Hi everyone,

I take my HESI this Friday and nerves are definitely getting to me. I am tested on every subject except for Physics. I have been studying every single day since March and I honestly feel really good about it. However, I am getting nervous because what if the test is not how I expect it to be? I'm taking the test through Elsevier and I've been studying from the Edition 4 book and the Elsevier Pocket App (which I have completed twice already). If anyone has taken the HESI and has studied a lot like I did, was it easier/harder than you expected? Thank you! Any reply helps.

Hi! I took the HESI last year. I honestly thought it was easy since I also studied as much as you did although I only used the HESI book as well as a few Quizlets (but very rarely). In fact like my test literally had some questions I had already practiced since they were in the book so that's probably one of the reasons lol. I think that if you've done practice tests/questions you already know how they're phrased so you should be ok.

Wow! It makes me feel so much better to hear about other people's experiences with the HESI. Thank you for this!!

Hey guys,

Just looking for advice, Im a LPN trying to get into a Rn bridge program. I need the Hesi for one school and ati teas test for another.

Which test should I take first?!?! Do you guys think one is harder than the other?? I did take the Teas V to get into Lpn school but that was 7yrs ago I know the test has changed. Im also super worried about A&P I took those classes 10 years ago.

I suggest you take the HESI first because, at least to me, it was easier than the TEAS. Hm the A&P questions on the Hesi were pretty basic. They were mostly recall questions like what does this hormone do etc. If you know your basics I think you should do good. Although since you said it's been awhile I'd suggest reviewing quizlets or doing practice questions.

Hi there! 

I took the HESI A2 exam for the first time on September 24th, 2019 and scored a composite score of 92.8%   

The order I took the exam along with the score for each section is as follows:

Grammar - 92%

A&P - 92%

Vocabulary - 94%

Math - 96%

Reading Comprehension - 90%

 

My exam timer didn’t pause during breaks , which caused a bit of anxiety because I hadn’t calculated that into my preparation. 

So I sat it out and towards the end, during reading comprehension, I was eager to finish and rushed that section. 

I studied for a month and half in advance. Math was my most challenging subject so I spent the majority of my time brushing up on fundamentals and what not. It was very easy, I definitely over prepared. Lots of ratio and proportions and conversions like everyone else said. I practiced every other day and printed out worksheets online.  

A&P section surprised me the most. Felt confident I’d get the highest score in that section but there were a few questions that totally blew me away for the worse. Can’t remember exa

Definitely ask your test site in advance whether or not the exam is paused during breaks. I was really worried I wouldn’t have enough time but ended up finishing the exam in two hours and 17 minutes. 

I zoomed through the English sections. Didn’t study as much on those sections! 

All in all, so relieved to score a 92.8% composite score! Wish you all the best of luck!
