    HESI A2 for the entrance exam study guide, Gateway

    I had Music in World Cultures loooong time ago. I think it was fun and easy. As of "World Religions" - one of my friends took it long time ago in ASU they mentioned that it was good class (but I think Music class should be the easiest ) So, Hurrlybaby, did you pass HESI? I hope you did :)

    HESI A2 for the entrance exam study guide, Gateway

    Hi, lie-lay was for sure I remember this one, as well as where to put the comma, chose the right verb, common nouns vs plural. I would say exam was a spit copy of study guide - which I opened, briefly (which I was not happy about it on exam) looked through and went for exam. If you are reading carefully and working on some exercises from the study guide - you will be fine:yelclap: Also, they have I believe 10 or 11 test options, so it does not mean, whatever question I got - you will have the same. Stop freaking out - go to study and you will do just fine!!! I know I know, you probably think - yeah its easy to say since you done it:icon_roll You will do great!!! Just relax, take your time and dont forget to breathe:smokin:

    HESI A2 for the entrance exam study guide, Gateway

    To be honest I do not remember any vocabulary words (because I didnt really studied them ) Reading part was very easy. It took me I believe 3 hr... maybe less... but I was not on any hurry to finish - the beautiful thing that this test is not timed (like NET was) so you just relax and take your time :) and you will do fine. This test is much better than NET, due to no time limits. Good luck! Let me know how did you do.

    Banner Nurse Fellows Program

    It just blows... they were promising "golden mountains" at March informational session and now what? Why they weren't honest with us a month ago? Not like it would change anything, although I would start looking for other options back then rather then now, when everything is booked already... Its just very upsetting:mad:

    HESI A2 for the entrance exam study guide, Gateway

    Hey Hurrlybaby, English is second language for me too:smokin: I didnt pass NET test at first time (comprehensive reading was though), but I waited out for HESI - guess what? Reading was such a breeze, and its got worse... not to scare you, but I was not ready for Vocabulary part at all:mad: I wish I was studying this part... Anyhow, I did pass this exam. I would recommend you to check out Vocabulary part of study guide, maybe some grammar or in any case you need to read study guide before you go. Yes, you can take it and fail, but why? You will have to wait for 60 days to take another time. Good luck to you!!! Study hard and you will do great:yeah:

    Testing Exempt for Math Prereqs at MCC (x +1 = 2y)

    MacMaster, I do not believe that you can be exempt in any way from taking math:crying2: As you mentioned you have to take MAT 142... no matter what... In any case, I dont remember book that I was using to brush up my math last year (I believe it was The Complete Idiot's Guide to Algebra (Paperback)... and also Algebra for Dummies) Entrance exam was not to bad after all. I am trying to remember what was there on the test, but after all - here is best advice for you - go and take it... it is free:) and you will see for yourself what you need to concentrate on. It is free and I do not believe they have a time limit (like NET or HESI2 ). Just try it - you might pass first time. And if not, go get a book and study what you had missed. I hope it helped. Good luck!

    What to study for Hesi? just math and reading?

    Hi Lmarko, I took my HESI less than a month ago. For MCCDNP I did not have to take CHM, A&P and BIO. You will only have MAT and ENG. But ENG will have 3 parts - comprehensive reading, grammar and vocabulary. If you are very familiar with partially medical vocabulary I would say you need to concentrate on this part. Reading was very easy (and as you can see I am Russian ) so if it was easy for me... everyone else should feel relieved. MAT was easy as well, you will also will have a calculator in case you need one. In any case good luck! Oh, btw - if you are planning to apply for Banner program - your score should be 80% on both parts (MAT and ENG), not 75%. Just a thought:smokin:
