Hello, I'm planning to take the Hesi again and would like some suggestions on study guides for Biology and A&P. I already have the Hesi 3rd edition guide but this wasn't really helpful for the science sections. I've studied for my second attempt but it seems like I'm studying the wrong parts since I always get asked the questions I missed to review. So there must be something I'm missing or maybe I'm just unlucky or I don't know, just frustrated now. Any advise is appreciated.

Thanks.

Have you taken both A&P 1&2 yet? If not, that may be why it is difficult for you to answer many of the questions. In my opinion, the A&P section requires more general knowledge of the subject rather than knowing in depth facts. Understanding the important functions and locations of major organs and organ systems will help you put the pieces together when it comes to answering many of the questions. The brain, heart, digestive organs and skin would be some of the most important organs to study as well as the respiratory, digestive, and cardiovascular systems. Using quizlet might help with practicing your knowledge of the subject and give you better guidance on what to study. Good luck :)

Yes, I've taken A&P 1&2, and Biology and did well, but I did well cause I'm the type of person that needs to know what to review in order to do well. The HESI isn't like that and that might be my problem or that's what I tell myself to believe.

The first time I took the HESI I passed everything except for A&P (I didn't study at all, just skimmed through the HESI 3rd Edition Guide, and thought that was enough). The second time I studied, I did better but still missed it by one question. I started second guessing myself for some reason even though I knew the answer. I'm not sure if its due to being nervous or a feeling of loosing confidence, being afraid that I might fail again.

Your suggestion is what I need to do. I guess I'm just here to vent my frustrations in order to forget about my past attempt so I can build up confidence and have a feeling of a fresh start.

Thanks for your suggestion, I hope to feel much better.
