    could you guys tell me what study guide you used for the Kaplan entrance exam? i am going to take the exam around September but i want to be ready since my school only takes 10 students in for the nursing program each semester so it is a lot of competition, any advice on the test would be highly appreciated!

    I took the Kaplan today for Carrington College and I scored a 91.5%. This score only includes writing, math, and reading as Carrington does not test science. Would this score be enough to hopefully get me in? I scored a 96 in math, a 95 in reading, and a 81 in writing. We were tested on 71 out of the 91 total questions.

    bgg1 thank you! I wasn't sure what typical scores were for the kaplan. I used the Kaplan Nursing School Entrance Exams study guide. I've heard of a lot of people not liking it and recommending the McGraw-Hill study guide instead. I found the math section to be a lot more difficult in the kaplan study guide than on the actual test and that the "writing" section had nothing to do with the writing on the actual exam.

    I used the Kaplan entrance exam guide. The book wasnt very helpful with writing portion of the test. I think the reading and writing was more difficult than I thought. Math was easy. Dont use just the Kaplan study guide to study. I did that until last minute and started using a Barron book that helped study a week before the test.

    I bought mine at Barnes in Noble. I know Amazon has it for a cheaper price. Also I would look into checking out book from your local library.

    Thanks km22. I took the TEAS V in December and lost all hope in the BSN program. I'm scheduled to take it again in 2 weeks. This time, I'm spending more time studying than before. I started 7 weeks ago. I wanted to know how is the Kaplan exam compared to TEAS V.? Also, how many times can u take the Kaplan exam? I plan on taking it the end of Feb or early March. I guess it depends on when they send me the invitation. For those of u who took the TEas V, does the ATI manual help if I were to review it on the side before taking the Kaplan? I'm loosing hope and all comments are greatly appreciated. Thanks
