Math is a lot of fractions and decimals, plus basic algebra. Reading and writing are a bit harder to pin down. I'll post a link to a review I thought was spot on! And science is pretty much all A&PII physiology. A lot of cardio, respiratory, some nervous system thrown it. It was difficult for me because the way some of the questions are worded makes them confusing.

That all being said, I got a 95 overall with 85 in science. I wish science was higher but overall, I'm fine with these scores.

Can I give you a suggestion? Kaplan University (if this is the school you are referring to) is not nationally accredited or recognized by the board of nursing. Basically, you will not be able to transfer credits after you obtain your RN. Most hospitals/clinics are now requiring a BSN. I went through the practice test with Kaplan and then did some more research. I am now about to start a BSN program with National University.

Give I give you a suggestion?  Stop spreading blatant misinformation.

Kaplan University was bought out by Purdue, and is now Purdue Global.  Their nursing schools, are only in 3 states, all of them are approved by the states' BON.  They are also CCNE accredited.

Kglancaster you might be confused. The Kaplan exam is a standardized test, much like the hesi or teas. I don't believe the OP is speaking about the school you are mentioning, but rather the entrance exam named Kaplan.
