    Wow, you did very well on the exam! I will have to brush up on the medical terminology for sure!

    Thanks! I overstressed way too much about it lol. I would just go in relaxed and calm and you should do fine. Passing the test doesnt really do anything for me, still going to be a challenge to get accepted

    a very bittersweet test lol

    I think I'm over stressing too much as well. Is there a wait list for your school or is it just hard to get into?

    leelee-

    make sure you brush up on converting fractions to decimals, and converting decimals to fractions.
    touch up on ratios, they are very easy with multiple choice.
    ie

    1:5::10:x

    solve for X... I had a bunch of these with multiple choice.

    learn how many pints are in an ounce, ounces in a gallon, and pints in a gallon.

    learn converting millileters to leters and kilometers to meters.

    I had a few, "which is larger...1/3 1/2 2/3 ect ect" make sure you know fractions

    I had multiple word problems, just read carefully, they are usually simple multiplication and division problems.

    I had add these numbers together...odd because there is a calculator

    I had mulitply these numbers...still use the calculator lol

    Add and subtracting of fractions, with and without whole numbers

    I had to get this in writing while it is still fresh in my brain...if you can learn these before you go (again this was for the hesi-a2) i would almost bet you would get at least an 80 or above.

    feel free to add to this list

    You will do fine, I was extremely scared and did really well to my surprise. We used ATItesting.com at my current school, Central school of practical Nursing in VA. I actually used a friends review booklet, and went online and looked up practice test and questions. I had a collective mix of chemistry, a little math, reading, it was not bad as I thought. You will do great, just remember to relax before the test, that helps me....
