I took the PSB in May for a community college RN program (Collin College). The exam will seem really intimidating at first because it looks really jumbled up (the spacing between questions on mine was nonexistent and there are different types of questions mixed in each section randomly).
There are five different sections: academic aptitude, spelling
, reading comprehension, natural sciences, and vocational adjustment.
: had analogies with words and shapes and mathematics. After the exam I left feeling pretty bad about this section.
: this section was not too bad, but there are some fairly long words. One of the answers will definitely look wrong, but the other two will look very similar.
: very simple. Read the passage and answer the questions.
: very easy as long as you have completed A&P/Micro. I was 98th percentile on this one.
: how well you work with others, personality, very easy.
I left feeling really uneasy about what I scored, but when I got my scores I was very surprised. I scored very high on all sections (well above average).
You guys can do it! Just review your sciences, practice doing a few reading comprehension exercises and try to review some analogies.
