1. Hi guys!

    I'm taking the exam very soon. I am really nervous. I need help!

    I plan to apply to UNLV. As I understand we are required to take 4 sections (Reading Comprehension, Math, Grammar, A&P).
    For the reading portion, is it like the SATs? where you read a passage and they ask questions about it?
    For Math? I looked over some review guides and they mostly had basic math. Is that all?
    Grammar - is this subject/verb agreement? punctuation? or vocabulary is included here as well?
    And for the A&P, it's okay not to get 75% score right?

    Thanks. Any suggestions?

    This HESI exam isn't as hard as I thought it was going to be. I bought the review book and I went over it once to just brush up on a few things. I'm not sure about your school requirements, but for my school (TMCC) you had to get at least a 75% on all subjects. The math is very basic along with the reading comprehension and grammar. I would definitely study the A&P part if you haven't taken those classes in the last year. Good luck!

    Thank you. =))
    I took it last week and it was actually pretty easy. I just hope my scores would help me get into the program.

    Hi, can anyone tell me what score is desirable if you are applying for the upcoming semester but still in the last remaining classes? I got 90% on HESI A2, but I am still in the last two classes (CHEM & STATS). Since the CHEM I am taking this semester won't be counted in the science base points, I am wondering if I should take the test again and aim higher score.
