    The TEAS and Kaplan are obviously two different tests, but probably along the same lines. They're both nursing school entrance exams, so I think they would both test basic essential skills in english, reading, math, and the sciences.

    As far as a thorough study guide, I have yet to hear of one. I bought the Kaplan book, and it doesn't even list the Kaplan exam as one they cover! Crazy stuff.

    Hello!!! Gosh, reading this post brings back memories. I was accepted for the nursing program and will start Fall 2012. I just finished buying books and lets just say things are pretty expensive, but expected. There is a Kaplan study guide you can buy in the books store for $20.00 but I am selling mine for $10. The math in the study guide is harder than the actual test. The test consists of adding and multiplying fractions and solving for (X). Nothing hard about the math at all. If you have a decent grade in College Algebra you should be fine. There is a writing section that is not included in the study guide. That section covers verb tenses, verb agreements, punctuation, which sentence in the paragraph should be excluded and which sentence should be added. The study guide has a section that reviews synonyms and antonyms. Disregard that section because it will not be on the test. The reading of course is the same. Just read passages and answer questions. The science is more in depth than the study guide actually covers. KEEP your AP2 study guide and study the physiology portion of it prior to taking the test. If anyone has any questions, I will gladly answer them.

    Thank you for that information Kamecee. I am a bit leary about appying any further as I am pessimistic, and my gpa is only 3.33. I have since looked into other programs that cost more, but are more reassuring. I do hope to have a choice between Gwinnett Tech and the other schools, but I will just have to see. I will get that study guide and thank goodness I have my textbooks : )

    Hello all! This is so crazy because through all the mess going on in the real world I am just now getting back on here! So sorry for never keeping in contact but if you knew what was going on you would all be like holy cow?!?!?! LOL well anyways. I started this feed so we could all work together and I am sure at some point many of us have crossed paths. I learned today how they calculate scores after the Kaplan with your GPA to know what you rank among others applying. We should try meeting up at some point to study the exam reviews together! I am so excited to be back. Hope we can all truly get connected. Keep me updated everyone! Good Luck to all gunning for 2014!

    Hey girl. I just wanted to say, thanks for everything. I followed your first chats when you and your other co-hopefuls were testing. You have been doing wonders and easing my stress day by day with the info you and others have been supplying. How is your program btw? any stories, or tips for those going in? How about those with a toddler? Mine will be at the childcare center on campus. God bless you and your class. I sure hope I rock this exam come test day. Fingers crossed

    @ Blue Felt Fedora: Where are you in your program as of now? Do you have any tips you can share as far as GPA and Kaplan acceptance scores. How many were in hopefuls last year? I have a 4.0, bought a book called 'Forgotten Algebra', which seems to teach like a teacher on basics of what math section on Kaplan covers. Thinking of buying McGraw Hill Study guide for writing section since I heard it wasn't in Kaplan book. I also have the Kaplan book for the reading portion. Using AP2 lecture notes as well. Congrats to you as well. I saw you many times in 2013 thread and if I'm not totally mistaken, the year before that as well. Glad we have peeps who succeeded coming back to help us new hopefuls. God bless you guys for that btw, all I have left is Micro for application purposes.....

    I start the program next week! I'm stoked. I'm nervous. I'm terrified. I'm ready to go. ;-)

    For us, you had to score at least a 75 on the Kaplan to even be considered. I can't remember exactly how many people received the eligibility email to sit for the Kaplan (which just means they had stated their intention, completed the required pre-requisites, and have the minimum GPA), but I think it was at least a couple hundred. I have heard that of those who took the Kaplan, only 80 scored high enough to be considered for the program. 62 of those received acceptance letters.

    I thought the math section of the Kaplan was the easiest one. It was mostly decimals and fractions. Very little algebra, and only one or two word problems. You are allowed to use the calculator provided on the computer. If you took the COMPASS exam at GTC -- the Kaplan is administered in the same room.

    The writing section was surprisingly tough, and I say that as somebody who considers herself strong in grammar and writing. I'm not sure how one would actually study for the writing section. The reading section is very much like what is in the Kaplan guide. I would say the science is nothing like the Kaplan guide. Study your A&P II lecture notes and make sure you understand the physiology and application. Wrote memory won't do it for this section. It's all about understanding and application. Check the old Kaplan thread from March. Many of the posts were deleted, but I believe some guideline posts remain.

    Good luck with micro! Just keep your nose to the grindstone, and you'll be fine. Will you be taking Human Pathophysiology in the spring?

    I think so. I want to so full time in Jan so i can afford childcare on campus. I'm thinking pathophysiology, human development, speech, and composition 2. I am worried about the writing and depth for anatomy. When it says nervous system for example, Idk if its that one section, or brain nervius, and all the other chapters. Maybe I should send Mrs "You know who" an email? Don't get me wrong, a and p were easy. But i wanna know how to manage my study time

    I am registered to take human patho, human development, humanities and english 1102. Do you advise against taking on that much while studying for the kaplan? Im only doing full time so when my tuition assistance spot on the waiting list for the education center comes, ill be eligible to register my son.
