HESI A2 Entrance Exam 2020

HESI A2 Entrance Exam Preface: I gathered this information from within an online study group in which many people share questions and advice for test takers. To my knowledge nothing in this document is taken illegally from bought resources and used without permission of the manufactures. PLEASE inform me if this document violates any rules and I will remove it. This is a combination of MANY files and posts within the groups. I had to go through the questions and rewrite for comprehension, reformat for this document, highlight, and change answers from many incorrect ones. This took hours to compile as a one stop document to entirely prepare you for the HESI Exam. That being said: I would not charge for something like this since it is a cumulation of many people's efforts. However, if anyone wants to donate to me for my time and effort as well as the sample study plan at the bottom of the document, it would be very much appreciated!!! My cashapp is $eliarnn.
