    Does anyone know how UTHSC calculates 5 hours of electives into your GPA if all of your classes are 3 hour credits?

    Hello everyone,
    I'm applying for the spring but last minute so if I don't get in, i'll be applying for the spring. I've taken my Hesi but I have to retake it again because I didn't do so well.

    I am! I am planning on taking the HESI in mid-august. Are any of you guys planning on attending the August information session?

    I am. I know it's a shot in the dark, but I'm going to go for it anyway. I'm not sure how the Pacesetter program works, but it sounds enticing; I had signed up for the HESI at my local community college, but unfortunately they don't have the A&P section on the test! How dumb is that? So now I'll have to do it through Elsevier, even though it will probably be more expensive...

    Well, I took the HESI today so if you guys have any questions I would be more than happy to help the best I can while everything is still fresh on my mind!

    I take it on Friday! Any tips? I mostly have been studying for the TEAS. Where I'm more familiar with the TEAS, I have no idea what to expect from the HESI. CT is making me nervous.

    Honestly the HESI book they recommend you buy is the best way to prepare especially for the math and reading sections. For the vocab section I would recomend going on quizlet.com and just doing random vocabulary quizzes that other people have posted for the HESI. I made a 920 on my CT section and I owe it all to Fudamentals Sucess A Course Review Applying Critical Thinking to Test Taking or any other book that would be used in nursing school for critical thinking. I could not find anything anywhere on how to prepare for that section and I have heard UT-Houston looks into those scores. I feel like that book really helped me on picking "the best" answer. CT wasn't that hard you just have to think like a nurse in a way because all of the answers are correct.
