I notice that this book has a mistake on the math section. On page 36.
1pound = 2.2 kilogram ( incorrect)
1 pound = 0.45359237 kilogram.

A wonderful investment for taking the HESI. All topics are reviewed and there are test questions. Check with your school to see what portions they will test you on, my school does not test chemistry, physics, or grammer.
