    Well CONGRATS on taking the 1st step
    I know I took the NET test and I have to say I was somewhat "shocked" how easy it was. I know I got myself all wound up for nothing(I had pushed it back a few times in fear I wouldnt pass & we are only able to take it once a year) I know it is pretty basic math(I had been studying for advance algerbra!) Ratios, Percents, addition, subtraction, multiplication, divsion, and basic algerbra equations.

    The reading comp is pretty easy too.

    I found that the the onlinetestprep was too overwhemiling & had stuff that wasnt even on there! CLiff notes makes a book called "Nursing school entrance exam" which is really good. If you lived closer to Colorado I would give it to you:wink2: I know I would go Barnes & Noble and take a lookies!

    Good Luck!!! If you have any other questions feel free to ask me!

    Yhea I know I was soooo freaking out and I think I almost siked myself out to the point I should be glad I did to well:uhoh21: I know just take your time and I know I did every question twice on the math section! I know there is sooo much basic math that I wanted to do as WELL AS I CAN on that so I could have some "screw up range" on the tougher stuff

    You was so correct!!! The test was very basic, but I am not going to say i aced it. Being out of school for 17 years( Thank GOD I studied) this test would have been very difficult if I had not refreshed my memory . Also you made me feel less nervous about the test because you reassured me of the test material was not difficult and I had studied the correct material.

    Hopefully, I passed with no less than 99 percentile. I have a question for you. Was it a lot of people trying to get in the class you are now in? If so how many people and how difficult was it for you to get in ?

    We got our results INSTANTLY which was good & bad because I was "preparing" myself incase they told me I failed!

    I am going to a private school and they take 30 students a class and run 2-3 classes a year. They run it with the 1st come & top score thing & then run a wait list after that. Oh course I am paying a ARM/LEG about 20k because they run it this way

    You will do fine! I know I keep waiting for it to get harder and I was "somewhat" shocked!
    Cant wait to hear how you did!

    Forgive my ignorance but what is a NET test. I'm not sure I have come across this in my State.

    Got my score back!!! Here are my results.

    Composite Score 82
    Composite Percentile 98

    What do these number mean. I know I pass but I need to know if these numbers are good enough. The required scores for passings are 42% for Math and 51% for Reading. :gandalf:

    Thanks you for any responses:spin:
