the TEAS V is SO much more difficult than the HESI. i didnt have to take the vocbulary, chem, bio, or physics part,. i had to take the critical thinking part though. here is my rating compared for HESI & TEAS V
< = harder
HESI Math < TEAS V (even though im pretty good in math, so the math on both tests wasnt too hard. the hardest part about the math on the HESI is you have to memorize all of your conversions, and the hardest part about the TEAS V math is you can't use a calculator)
HESI Grammer < TEAS English & Language....HESI was basic elementary grammer but the TEAS wasnt a joke
HESI Reading< TEAS Reading.....by far the TEAS was alot harder on this section. i didnt even look over any practice ready for the HESI and made a 86 on the section
HESI Anatomy & Physiology = TEAS Anatomy & Physiology....since TEAS has a science with chem, bio, physics, anatomy & physiology, and since i didnt take all those parts on the HESI i can only compare to two A&P sections. find you a good study good that goes beyond the basics for science for the HESI & the TEAS V.....as you already know, the science for TEAS was really random, which made it difficult for me
& if you are taking the critical thinking section, just put yourself into a nurses shoes, and pick the best choice based on guidelines and do's and dont's of a nurse, and patient priority.
