    Hi, my name is Shayna and I recently went for a job interview at a hospital and was given this test as a “pre-screening” before the interview… Unfortunately, I got a 78% and needed an 80% in order to even interview, but I was invited back to re-test and try again… Anyways I was wondering have you seen any study guides for this test?
