I am about to take the Hesi exam exit and I was wondering if anyone has purchased the HESI exam manual or CD-rom. I wanted to know if it was helpful and worth the 85.00. I would appreciate any comments concerning the Hesi exam.
I had to take the HESI to be allowed to finish my program. I took it the first time in Dec and did not meet the minimum for my school so I had to take it again, took it Valentines day. It covered a lot of stuff, psych, cardiac, drugs(5questions), med surg, geriatric, peds and everything. I was kinda blown away by it, i had 165 questions and it took me over 1.5 hours to finish the test the first time, the second time, I only had 85 questions and finished in under an hour.
The first time I took it I scored 894 and the second time I scored a 1041(by the grace of the good lord) and am just excited about not taking it anymore!
I did not buy the study manual or the CD-I used my nclex books,and CD's to study for the Hesi.
The HESI is very nit picky-a lot of stuff was prioritizing, like assessment stuff and that sort of thing.
Hope this is helpful in some way!
