    Hello ALL!!!! How is everyone?? I have a quick question! I am applying to Bevill for the fall 2011 semester! I know they said we have to take the TEAS V test befor entering the program. I was wondering how does this process work??? I mean do they send you a letter saying your excepted then you take the test? Or do they send you a letter saying when the test is available to take and then you take it? Im curious about this because I really should study a little for it!!!

    Thanks so much in advance guys!!!!

    Not sure how they do it now, but when I entered, the COMPASS test ws required to apply. It had to be taken before your application was accepted.

    From what I understand the deadline to apply for the Fall is Apr. 1.

    You have to be accepted to take the TEAS V test, you should find out sometime in April I believe. We took our TEAD test May 25th last year

    What is the process to fill the seats now? They invite 200 people to take the TEAS test to fill 150 seats, or do they invite 150 people to take the TEAS test hoping they all pass it?

    Hey you all! I applied to bevill to for the fall, but I got accepted to jeff state for the summer so if I get accepted I'm just gonna give up my spot. With the teas test it's not so much hard- it's just stuff that is tested to see if u have a knack for retaining information long term. The test is mostly comprised of stuff like middle and high school math, reading, English and science.I feel like the science us a little difficult because it's stuff that we haven't SEEN in a long time. Especially wince the nursing pre req list is anatomy and micro. The science part particularly is hard because it's not anatomy or stuff That mainly comprises the test( it's only like 3 or 4 questions related to anatomy) it's stuff like geology, chemistry and physical science is heavily used on the test basically if you took physical science in wether highschool or first semester of college you'll do good on the test because physical science combines geology, chemistry, biology, ect... A little micro is on the test to. The first time I took the teas test I made a 64%. I bought the study guide off ati.com and I used it for a week and increased my score to a 72.7%. I took my test the second time at wallace in hanceville. I would highly suggest buying the study manual. It's $85 bucks for the packet, but it comes with the study book and 2 practice test. Practice test A is to take before you start studying to let you know where you are before you start using the study manual and practice test B is to let you know where you are after you have been studying the manual. Hopes this helps!!

    I heard their not even accepting many people this year. A advisor told me 100 max for each campus. I thing they're probally gonna test 150 though.

    Futurernjap pretty much summed up the test, that is all right. There were I think 125 questions? Is that right? I purchased the $40 teas v practice book and I made 82% first time. The book did really help, some of those exact questions were on the test, I remember particularly a math question about painters lol it was kinda confusing to me but bc I had the book I was able to get it right. I don't know that the $80 one is really necessary, but I guess it depends on how much practice you want to get in. There are practice tests you cantake online for free and the $40 book is nothing but questions anyways. (from what I remember). I just sold mine so I can't really remember.

    Lol your right. At the time I took my teas test, the teas v had just came out( I took mine like in september of last year) so if free practice test existed I didn't know about it! Lol. I think the study manual is $35 itself.
