HESI A2 Practice Tests 2016: 3 HESI Admisison Assessment Exam Practice Tests
HESI A2 Practice Tests 2016: 3 HESI Admisison Assessment Exam Practice Tests

Students preparing for their all-important HESI A2 exam will find intensive test-taking practice in this brand-new book.

    •Three full-length practice exams
    •Exams are similar in length, structure, question type, and degree of difficulty to the actual HESI Admission Assessment
    •All test questions answered and explained

The best way to prepare for your HESI A2 exam is to "Practice, Practice, Practice." In order to do that you need practice tests that match up to the real exam. Each of our three practice tests were developed to be as close as possible to the types of questions that will be on the actual exam.

There are over 800 questions contained on these practice tests, covering Reading Comprehension, Vocabulary and General Knowledge, Grammar, Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry, and Anatomy and Physiology. Detailed answer explanations and an answer key follow each practice test, so you can immediately review and see how well you did on each test and learn from your past mistakes. The practice tests are particularly good at highlighting areas where you may need to spend additional time studying.

Wiley Guide to Chemical Incompatibilities
"This book should be a required reference on the laboratory'ssafety shelf as no where else is so much useful informationavailable in a single volume."
?Inside Laboratory Management, on the Second Edition

"...a portable reference on reactive substances to guide charge of the handling, storage, and transportationof chemical materials."
?Journal of the American Chemical Society, on the SecondEdition

The authoritative resource on dangerous chemical interactionsnow enlarged, revised, and even more useful.

The term "incompatibilities" describes a wide range of chemicalreactions that produce undesirable results in noncontrolledsituations: the generation of toxic gases, fire, explosions,corrosive activity, polymerization, ruptured containers, creationof more dangerous compounds, and the like. A portable andeasy-to-use reference on reactive substances commonly found incommerce, the Wiley Guide to Chemical Incompatibilities, ThirdEdition compiles hard-to-find data on over 11,000 chemicalcompounds, providing chemists, technicians, and engineers athorough, lightning-quick resource to use during experimentalpreparation and in the event of an emergency.

More than a revision of the previous edition, this ThirdEdition has been rewritten and expanded to broaden coverage andimprove its usefulness. It contains nearly 9,000 chemicalincompatibility profiles and nearly 250 new entries, coveringflammability, violent and explosive binary reactions,incompatibilities, and reactions that may result from physicalchange. Alphabetical organization provides concise incompatibilityprofiles for thousands of commonly used commercial chemicals,allowing readers to look up a given substance and instantly learnwhether it is incompatible with common materials, other chemicalsubstances, structural materials, or personal protectiveequipment.

New for the Third Edition:

  • Chemicals that have the potential to cause disasters
  • Chemical formulas and autoignition temperatures
  • More flash points, as well as molecular formulas, lower andupper explosive limits, autoignition temperatures, andNFPA®-type (Red) numerical fire codes
  • Safety reminders
  • All entries keyed by CAS numbers to eliminate possibleconfusion among synonyms
  • Spanish-, French-, and German-language entries forinternational use
  • Revised glossary helps users who may not be chemists withgeneral chemical terms
With thousands of new entries and easy-to-use organization, theThird Edition of the Wiley Guide to ChemicalIncompatibilities remains a handy resource for all safety,first-response, and plant management professionals responsible forthe handling, storage, and conveyance of chemical materials.

What Went Wrong?: Case Histories of Process Plant Disasters and How They Could Have Been Avoided (Butterworth-Heinemann/IChemE)
"What Went Wrong?" has revolutionized the way industry views safety.

The new edition continues and extends the wisdom, innovations and strategies of previous editions, by introducing new material on recent incidents, and adding an extensive new section that shows how many accidents occur through simple miscommunications within the organization, and how strightforward changes in design can often remove or reduce opportunities for human errors.

Kletz' approach to learning as deeply as possible from previous experiences is made yet more valuable in this new edtion, which for the first time brings together the approaches and cases of "What Went Wrong" with the managerially focussed material previously published in "Still Going Wrong". Updated and supplemented with new cases and analysis, this fifth edition is the ultimate resource of experienced based anaylsis and guidance for the safety and loss prevention professionals.

* A million dollar bestseller, this trusted book is updated with new material, including the Texas City and Buncefield incidents, and supplemented by material from Trevor Kletz's 'Still Going Wrong'
* Now presents a complete analysis of the design, operational and for the first time, managerial causes of process plant accidents and disasters, plus their aftermaths
* Case histories illustrate what went wrong, why it went wrong, and then guide readers in how to avoid similar tragedies: learn from the mistakes of others

Guidelines for Initiating Events and Independent Protection Layers in Layer of Protection Analysis
The book is a guide for Layers of Protection Analysis (LOPA)practitioners.   It explains the onion skin modeland in particular, how it relates to the use of LOPA and the needfor non-safety instrumented independent protection layers. Itprovides specific guidance on Independent Protection Layers (IPLs)that are not Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS).  Using theLOPA methodology, companies typically take credit for riskreductions accomplished through non-SIS alternatives; i.e.administrative procedures, equipment design, etc.   Itaddresses issues such as how to ensure the effectiveness andmaintain reliability for administrative controls or“inherently safer, passive” concepts.

This book will address how the fields of Human ReliabilityAnalysis, Fault Tree Analysis, Inherent Safety, Audits andAssessments, Maintenance, and Emergency Response relate to LOPA andSIS. 

The book will separate IPL’s into categories such as thefollowing:

  1. Inherent Safety
    • eliminates a scenario or fundamentally reduces a hazard
  2. Preventive/Proactive
    • prevents initiating event from occurring such as enhancedmaintenance
  3. Preventive/Active
    • stops chain of events after initiating event occurs but beforean incident has occurred such as high level in a tank shutting offthe pump.
  4. Mitigation (active or passive)
    • minimizes impact once an incident has occurred such as closingblock valves once LEL is detected in the dike (active) or the dikepreventing contamination of groundwater (passive).
