Kaplan Nursing School Entrance Exam Reading Math Writing Science
Math: SUPER easy. All fractions (add, subtract, multiply, divide), percentage conversions, percentage calculations, and a couple of nursing dosage calculations (given this much medicine at this rate of flow, how many minutes should you give this medicine if patient needs to receive this amount)
Writing/Grammar: Long passages to read just like the reading comprehension. It asked questions like: look at sentences 4, 7, 9, 13 – which one has a subject/verb that do not agree or which of the following sentences has the comma in the wrong place. There were also a couple that said where should the following sentence be added in the passage to clarify information.
Science: This was the hardest one for me because there were only 20 questions but 5-6 systems that were covered so there really wasn’t a good way to study. I read through my A&P notes 2 times and really made sure to pay attention to the major points in each and that’s all I did. Some of the questions that I can remember (these aren’t exact but the main ideas):
* What are the three compartments in the body where water is held?
* Which of the following statements is the primary function of the circulatory system?
* Which body system is the main system used for the homeostasis of pH?
* Where does oxygen exchange take place?
* If a person has chronic hypertension, which of the following illustrates problems in their vascular system?
