Can anyone direct me to a place I can get a question answered about the HESSI nursing


HI! I am also new to this. I am a computer retard.Can anyone direct me to a place I can get a question answered about the HESSI nursing college entrance exam? I am in a panick.Was ready to take exam and apply for entry to block 3 of LPN to RN advanced placement program..when I realized that there may be physics on the exam..EXperienced my first full blown panick attack trying to learn physics from a book without an instructor, as the course is neither suggested nor required for entrance;Yet they are testing on it.And I cannot get a straight answer as to how far I should go studying for it!


If anyone has taken the hessi entrance exam for LPNs, and can advise me without disclosing test content, please reply and or email me and I will be forever in your debt.I can hardly put words to my level of distress over this.The review manual from HESSI has a physics section, but the sample questions require a calculator to answer.They are very mathmatically involved, and we are only required to take math 122( intermediate algebra) and I was not taught how to solve these dimentional analysis style questions without the use of a calculator.

For instance, how would I calculate "2 pie radians" and place into a problem talking about circular motion? or m1v1+m2v2=m1v1'+m2m2'v2', solving for velocity of 2nd object? OR !!! (last but not least,sad.png and this is a sample question)

F=Gm1m2/r squared therefore (6.67x10 raised to the 11th power/Nm raised to the second power/kg squared)x(860kg)x(650 kg)divided by(300meters squared)=4.14x10 raised to-10N. All this WITHOUT the use of a calculator in 1 minute or less????? My head is just whirling. I have spent far too much taime trying to learn this topic to the neglect of the far more inportant ones.If anyone is able and wiling,please advise.

And, thanks for listening.
