hi, semo_girl!

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.

http://www.atitesting.com/productinfo/teas.aspx - the home page of the organization that writes and administrates this test. the test covers four general areas: math, reading, english and science.

math covers whole numbers, metric conversion, fractions, decimals, algebraic equations, percentages, and ratio/proportion

reading covers paragraph comprehension, passage comprehension, and inferences/conclusions

english covers knowledge of punctuation, grammar, sentence structure, contextual words and spelling

science covers science reasoning, science knowledge, biology, chemistry, anatomy and physiology, basic physical principles and general science
