I know every test is different and randomized, but does anyone have any guides they personally believe helped the most to get them their high score. I'm more worried about Anatomy & Physiology, vocabulary, and math than other subjects i need to take. Also does anyone have any free study guides that are good as well, trying to limit my spending since my budget is kind of tight.

Subjects i have to take:

  • Reading Comprehension
  • Grammar
  • Vocabulary/General Knowledge
  • Math
  • Anatomy/Physiology.

No. I'm informed of what subjects from the hsei I have to take per my schools requirements.

I only used one study guide. Evolve Reach Admission Assessment Exam Review, the 2nd edition. It was helpful for getting an idea of the format of the test. I probably spent a few hours looking through it. To me the information presented on the test was either you know it or you don't. Reading comprehension, vocabulary, and grammar,( unless English is not your first language )is probably something you don't have to worry about spending much time on, math in my opinion was pretty basic: add, subtract, multiply, divide, ratios, and a few conversion problems. A&P was so random, it was not required for me, but I took it anyway, I made an 84, and I took A&P in 2009. My highest score was math,98. My English language composite score was a 94.

I also used Evolve Reach Admission Assessment Exam Review. I only looked through it to see the format of the test. There isn't really anything to study from the guide. It's pretty much information that you know or you don't but can make a good educated guess on! Good luck!

Yeah, that's the only one I used too. I made sure I knew how to do every math problem in there. I looked through the other sections briefly (meaning a night or two before the exam just to get an idea of the types of questions that might be asked). And I have the same opinion about the A&P section. I took the HESI right before my final exam in A&P II so the subject was fresh in my mind, but the questions were so random. I did well on the test with a cumulative score in the 90s.

Ok. So studying for the a&p section isn't possible but more so that portion only is testing what you remember from taking the class

Some people do study for the A&P portion by reading various books. I might have done that if I was not currently in A&P at the time. The problem is, you never know if you are even going to get asked a question pertaining to what you studied. I will say this: I found it helpful to know at least where bones and muscles were located in the body. Just by knowing that, I could eliminate some answers on a few of the questions. So that is something you might study if you don't already have a general knowledge of it.
