I've actually taken the NET (nursing entrance test) and unfortunately, am going back to redo the comprehension/reading portion of the test.
I was told "if you have a brain in your head, you'll pass with flying colors" by my ADVISOR!
So I went in, thinking it'll be cake work. I reviewed my math, etc.. and did fine on math and critical thinking but missed the comprehension my 2% points. The head of the nursing school told me that when my advisor said that to me, she immediately set me up for failure. B/c you have a reason to walk in cocky and it's not THAT easy to get through the testing if you haven't been in school for years (like myself). Keep in mind, my first semester back to school after 12 yrs, I have a 4.0 while taking A&P, medical terminology
, AP lab and another course (not medically related). So with that, I ended up shy of the 50% I had to acheive. I'm not dumb by any means so it was a REAL blow to my self esteem.
My point is, don't get too over confident, study up on fractions, practice your reading comprehension, percentages, decimals, etc.. I don't know if the content of your test is near the same as the NET, but good luck to you!
I take my remainder of the test tomorrow and HOPE and PRAY I pass!
