Really bummed about math score on HESI A2

Nursing Students Pre-Nursing


I took my HESI A2 yesterday. Got 90s in all the grammar/vocab/reading comp sections, but as hard as I studied for the math, I only got a score of 70. I am really upset about this as my school requires a now as far as I know I need to re take the test...but I want to start in January so I have to cross my fingers that theyll still get my results in time! BUMMED! :crying2:


Don't get too bummed. I took my first HESI test just using the blue/white/yellow evolve book and scored a 90. I went to the bookstore and bought a little book called Kaplan, Math for Nurses and took the test again two weeks later and scored a 98. You should get that book to help you, I am terrible in math and that really helped me.

Thanks. I actually saw that book too!!! I have to wait 6 weeks in order to re test...which I think is rediculous...and the app stuff has to be in by september 17th, so im going to be considered a late applicant now...and may not be able to get into the program this year...since the woman in admissions at nhti told me that the past 2 yrs they have not been able to look at late applicants. I guess the up side is that if thats the case, then I can take the non nursing courses this year, and just focus on the nursing classes portion next yr or possibly get into the rn program rather than lpn. we shall see. Just mad at myself for not passing the first time. I too used the "blue book" to study...and math was the only subject i studied knowing algebra is not my friend!
