LPN Entrance Exam

  1. Hi guys! I am taking the entrance exam for the LPN program at ES BOCES in 11 days. I have been studying a lot but I'm still really nervous about the math section. Can anyone give me some examples of what types of questions will be on the test? I am mostly worried about the word problems. I'm really wondering about the difficulty level. Thanks for the help!!!

    Are there questions like this...
    (Word Problems)
    How many five digit numbers can be formed using the digits 0, 2, 3, 4, and 5 when repitition is allowed such that the number formed is divisible by 2 or 5 both?
    A. 100
    B. 150
    C. 3125
    D. 1500
    E. 125

    How many heptagons can be drawn by joining the vertices of a polygon with 10 sides?
    A. 562
    B. 120
    C. 105
    D. 400
    E. 282

    (Complex Numbers)
    1. For i = , if 3i (2 + 5i) = x + 6i, then x = ?
    A. -15
    B. 5
    C. 5i
    D. 15i
    E. 27i
    2. If f(4) = 0 and f(6) = 6, which of the following could represent f(x) ?
    A. x - 4
    B. x + 2
    C. x - 4
    D. x + 6
    E. 3x - 12

    Just wondering because these are from a practice teas test and they are a bit out of my league. :-/

    I can't stop laughing that was the exact same words that came out of my mouth..

    As for opening post.. We didn't have to have a math course in order to get into my program. However once we were in we did have a entrance exam with basic algebra problems nothing like the above..

    Hopes this helps..

    I'm taking my exam at Eastern Suffolk Boces in April! I'm pretty good in English and Reading Comp, however less to be desired when it comes to Math and I'm SO nervous! How was the test?! I keep studying, but Math continues to be my downfall (it's horrible really) =( any pointers would be much appreciated!

    Lol no. I'm in that program now and the entrance exam was easy. It's just reading and basic algebra. Yes word problems, but easy. Know your fractions and conversions. Good luck!

    Yes. The entrance exam is really easy. If you know basic math and reading you are good.

    If your nervous about math you should brush up on your basic algebra, fractions mainly. You can go to quizlet.com they have great practice tests!

    I bought two TEAS V study guides and there are no questions even close to those. Thank goodness! I did see the same questions listed on a TEAS V practice question web page and threw my hands in the air, I have no clue how to do any of that! LOL You will be fine. I bet if you go through a study guide you will feel much more confident.

    You guys really are the best, thank you so much! I'm slightly less nervous now =) I bought a teas study guide (it has 5 different tests in it & it shows you how to break down the answers and the questions etc) I'm also doing the khan academy you tube thing to try & brush up on some stuff lol & omg I thought I was the only one!! I looked at the teas v practice questions on the web page too & I thought I was gonna pass out! I never felt more "dumb" in terms of mathematics then at that moment it was all greek to me! haha
