don't know which test you are going to have to take. here is information on the teas (test of essential academic skills) which is often given by nursing programs as an pre-entrance test. two other popular ones are the net (nurse entrance test) for which no study manual is available that i know of, and the nln-rn nursing school entrance test which does have one or two study manuals you can buy from bookstores like amazon
or barnes and noble. these tests pretty much cover similar information as what is listed below for the teas.
