    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?

    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.


    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 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....
