    I took the test too on 2/22 @ 1:15. There were so many people there. I wonder how many people will be accepted into the sept 2009 class? If all those people just happen to pass, who will they let into the program???

    And about the people, was it over 50 people in your group or more?

    Thanks and Good Luck!

    There were over 100 people there. If I had to guess, I would say almost 250 people were there.

    My instructer for the Cnet said that they choose the students with the highest scores and also after the Cnet theres a Tabe test , the same goes for the Tabe, they choose the highest scores- so i guess thats how they eliminate applicants. In another thread, or maybe even this one (not sure)... someone posted that they choose 150 students... 50 for mid-manhattan, 50 for BALC and 50 for Goldwater. I'll check and post the link.

    no, if you pass both test( cnet, tabe a) and pay your part you are automatically in! we had about 80 people in the brooklyn school this year!!!!! they usually take in 60 for each school, some had to go to the manhattan school and some dropped out later in nov and december. now we currently have 66-68 people i believe.

    If you read a lot of books you would know the antonyms and synonyms, if not....read as much as you can. They were a very random bunch of words

    They do pick the student with the highest score based on national results (not sure what this entails).

    To be clear, here is the percentile based on how many questions I got right and what they say I scored nationally:

    - Reading: 32 out of 40 - 80% - National Score: 56%
    - Math: 45 out of 50 - 90% - National ScoreL 74%
    - Language: 46 out of 60 - 76% - National Score: 37%

    The 37% is why I didn't make into the program this year. So you really have to do well, not just get 40% of the questions right. Wish I would have known that before I took the test. Hope this helps.

    Reading-36;40 - 78 percentile
    Numerical -45;50 - 74%
    Language-56;60 - 81%

    Cnet-137 out of 150 86 percentile

    On the TAbe 12.9 and 12.9
    The Cnet is harder than the TABE. The TABE gives you less time. Therefore, they are both similar in their respective ways concerning difficulty. I studied the McGraw Hill,Barrons and Cnet Book. I've been out of school for over 20 years. If youstudy, you will pass. Hope this helps.

    Kaplan-Nursing School Entrance exam-2nd edition.
    Barron's-Nursing School Entrance Exams-3rd edition.
    McGraw-Hill's Nursing School Entrance Exams.

    Go to Barnes and Noble. They have a big section on nursing entrance exam books.These tests are harder than the CNET or TABE. If you can do these tests, you'll pass the CNET and TABE.

    BTW, are they still in the process of administering the CNET for the BOE?
    I thought everyone took it already for the AUG 2009 class.
