Hello I'm Mary,

I plan on becoming a nursing student in May after my second son is born in Jan. I am going to be taking the net either next month or Jan. Can anyone tell me what to expect or where I can get help preparing for it. I am trying not to buy the big expensive book, but if I have to I will. Thanks in advance.

Mary from Ohio

I am going to send this one to the STUDENT NURSING FORUM In hopes you get help there. In the meantime, Welcome to allnurses.com!!!

Anyone here care to help a new member out?


The NET is basic math (decimals, fractions, percentages, ratios, addition & subtraction and a little algebra --solve for x), basic English grammar (verb tense, run-on sentence, easy spelling), reading comprehension, and study style, stress management. Nothing to really study for, but it might help to review basic math if you haven't looked at it in a few years. This site may help: http://www.aaaknow.com/rat.htm

Good luck!

I would definately recommend buying the NET study book! It tells you exactley what will be on the test. The math is basic math (which I had pretty much forgotten in the past 15 years) and reading comprehension. The NET book gives you practice math questions and is a very good refresher course on basic math skills. It will also give you practice stories to read and questions to answer (just like the real NET test). The reading comprehension part is TIMED, so practice being able to read something failry quickly but also being able to remember and comprehend what you just read. The math part is timed also, but it wasn't as nerve wrecking as the reading part for me. Knowing what to expect and what style of questions would be asked helped me with my anxiety before the test. Good luck, be sure to let us know how you do!!
