To get practice exams for the HESI clinical calculations test, visit websites such as Exam Edge or Mighty Nurse. According to Exam Edge, people can order practice HESI, or Health Education Systems Incorporated, tests. On the Mighty Nurse website, visitors can answer free practice questions.
The practice tests from Exam Edge look and feel like actual HESI tests, according to its official website. These tests have the same number of questions and cover the same topics including roman numerals, fractions, ratios and proportions, children's dosages and more. With these computer-based tests, test takers can adjust their time limits to match the actual test to try to improve their speed and accuracy.
The main difference between practice tests and real tests is that practice tests provide students with the answers and explanations they need to fully master the subject material, explains Exam Edge. As of 2015, purchasing five practice tests costs less than taking the real HESI test once, and then failing it and having to retake it.
Students can also answer weekly NCLEX/HESI contest questions on the Mighty Nurse website. Although these are not practice tests, these competitions help many students master the material on their upcoming tests and also give them the chance to win free stuff.
