First of all I found that it is important to have a good HESI A2 Exam Layout so that I could memorize all the different areas of the examination and learn how to answer the questions in each section properly. If you are not familiar with how the layouts work then it is highly recommended that you get yourself a good layout as this will allow you to memorize all the information required to successfully pass the examination. As there are several different types of HESI format questions you will need to have a good grasp of the different layout types so you can memorize the information required for successful completion of the exam.
The best way to get yourself a quality HESI layout is to purchase one from a reputable review site. There are quite a number of sites out there who sell different exam templates but most of these just copy and modify the content from previous exams. You can spend hours reviewing and re-reading material from previous examinations if you use this method but it is much more effective to purchase your own HESI layout. Having your own HESI review material will ensure that you learn everything you need to about taking the examination. There is nothing worse than forgetting key information about a test, so it is worth spending the extra money to buy your own review material.
The best layout will contain multiple choice questions which are easy to complete and will have multiple grids covering all the different sections of the exam. Most exam websites will supply a sample test so you can see exactly what questions are on the test. It is a good idea to take a look at this before you start the review period so you have a good idea of which questions you will be faced with.
Once you have picked out your HESI layout you will need to start the review period. This usually begins after you have received your HESI examination but is not usually until after seven days from the date you requested the test. In some cases you might be asked to arrange your exam logistics at a certain time. If this is the case you will need to tell the testing center about this at this stage.
You should now begin the layout process. It is important to spend at least an hour looking through the questions. The aim is to find as many points as possible that you can apply to in your review. As you go through the questions you should try to use bullet points rather than using large blocks of text. If you need more practice papers you may consider buying some online practice papers.
Once you have finished the first review period you can move onto the second one. The test consists of three parts, so you will have to complete them in order to take the final test. Once you have taken the first part you will have two weeks to answer the test and the second part is normally given six weeks following the first one. If you wish to extend the test you can but you will be required to show proof that you still understand the material.
There are two types of HESI a2 exam layout. The first is the main text test which is usually very similar to the regular exam. The second type is the problem set test. In the problem set test you will see how much you understand and how well you apply the knowledge that you have learnt by reading the test questions. You should therefore make sure that you understand all the layout types that are mentioned in the test before taking it.
