You are reading page 4 of Kaplan Nursing Entrance Exam!
This was very veryp helpful. I have taken the tests twice and next month I will be able to retest. I had as I can recall the same questions. So, the reading is Essay ? Those passages are so long.
The questions for Kaplan entrance are VERY specific for the Science portion. It has questions regarding what happens to the lungs when you breath, what a negative feedback cycle is, parasympathetic mode, ...... umm... There was a question about the renal system, digestive system, gout, asthma, blood flow of the heart and a few others that I can't remember. Good news is that it really is all about physiology and nothing else. I took A&P 1 and 2 and aced both classes and ended up only getting 65% on this portion the first time. You kinda either know it or you don't. I feel like having a broad understanding of each system is the only way you'll pass it. Should definitely take AnP before attempting. The math is very simple. Adding, subtracting and multiplying fractions, percentages, conversions and ratios. The reading and writing were simple but long and tedious. As long as you have a basic understanding of grammar, spelling, punctuation, verbs, nouns, etc... you should be fine. Good luck everyone!!! xox
This was such a huge help thank you thank you thank you!!!
Hi I wanted to introduce myself, I am currently a student at gwinnett tech , I am trying to find help for preparing myself for the kaplan exam. I am scheduled to take on the 12th of Jan 2017. Please help I have to get in this program.
so is there any specific questions you remember on the reading? I keep failing the reading portion, i took it once last year got a 74, i did not get in. the science and math are pretty decent i did score 82 on the math and 95 on science portion.
I just took the Kaplan Entrance Exam! Although, I passed, my score isn't competitive so hopefully I can provide a few tips.
Reading-(22 questions, 45 min.): Use an ACT study guide for this section, but avoid the super long passages because the Kaplan will use short passages, each with 5 questions. Having "reading" first is tough because you're really nervous, so be sure to read slow but not too slow because your 45 mins. will go by quick.
Ex: "What sentence doesn't belong in this passage?" or "In paragraph 3, what is the Author trying to illustrate?"
Math- (28 questions, 45 min.): This section is easy. Some of the questions are a joke, considering you're given a calculator for any question. Know how to add, subtract, divide, and multiply fractions. Know how to convert decimals into percentages and vice versa. You have to convert some problems but don't worry because they'll provide everything. This section has the most questions, so do really well, then you won't need to perform as well in other sections.
Ex: "Anna needs to administer 1/2 oz and 3/4 oz of medication, however, she only has 1 oz of the medication. Does Anna have enough medication?"
Writing- (21 questions, 45 minute): This section was tough. Don't over analyze the questions, because multiple answers seem right but go with your gut. You'll read a passage and answer about 5 questions regarding the writing. I would watch Youtube videos and/or review the content on this link: Rules at Grammar Bytes!
Ex: "Which sentence uses an incorrect form of punctuation? Sentence 1,2,3,4,5?"
Science- (20 questions, 30 minutes): I reviewed all my A&P Powerpoints and I barely passed. Watch these videos:
Human anatomy and physiology | Health and medicine |
Review: hypertension, asthma, WBCs, respiratory system (all), cardiovascular system, how blood flows through the heart, negative feedback, different lobes of the brain and their functions.
Thank you for this!! I am scheduled to take the Kaplan in Jan. I am so nervous because for my school we can only take it once every 366 days!! I am in Ak and our nursing school is very competitive and only takes 16 students a year. So I really need to do well!!
Wow can u help me on the science
do any of you know what the renal question was? i feel like there was only one on my test
i believe it was a question asking if you have metabolic acidosis what system would be involved? and the answer is Renal
i am super nervous for the math portion of this test. Any advice on what to study? I saw on the examples that there were questions involving dosages which freaked me out a little!
Hi! I am definitely weak in math. What was on the Kaplan that I should focus on?
