Which HESI Exit Exam book should I get?

  1. Hello,
    I am hoping someone can explain the difference between these two "HESI" books for me. The 1st is -"Evolve Reach Testing and Remediation Comprehensive Review for the NCLEX-RN Examination 2e Text & Evolve Practice Test 2.0 Package 2nd Edition". (In particular what do they mean by "Evolve Practice Test"?). It costs $110. The 2nd is-"Evolve Reach Comprehensive Review for the NCLEX-RN Examination". It costs $62. I'll be taking my HESI exit exam on july 14. Do either of these books help with preparing for the HESI exit exam NOT THE NCLEX!!! I spoke with the people at Elsever and they couldn't tell me the difference. Do either of them have a HESI practice test included with them?? Thanks for any help!

    I would advise you get the second book. We were required to have it in school and its good but honestly no review book will make you feel prepared for HESI....only the good book THE BIBLE ...I took HESI in March and the only thing that got me through was prayer. If you want a good book that will give you an overall vast knowledge base, try Saunders Comprehensive Review for NCLEX-RN. The questions on the CD are awesome. Good luck to you

    I had the 2nd book also and I too recommend that you do ALL the practice questions included. It takes a long time to get through, but it will prepare you well. Do 50-100 something questions a day.
