I took TEAS in early December. It was much easier than I thought it would be after looking at the review book. The math, English & reading comp was very much like the review book. The science was much more general than the questions in the review book. Pay close attention to the review questions that talk about setting up an experiment - how would you prove...., how would you find out...., etc.
Most of the other people taking the exam said they had trouble finishing the math questions, so be sure you spend a lot of time reviewing math skills!! Before having my daughters I was an engineer, so the math was the easiest part for me.
When I took the exam, we were told that people who do well on the exam are more likely to do well in nursing school
. I've heard that the school I'm applying to attend has had a lot of trouble in the past with students dropping out of their program soon after they begin because the work is too much for them. The admissions committee uses the TEAS to help them decide who might be better suited to their program.
I got a 91 on the exam, which was 99th percentile for the nation and for the program to which I'm applying. I hope to hear from them soon!!
Let me know if you have any more questions!
