HOBET V Exam

One of the prerequisites for admission into the professional phase of some of the health science programs is the Health Occupations Basic Entrance Test (HOBET V). The HOBET V should not be scheduled until the semester prior to applying for admission to the professional program and following completion of all basic studies requirements. Each program has additional individual requirements. RADT students must have successfully completed Intermediate Algebra. PTA recommends completion of Intermediate Algebra prior to testing. It is recommended that students complete program science requirements prior to testing for an enhanced degree of success.

Each student must pay the testing fee ($40) at the Bookstore and schedule a testing time with The Testing Center by calling (870) 864-7196. The Testing Center will give each student a copy of their scores upon completion of the test. This copy will be signed, dated, and stamped.

HOBET V Study Guides:
The Learning Center and the Library both have copies of the HOBET V study guides/manuals available for student use but not for check out. If you wish to purchase a copy of the HOBET V study manual (ISBN # 978-1-933107-97-4) it is on sale at the SouthArk Bookstore for approximately $70.00.
