I don’t know if you have tried to take the actual HESI A2 Anatomy and Physiology test. Well, let me be the first to say that I haven’t and I don’t plan to. The reason for that is because I have failed miserably over the past couple of years when it comes to studying and reviewing my subjects for that test. I have taken and passed five AEMs and five PHN courses already but this isn’t going to make me any better at it. Why do I feel so strongly about it?
Because, to tell you the truth, I spent eight months of my life studying for that exam. I didn’t take it because I felt like doing well on it or even wanted to do well on it. No, I did it because I felt like it was my duty to pass my AEM or PHN so that my name would be respected in the medical world. Now, don’t get me wrong, passing your medical or biology class is important but don’t let it be your only reason to take an exam.
I have talked about the importance of taking practice exams before the final exam in my previous blog post. I encourage you to do the same thing. However, don’t take my HESI exam as a “filling in the blanks” kind of test. Instead, get a good textbook, review the material that is covered, and take my HESI exam as if you were really preparing for an actual exam.
That sounds easy, right? Not as hard as it sounds. Before you do anything, take a few hours away from everything else and sit down. Get a pen and paper and write down questions that you want to ask your instructor during the class. Write down everything from what kinds of questions relate to lab activities to the types of biology information that you want to know.
After you spend some time writing down your questions, then comes the most important part: finding the time to study. You may need to ask one of your family members to help you or spend some time at home. If you need help, there are plenty of resources out there that can help you understand what is going on. Spend some time studying, and soon enough, you’ll have enough knowledge to pass the test.
When I first sat down to take the test, I didn’t think I had a chance at all. I felt like I was in a world where nothing happened, and that studying for the test was just another way to waste my time. However, I learned some things along the way that changed how I thought about biology and prepared for the test. I learned how to manage my time and how to get the most out of each question.
The hardest thing for most students is to find the time to study and gain as much knowledge as they need to pass. That’s why taking an online Biology class is such a great idea. You can do it whenever you have time, and you learn at your own pace. Once you’ve taken the HESI an Anatomy and Physiology Reddit test, you’ll be surprised at how much knowledge you gained.
