I take mine in March. We have to pass it in order to graduate. I am very nervous. Did you study from the Saunders book for the HESI?

I took my HESI today. We have to make an 850 to graduate. I won't get the results until tomorrow morning. Anyone care to share how they did and what the conversion score ended up being?? I'm nervous!

I did the CD that comes with the HESI book. The content on the test was the same as the CD with different questions. I found that alot of the answers to HESI questions were in the HESI hint boxes in the book as well. I wouldn't use any other resource if you only have a week. I would go through the book and do the CD and then go over your weaknesses according to the results you get from the practice exams and you will do fine!!

I just found out the good news...I passed the HESI exit exam today as well! We had to have a 900 or better to graduate. So, now after my practicum I'm done with school. :w00t:

I use the Saunders book. I have the Kaplan book and a Mosby book...And a HESI book...But Saunders is my primary resource.

Now I'm starting to think about the HESI as well...

Anyway, congrats!

When you are talking about the hesi book, are you talking about the nclex exam or just a regular hesi study for the different levels in school?

I studied from the NCLEX Saunders book and I passed the exit HESI yesterday. It was a hard test, but that book prepares you very well for it. It is supposed to predict how you will do on the NCLEX, so I am very optimistic.

They let us substitute the final grade for the HESI grade if we want it. So I am not worried about the final at all. Good luck to all of you.
