Prepare to ace the HESI (A2) Admission Assessment Exam for acceptance into the program you desire. <div id="
With the help of this study guide, I was able to manage a 94% cumulative score with nothing below a 92% in a single category. The subjects I needed to take were reading comprehension, grammar, vocabulary, anatomy and physiology, and math; this study guide was generally accurate on what I had to know. That said, I do have to emphasize “generally.” For example, in the A&P section, I had several questions about joints, but the study guide only mentioned joints as part of the skeletal system and never specified them (e.g. hinge or ball-and-socket). My test also asked me to identify the proper sequence of bone healing (i.e. hematoma, callus formation, etc), but the study guide never described bone healing, just bone remodeling. I have taken A&P before, though, so I was able to depend on my own knowledge. For anyone without a background in A&P, I highly recommend Crash Course Anatomy & Physiology with Hank Green on YouTube.TL;DRI also came across questions in other sections of the HESI that this study guide never went over. “Immigrate” vs “emigrate” for one, and how to solve for x^2 for another. Again, I have a solid background in English and math, so I was able to manage. Honestly, though, anyone with a GED or high school diploma could probably manage at least an 80% in math and English using this study guide alone. Except for the odd question here and there, I did NOT find the HESI to be hard at all (A&P included), and I’m an adult returning to school after a 15-year hiatus. Most of the test question are likely what people encountered in grade and high school, which this study guide really is just a refresher for (except for maybe A&P). People who can confidently say they are/were good students can be confident in their ability to get a good score. Just don’t wait until the last minute to study but do give yourself at least a week of prep time.As satisfied as I am, however, it did frustrate me at times. The pictures in the Kindle version are awfully blurry with the labels for the muscular system diagram virtually illegible. The math section was also confusing as the steps to solve an example are listed underneath instead of right next to the equations. The steps don’t even specify which equation they refer to; readers have to figure it out on their own (which they will).Nonetheless, and despite the errors that previous reviewers rightly pointed out, I can honestly say this study guide was more helpful than hurtful (I didn’t recognize many errors btw – I’d say maybe 5% of the content was erroneous). The grammar section was almost spot on, covering more than what I encountered in my test (I had no “who vs whom” or “less vs fewer” questions, but plenty asking me to identify dependent and independent clauses). The reading comp section also gave relevant tips on how to identify the summary, which usually has a little bit of each paragraph but no specific details. For math, I found that it covered mostly everything minus how to solve for x^2 as mentioned previously. I personally did not encounter Fahrenheit/Celsius conversions nor Roman numerals, but plenty of ratios and pint/gallon/ounce conversions. The vocabulary review wasn’t exhaustive (I encountered maybe 4 words in the HESI that the study guide mentioned), but the test makes it so a person can glean a word’s meaning from context clues, so I don’t believe it’s necessary to memorize hundreds of words. Plus several of the questions don’t even require knowing the definition, just the correct spelling (e.g. perscription vs prescription). I do have to mention that I am a native English speaker, however, so I don’t know how well non-fluent English-speakers will fare.The A&P section I think was this study guide’s weakness, so I do recommend supplementing it. I’d say that it covered only 2/3 of what I encountered in the A&P section of the HESI; the review didn’t cover ossification or the names of major blood vessels for example, which I did encounter. I suggest memorizing scientific names of parts of the body (e.g. popliteal = behind the knee; brachial = upper arm) since blood vessels are named after those areas. I also had some in-depth questions about the muscular system, so knowing muscle groups and the muscles that comprise them might also be helpful (e.g. the quadriceps femoris muscle group and abdominal muscle group). Luckily, tricky questions that required obscure knowledge were very rare.Nothing can replace a year of A&P and a textbook’s summary/review section, but YouTube, Wikipedia, Google, free apps from Google Play/App Store, and at least a week of prep time will suffice. I don’t think it necessary to buy extra prep material, but people do swear by Pocket Prep and Nursing Hub. Anyone looking for more practice can go ahead and purchase those. As a side note, I also purchased the 2nd edition of McGraw-Hill’s HESI A2 review, but I found it redundant and covered mostly the same things as Elsevier’s study guide. Plus I don’t think it necessary to buy two study guides.To summarize my main study material: Crash Course A&P w/ Hank Green, my A&P textbook, ABC E-Learning’s “HESI A2 Exam Prep Free 2021” app, https://www.hesia2practicetest.com/, and Elsevier’s study guide. Wikipedia can substitute for an A&P textbook, but I’d suggest going to your local library and renting something like
Meh okay, good guide but definitely use other books for more in-depth reviews and the pocket prep app. ALSO I JUST WANT TO POINT OUT TO ANYONE STUDYING FOR THE HESI A2 AS WELL AS TO AMAZON AND THE EDITORS OF THIS BOOK THAT THE INFORMATION HIGHLIGHTED IS INCORRECT SO BE VERY CAREFUL WHEN STUDYING. Granular leukocytes are neutrophils, eosinophils and basophils. Lymphocytes and Monocytes are AGRANULAR.I believe someone else also mentioned it in their review. I just can’t believe the people who make the test would put out a book with incorrect information. 😡
The content of the book seems perfectly fine and includes a single “post test” at the end. There are plenty of practice questions included in each section.*** If purchasing prior to October,2020, please read:Included with a NEW book (which I purchased) is an access code for additional online resources, including 2 practice exams. When I submitted my code, I received a message stating that the content won’t be published until October 4th, 2020. Obviously, this renders this content (which Elsevier charges $35 for as standalone access) completely useless to me since that is 5 months from now. I do not understand why they’d publish a book without the additional content being ready.Fortunately, I contacted Elvesier and they gave me a 4th edition access code.
This book has false information. I am a Hematologist, and Agranular leukocytes are lymphocytes and monocytes. Granular leukocytes include neutrophils, basophils, and eosinophils. Beware as this may not be the only false information provided by this textbook
If you have the 4th edition no need to purchase, its the same information.
I will be taking the hesi a2 before the end of the year and when choosing a study book, i went with the same company that creates the hesi exams. So far I’m only 30 pages in, just math. There are so many grammatical errors. Ok that’s dramatic there’s 5 so far but it’s enough to throw me off. For example, “notice in the example under borrowing from whole numbers that we added 15 to both numerator and denominator…” well this confused me bc the example didn’t include this so i took too much time figuring out what was wrong when it wasn’t me. This book is probably good for those needed just a refresher but i was counting on these expectations. I’ll update review when I’m done with the book and after my exam date:
I preordered this book months ago and the material is good however you don’t get the online resources until October of this year! I think it’s silly to even offer the sale of the book if it’s not going to be at the same time as the resources (practice tests) don’t buy this book unless your ok with waiting all those months. Unfortunately spent more on this book than I should have.
Warning – Access Code is not valid until OCTOBER 2020When I attempted to activate the access code on the Evolve website I was notified that online content was not available until October 2020. Buy the 4th addition if you want online access.
