Pre-RN Pax Exam

  1. hi, i was wondering if anyone out there has taken the pre-rn pax exam, and if so, can you offer any advice on which study guides to choose from that will be helpful?

    i have the option to take it either in feb. or march, but i'm not sure how much time i will need to give myself to prepare.


    any advice would be much appreciated!

    I took it a year ago August. I used Arco's Nursing School and Allied Health Entrance Examination Study Guide, which I borrowed from the library. You can buy it for around $16 or so, I think. Anyway, it helped me out especially with the math & science portions. Science was the most difficult. There were questions from all sorts of subjects...biology, general science, chemistry, A&P, microbiology and physics. I had taken chemistry the quarter before I took the exam and it helped me with a few of those questions, but the physics ones I flat out guessed on.

    I did pretty good...ended up in the 99th percentile.

    Good luck!
