    The HESI exam covers three sections: basic math (fractions, military time, decimals, roman numerals etc), reading comprehension (purpose of the passage, tone of voice, etc.) and vocabulary (general and some basic medical terms like dorsal (back)).

    I used the study guide that Kaplan suggested: "Evolve Reach Testing and Remediation Admission Assessment Exam Review, 2nd Edition by HESI". ISBN: 9781416056355

    I'm not sure, but I believe the passing rate required is 70% or 73%.

    Hope this helps. =]
