One multi-part model exam plus many shorter tests within each of this book’s chapters will give prospective nursing school applicants general orientation and solid preparation before they take an actual nursing school entrance exam. While each entrance exam given by nursing schools throughout the country will vary in topics covered, this manual offers comprehensive coverage of virtually all possible topics. Prospective nursing students will value the authors’ detailed description of the nursing profession, its duties, responsibilities, and satisfactions. That discussion is followed by a self-assessment questionnaire to help readers decide if nursing is the right career choice for them. The manual also provides test-taking strategies designed to enhance study skills and reasoning ability that will be useful in any test situation. Also presented is a subject review that covers a range of testable topics: verbal skill-building, reading comprehension, math, and science.
