Take the Guesswork out of Passing Your HESI Exam!

Two Study Methods!

Jennifer and Amy are aspiring nursing school students. They’ve met all the entrance requirements. They have great recommendations. All that stands between them and nursing school is success on the HESI Exam.

Jennifer had always been a good student. She did okay on tests like the SAT and figured the HESI would be like that. Besides, she heard that you couldn’t really prepare for the HESI exam. She fit in some studying (in between her favorite TV shows). But as the test date approached, she got a nagging feeling that she should be doing more. When she got her scores, Jennifer had been proficient in some areas, but scored very low in English which had always been one of her strongest subjects. She was also surprised at how unprepared she was for the Science section.

Amy, on the other hand, knew she had never been a great test taker. In fact, she had always found them stressful. She had to work very hard to get the grades she got. She knew that “seeing” what the test looked like would boost her confidence. Armed with practice tests and a focused study guide, Amy quickly realized she knew more than she thought and was able to focus on the areas where she needed help. When she took the test, she scored proficient or higher in every area and confidently took the next step towards realizing her dream of becoming a nurse.

With our HESI Study Guide and Practice Test Questions you can too!

At Complete Test Preparation, Inc., we specialize in creating study aids that are painstakingly designed to the specific test you are preparing for. Members of our team combine years of teaching experience, with experienced writers and editors, all with advanced degrees (Masters or higher)

As a result, we can offer several important benefits as you prepare to take the HESI.

Study Smarter, Not Harder!

Like any test, your degree of success on the HESI depends largely on knowing how to study for it. Now, I’m not talking about burning the candle at both ends. In fact, our goal is to have you studying less not more. Nor are we asking you to spend hundreds of dollars on study guides. Our material is available for a less than the cost of a good pair of running shoes … more on that in a moment.

Practice Makes Perfect

Amy understood the same thing that many successful HESI takers understand. The more questions you see, the more likely you are to pass the test. And between our study guide and practice tests, you’ll have over 500 practice questions that cover every category. You can fine-tune your knowledge in areas where you feel comfortable and be more efficient in improving your problem areas.

Our test has been developed by our dedicated team of experts. All the material in the study guide, including every practice question, is designed to engage the critical thinking skills that are needed to pass the HESI Exam. They will not be the exact same questions you’ll find on the exam, but they are similar.

And like the HESI exam, the practice tests are weighted differently so you will be exposed to questions in all areas.
