th and 19th. And all of the review sessions are in the afternoon or early evening at ASU's Downtown campus.

    I'm going to the sessions on the 18th, but to be honest, I've been talking to some people and they have said they don't help much. I guess we'll just have to see, I'm really looking for something to help with the reading section. If you need help with the math, go to www.testprepreview.com and they have an excellent math section. The prep I did for the math section last time I took the NET was based solely off of what they had for practice tests for the NET and I managed a 97, so I think it is really good.

    P.S. Since you're applying for Spring '11, you still have a LOT of time to prepare for the NET, so don't worry too much. You won't have to take it until July of next year! Don't stress yourself out too soon!

    Good luck!

    Too late for the stressing I took every practice test I could find and I felt somewhat prepared, but I still got a 67 on the reading comprehension (did great on the math). I'm not sure how else I can be better prepared for the NET, which I will have to take before May-ish.

    Thanks for the link! I noticed it was free for ASU students, but I am not one. Do you happen to know if we can pay for the class? I'll need all the help I can get...

    I don't think study sessions will help much. The NET reading questions are bs. Some of questions don't have a good answer listed but you are chosen to pick one. The best you can do is just take the online practice NET and see how the test makers intend for their bogus questions to be answered. As for the math, if you can't do what is required on the NET, then I wouldn't want you to be a nurse.

    As I mentioned, I did great on the math portion. No worries there. I did the online practice test and still got a 67, which is crazy because I've never received less than an A in any English course - high school or college. I agree the reading questions are BS, but it is what's required, so I'd like to do well on it and then complain later, not the other way around

    I totally understand. I am the same way. Never had anything less than an A in either hs or college english courses. If you want to do well, even buying the NET study guide will help. The authors try to explain the rational behind each question. I used it and got a 79.

    Have it, didn't help. That's why I grasping at straws and would be willing to try even a study course.

    Hey cna to crna to be,I talked to a girl that got in but relinquished her spot because she is pregnant, she said the counsler told her she was the fourth person to talk to them about not taking their spot. So there might still be hope for us to get in. I just wanted to see if you have heard anything about the waitinglist, take care

    Anyone reapplying for the Summer 2010 cycle?

    Seems like time is just flying by!! For those of you who haven't heard, after this cycle, the NET will be replaced with another test called "TEAS" -- it consists of math, reading, science, and english questions. When I picked up my new application the girl at the Student Services Office gave me the flyer. Even though this test has a few extra subjects than the NET, I'm still not sure what sections we will be required to pass or even what will be included in the "advancement score"... I'm hoping I get in this cycle so that I don't have to worry. Anybody else heard anything?
