In my HESI exit exam review, I learned that the Licensing Board does a thorough review before issuing the exams. Although the Licensing Board does a thorough review, they will not issue an exam if there are major problems. One of the areas that the Licensing Board checks on is your prior education and work experience. They will also check to make sure that you meet all of the requirements of the licensing exam. If you take my HESI examination, I recommend that you do your homework and get all of the information you can before you take your test.
First, you need to know exactly what areas are being tested on the exam. The Licensing Board divides the exam into three major sections. You will have to take one of the categories in each section. Some of the sections require a computer or other device, others just require personal interaction with a computer program. It is important to know which section you need to take, and make sure you take the required tests.
Second, you need to review what you learned in class. In order to understand what you learned in class, you need to have an understanding of the material. The review book will tell you what you learned in class and will list the sections. Once you know what is in each section, it is easy to select the section you need to take and complete the exam. Be sure to take a complete examination and review book, so that you can focus on the sections that you need to complete.
Third, after reviewing what you learned in class, you need to study hard for the exam. To study hard, you need to find a good study schedule and stick to it. You will want to take the exam as early as possible, so that you are able to study right before you take it. It is important to pay close attention to every question in the exam, even the ones that you do not feel you absolutely need to answer. These questions are the ones that really determine your score. So, if you miss a question here or there, you will end up giving incorrect answers, so be sure to review your notes thoroughly.
Fourth, pay close attention to the sample test questions on the exam’s website. Most HESI exam review books will have sample tests from past years, which will give you an idea of how the questions are answered and the type of answers that are considered. By reviewing these previous tests, you will get a good idea of how the format is, and you will also be able to gauge your own skills and knowledge base. This will allow you to select a harder version of the exam, when you feel confident about your answer and comprehension of the material.
Fifth, practice, and more practice. Although HESI does not require you to take an actual exam, taking a practice exam is highly recommended. Taking practice tests will help you develop your skills, memorize answers, and develop study habits that will help you succeed on the actual exam. By taking the exit exam review, you should become familiar with the exam format, types of questions, how the tests are scored, and how you can review for the second time around.
Lastly, use a good HESI exit exam review book. After reading a review book, it is important to determine where you want to spend the majority of your review time. If you want to spend time reviewing only the questions in section one, find a HESI review book that concentrates on this material only. You can also buy a complete guide that provides practice questions covering all four sections, plus some extra tips and information. Make sure you choose a guide that gives clear instructions, includes a practice test that you can take and a review of the book’s content.
