    it was more difficult then i thought. They only allow less then one minute for each question. The vocabulary words were the toughest. I'm almost 40 and I haven't heard of some of those words.

    I take the pre-rn entrance exam in November. I am so nervous. I also purchased the book and found it to be very helpful. Good luck to all!!

    I took the PAX this past Tuesday (the 19th) for the third time!!! It is hard for sure and I agree...I am 30 and I do not know a lot of these words!!!! And last time, that is what brought my score WAY down!!!

    The NLN Pre-Entrance Exam Study Guide is your best bet...JMO. Check out may be able to get a used one.

    I got my scores back an 85% and a Composite Score of 124. I am praying this will be high enough to get into the program at my school (I know someone with an 88% got in for fall) is much better than what I got last time because I scored much better on the vocab part.

    Hope you did well, and I have to say, once you take it once, you kind of know what to expect from it. Vocab is a huge part I needed to brush up on, so this kind of gives you an idea of what you need to work on more, if anything!
