    The NET stands for Nurse Entrance Test. It depends on the school you are trying to get into if you need to take a pre-admission test. You would have to check with your own school. Some schools have other admission tests which may be called another name like the TEAS or HOBET. The main focus of the NET is the math and reading portions. The NET that I took also had a grammar portion, science portion, testtaking skills portion and learning styles portion. If you do have to take a pre-entrance exam your school might have a specific study guide they recommend you use. My school had us use the one from

    The NET was insanely easy, if you ask me. You should definitely brush up on your math (fractions, decimals, percentages, etc.) but otherwise it really isn't that difficult. Ours had a ton of reading comprehension and some grammar and spelling questions. It also had anatomy & physiology, biology, cellular biology, and chemistry (very few questions for the sciences though). At our school they don't give us our specific score, persay. They give us what percentile we scored in and where our range where our score falls into. I personally got the 90th percentile and my score fell between the 950 - 1000 score scale.

    Wowwww That is so great guys. I'm the newbie to the site and I take my test tomorrow morning. Wish me a lot of luck. I'm not that great with math, but I do think I'll pass the reading portion. Does anyone know what portion is the MOST important to pass? Like is the Math MORE important to pass than the reading is? Just wondering...

    Ok as i have read about not getting all stressed about the NET, but I am. I go tomorrow to take it and I don't know how well I will do. I have been studying the Cliff Notes Prep for the NET.....but some of that stuff is impossible. And then I see how well some of you have done and then I stress about that. I am all ready to be accepted into the school except for this Test. I have to believe that I am a good student, since it has been over 15 years since I was in High School. I have read in the forums what to expect in the test, but in comparison to what i have been studying there is alot of differences.

    I took the NET last Saturday and felt well prepared. I used The Net, The Hobet, and The Help study guide and a few websites posted here. I, like most people, was more concerned about the math until I read here that you need to watch out for the reading comp portion. So I increased my reading speed before taking the test and I am so glad I did! I took the paper version and had the best proctor! I should receive my results by the begining of next week.
