HESI Test Prep General Sessions
Presenter: Duane Sowards
Locations Noted in Date

Getting ready to take the HESI admissions exam? Join us for weekly sessions online in Webex or in person at Goodman South or Truax campus.
You will learn what to expect and be ready for exam day in break-out rooms and all together in a large group by:

  • Reviewing the content that appears on the exam such as biology, human physiology, basic math, nursing vocabulary
  • Learning study strategies such as prioritizing what subjects you most need to focus on, taking timed practice exams, understanding the format of the exam, and using flash cards to study

The benefits of group study include instant feedback, hearing other participants’ questions, and practice, practice, practice, to make you comfortable and ready on exam day.
