Jan 9, '07Joined: Jan '06; Posts: 103; Likes: 1I just got back from taking my HESI. I passed, but am not happy with my A&P section score. It was a lot tougher than I anticipated. It would have helped so much if I had already taken AP2 as well as AP1. There were several questions about body systems that we did not cover last semester in AP1. There were 7 sections (2 of which we did not have to take). Here is what I got:
AP - 68
Math - 94
Reading/Compr - 91.49
Vocabulary - 92
Biology - 92 (this section wasn't required, but I took it before I realized)
The passing cut-off score is 65...so I barely made it with the 68.
The bad part is, after I finished and logged off the computer, they never could pull up my test scores. They were all lost! UGH! I had luckily written them down and they talked with the Director and they are taking my scores to the Health Occupations division office. I am just scared there will be some issue and I will have to retake the entire exam. Oh well, maybe I can study more for the AP section then :-)
Glad it's over with!
Let me know how y'alls experiences went.

I'll be taking mine in a few weeks, I'll be sure to post the results afterwards.
Jan 9, '07Joined: Jan '06; Posts: 103; Likes: 1Quote from sejinNo, I didn't think any of the sections were difficult except A&P. I did not take the prep course, but I bought the study guide. Some of the questions on the test were exactly the same from the study guide, especially some of the vocab words (like "untoward" and "voided") - I was glad I had gone over the words from the guide. From what I read in the test intro. - the tests are different for everyone and it's different every time you take it. So what questions I got - you won't. Good luck to you.Was the vocabulary hard at all?
Jan 9, '07Joined: Jul '05; Posts: 120; Likes: 6I took the HESI last year but I also noticed that quite a few of the questions were exactly the same as some of the one's in the study guide. My scores were pretty similar to yours. A&P was my downfall as well. At least you passed; that's the important part.

Jan 11, '07Joined: Jan '07; Posts: 29; Likes: 1Wow I'm just going over the bones right now and I sincerely hope that we do not have to know every name and marking for the 206 bones.. it was a pain in the butt in AP but now to know every system and organ for the HESI AHHHHHHH.
Jan 12, '07Occupation: R.N. ICU Joined: Jan '07; Posts: 39; Likes: 1Is it really super detailed? I wouldn't imagine that it would be. I didn't have to take the Hesi to get at the time I was applying, just that net test thing.
Did have to take Hesi as an exit exam though.

The questions in the study guide are a great example of the questions you need to know. Buy A & P for dummies (or something like that - it's a quick study book) and go over it or just review each system. If you took A & P and did ok, it should come back pretty easily. If you have any specific questions, please ask and I'll try to answer. I teach A & P & would be glad to help if I can.
