The Nurse Aide Assessment Exam consists of 2 parts, the written portion and the skills portion. In order for a student to successfully pass and start working as a CNA, they will have to pass both parts of the exam. In this article we will try and help you ace the written portion through tips and techniques that might help you before and during the exam session.
The final exam will consist of 60 – 70 multiple choice questions which will test you on everything that you have studied. The number of questions and the time allotted will depend on which state you are offering your exam. Always make sure that you are at least 30 minutes early to the exam center and don’t forget to take a valid/current ID card (this can be a state issues ID card, passport or a driver’s license).
Before the Exam:
Here are a few handy pointers to help you plan and better prepare yourself for the final test.
- Skim through your notes before you start studying to give you an idea of the time allocation you will require for each chapter.
- Plan your study time appropriately to allow time for work and commitments.
- Create short notes where appropriate.
- The best exam preparation is by doing past papers. Always do this in exam conditions where by you sit in a quiet room and time yourself while doing the questions to familiarize yourself with the format and how you handle exam pressure.
During the Exam:
It is important to maintain a cool head throughout the exam.
- Make sure you have all your required stationary; it is recommended to take an extra pen and pencil just in case.
- Read each question thoroughly before you attempt it.
- Never rush into the answer without reading the full question, sometimes the question maybe asking something different from what you would otherwise think.
- Don’t leave any questions unanswered. If you do not know the answer move ahead and comeback to the question later on and make sure you answer it. Since its multiple choice questions 1 out of 4 is the right answer and you would be better off taking a chance with an answer rather than leaving it blank.
- Sleep well the night before and have a proper breakfast in the morning before going for your exam.
