I took the NET what a lot of people had a hard time with was the reading. You have to read as much as you can for a minute then the proctor told you to "stop" and mark the number to your right; then you continue on with reading the story and then answer the questions. As for the math, it was basic math, but don't get it twisted; yes you will have addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. You will have to change fractions to percents, and decimals and a combination of all the previous mentioned. You will also see: " what number of ___ is ___ (random number)." You need to know how to work these kinds of problems as you will learn this same concept for drug calculations. If you need help, I'm willing to help, if not, DO YOUR VERY BEST and try not to let nerves get the best of you!
Yeah, that's right, there was timed reading, which made me nervous as a stray cat! It was easier though cause I took it on a computer, so it just timed it for me.
Again, I would buy the prep book, since I have probably scared you to death!
When you review the stuff in the book you will think: piece-o-cake!
For those of you who have taken the NET and/or the HOBET how long would you recommend that I study before taking the test? I am VERY weak in math, even pre-algebra.
I think that would be a determination you could make after you have gotten a prep book. Most likely there will be a sample test, and you can determine your weaknesses, and make a study plan that fits your needs. Decide how much you can study per day, divide up the material you need to cover, and set a deadline based on that.
It is incredible what some focused prep can do! And ask a friend to help you figure out anything you dont understand.
The school gave me a study guide but it only has a breakdown of how to complete math problems. For instance, fractions, it says adding fractions 1/2+2/5= 3/7, then it shows step by step how to solve the problem. Then it moves onto how to subtract fractions etc... There is not really any practice problems and nothing other than math in the study guide. It says it is a mix from the NET and the HOBET, yet there is no reading comp etc in the study guide. Can you, or anyone else for that matter recommend a specific book that I should buy to study with. I am scheduled to take the test on Wed. I think I should postpone it for atleast another week or two though. What do you guys think?
I am taking the NET. How long is the test? How is it graded? Is it timed?
we took the compass test which covered reading comp.basic math with some algebra/prealgeba,geometry,and science
what Lpn program are you joining? how long is the program and how much is the program. If it is the C-Net exam they have a web site www.cnetnurse.com Let me know how if you need any additional information Good Luck!!!!!!!!!
Here are a few sites that have English practice tests that are similar to the questions on the NET test:
www.number2.com is a good site for SAT ACT and GRE testing but has very useful Comprehension assessments. You can take the practice tests and they will tailor to your problem areas and help you get better. Plus, it's free. Really good site.
Hello everyone, I am a future nursing student in sunny southern california, and I just recently took the tabe test at a local private school. I didn't pass, a little bumbed out at first, but no longer because I am now thinking about going to a community college instead just to save myself some money. Has anyone out there attended a community college for lvn program and successfully finished and working as a lvn??????If so can you recommend one please any info would be greatly appreciated......
