Question about the HESI

I am taking the HESI on Monday for PMI. I am looking over the study book, and it's not too bad. BUT THEN I got to the grammar part, and I am stuck with the thought of.... Are they REALLy going to be asking me to diagram a sentence?? (Or just pick which sentence is correct, or which word correctly fits into the sentence??)This portion of my study book does not have any "Now you try it" parts, so I am not really sure what they are looking for when giving us all this gramatical information.

If someone could help me out a little with direction of the grammar portion of the HESI, I sure would appreciate it!! I do very well with writing, and setence structure. However, I have NEVER done great at diagraming a sentence e.g. saying what the adverbial clause is, where the adjective is. I have never memorized each part (beyond the basic noun, verb, adverb) and frankly, if I don't have to memorize it now, I would rather NOT!!!

Thanks!!

That doesn't sound like the HESI test I took at all. It was all nursing school style questions, you know- the type you will see on nclex. Nothing about diagraming a sentence. Beleive me, I woulda failed that one! But I did great on HESI.

Do you mean grammar? There may be some spelling questions on the HESI. Just review the study guide really well and hope for the best. When does the next class at PMI start?

It's been several years since I took the HESI entrance but you're right...it does have grammar. I don't believe it's naming the verb, noun, pronoun, etc...I think it is more sentence structure. I don't think you have anything to worry about.
