HESI A2 Study Guide Customer Success Stories

Our customers love the tutorial videos from Mometrix Academy that we have incorporated into our HESI A2 test study guide. The HESI A2 Secrets Study Guide reviews below are examples of customer experiences.

I was quite impressed with this study guide. It doesn't mess about and gets straight to the point. I would prefer to read this guide that's put together without fluff, three or four times, without having to wade through unnecessarily flowery chapter introductions and conclusions I've seen in other guides. I just need to ace this test. The beginning of the guide also offers and equally terse, yet helpful, general test taking guide and list of tricks and pitfalls built into the HESI A2.

This book is awesome, I would rate this product as a 5 all because I was sold after viewing the information on this website. After going through some of the study questions I knew I had to get the book. After viewing the book I noticed that some of the similar information in the book that helps to answer the questions on the website. I think this book will be very helpful to my success on this test. Thank you for this product of motivation.

HESI A2 Study Guide – Tracy

Very informative and sophisticated approach to successfully taking the HESI. The book is written in a very detailed way but also in a format that is easy to understand with information that is easy to retain (if using the book's methodology correctly). The book literally covers everything about it and answered many of my questions that I had, it definitely relieved me of much apprehension about taking the test and I know I will do much better now that I am much more informed due to reading this. There are a lot of great test taking tips and techniques and I found many things that I haven't seen in the 2 previous HESI books that I had read before this, it definitely stands out to me and went way above and beyond my expectations

HESI A2 Study Guide – Lucidity

I was very satisfied with this e-book! I applied to a nursing school and found out that I needed to take the A2 within 10 days of applying. I needed a study guide right away, and ordering an actual book was not an option for me. I couldn't afford to pay the extra money to have it shipped overnight. I ordered the e-book and it went directly to my computer. I started studying the same day I schedule my test date. This study guide was extremely helpful, and without it I don't think I would have passed the A2 with such a good score. I passed it with an above average score the first (and only) time that I took it, surpassing the school's average score, which was lower than the score that was needed to qualify students for admission consideration. Thank you Mometrix!

HESI A2 Study Guide – bournecb

I have really liked this study guide. I was expecting it to be a very thick book that I was going to have to leaf through and try to figure out what to study, but to my surprise it is a very small book. I love that it gets to the point with the contents. I am a person who likes to read things thoroughly, so I love that I can sit down and read this study guide cover to cover and then go back and study with it some more. Over all, I really like this study tool!

HESI A2 Study Guide – Mikala

I am very pleased with HESI A2 Secrets from Mometrix. The book offers direct explanations and suggestions for the test. All content within HESI A2 Secrets has value (no fluff). While some of the content may seem almost elementary (for example, converting decimals to fractions), such refreshers are quite beneficial as I have not had the need to solve such inquires in some time. Humbly, I expect to perform well on the HESI and thank Mometrix for their products. I’m very happy to have purchased HESI A2 Secrets.

HESI A2 Study Guide – Robert

With this guide, taking the HESI doesn't have to be a terrifying experience. It's natural to be apprehensive when one's future is riding on the results of a single test, but with proper preparation a person can relax, knowing that they're fully ready to meet the challenge. A central part of the necessary preparation is to make use of a top notch HESI study guide, and this one would be an excellent choice. It's written on a level that allows everyone to benefit from it. It's scholarly enough to handle the material, but conversational enough that a person doesn't have to be an intellectual to absorb the contents. It also covers all the bases when it comes to helping a student learn the material that is actually going to be on the test, which allows a person to focus on reviewing the things that can really impact their score, instead of getting bogged down by trying to brush up on everything they've learned up until this point, no matter how trivial. It's possible to spend more for a study guide for the HESI, and to find one that's longer. But neither one is necessary. HESI A2 Secrets Study Guide is more than adequate for preparing for the test, and I recommend it to everyone.

HESI A2 Study Guide – Jean

This study guide is a key to me passing the Hesi test so that I can apply to the nursing program this following semester. I really liked the test taking tips. As I am not the greatest when it comes to taking tests. I tend to get nervous and freak out. So any kind of tips to help ease my anxiety is greatly appreciated. It's been a while that I have gone over all these subjects so the way it's broken down is amazing.

HESI A2 Study Guide – Maria

I definitely rate it 5 because the tips and ideas for how to study and just other ideas of what will be needed for my test are extremely helpful. Some of the things I would not have even thought about before going in to my test. I have really enjoyed the practice tests and all the codes along the way to go online for more information on. I have found it very helpful if there is something I find I need a little more help with. I feel like I will be well prepared for my test when the day comes!

HESI A2 Study Guide – Customer

I recently purchased HESI A2 Secrets Study Guide: HESI A2 Test Review for the Health Education Systems. This study guide is DEEP! It's very in depth yet simple to understand. I was really surprised with how they could take such a complex exam, and make it honestly VERY, VERY easy!! They pack a very large amount of content in only 179 pages. It really helped me reach my goals for the test, and I ended up passing with flying colors. I bought this along side the flashcards because I was worried I wouldn't be able to pass. It's well worth it!! So good it almost feels like cheating!! So glad I made these purchases!

They break the test down into it's sections.




-Anatomy and Physiology

-Professional Practice

It then has a TON, and I mean a TON of test taking tips and strategies! It really made a difference for mean. I couldn't recommend these enough! It's a great buy for those of us who have trouble taking test and NEED to pass!

HESI A2 Study Guide – Calvin

It isn’t easy finding the right study guide or other product for the A2 exam. There are quite a few to choose from, but many of them are more like textbooks than study guides. I wanted something that was both in depth, but manageable, and easy to use and understand. Turns out, this is the book I was looking for. I have to admit I was hesitant to get it at first, because there are so many choices I was worried about not picking the right one, but finally decided I’d go with this book. I’m glad I did. If you’re worried that it’s not comprehensive enough and that you need a 600 page study guide that could double as a doorstop, you can relax. Like they used to say in the old spaghetti sauce commercial, “It’s in here.” The instructional portion of the guide has been researched and written professionally, and it’s quite extensive in its coverage. It’s sort of the Goldilocks approach to prepping for the A2 – not so little information that you’re left scratching hour head, and not so much that you’re overwhelmed and lost, but just the right amount of review to get you up to speed. Plus, there’s a great practice test included with answer explanations – so it’s pretty thorough. If you want to pass the A2, you won’t go wrong getting this study guide.
