Schoolcraft College - page 2

Is 4 years worth the wait? Do you think they will ever change to competitive admissions? I almost started there like 4 times but kept being iffy about it because of the wait. If it is 4 years,... Read More

    A&P 237 & 238 are significantly more in depth classes. They were specifically designed for people getting into the medical field, so I would recommend taking those over 236.

    I got the McGraw book for the TEAS and found it to be a great prep for what was on the test. It was only $12 or so on Amazon. The science is hard, especially if you haven't had a chem, or A&P class recently. I took the test twice, just so I could score better on the science.

    Forgot to mention - as far as the test being timed... You take it all at once. So if you get done with something, you just keep going. In total I think they give you 4-5 hours? But I was done in about 1-1.5 hrs both times. Its really not that bad.

    I too would recommend AP I & II, especially since often BIO 236 (the combined course) does not transfer to other schools. As for the TEAS, strategically, I would sign up to take it just as I was finishing/finished BIO 237 so that you can get on that list as soon as possible. Like I said, the test dates fill up quickly. I believe I signed up and paid for my test in April and I couldn't take it until November which was fine for me because I was finishing up BIO 236 and Chem in December so I could apply to the program as soon as grade were posted (btw, you need to schedule an appointment with the adviser for the day the grades are posted to do this).

    The TEAS. Well I didn't take the prep course, but I did have the study guide. Everything is timed and I finished all sections, with the exception of the math portion, with time to spare. The math section just tripped me up because I obsessively recheck my answers, so I am pokey. Mostly I know that if I breeze thru any math, I make silly mistakes. I did manage to finish with an score well above the minimum in one attempt with minimal studying.

    Just take a deep breath and relax before the test. I'm not all that keen on taking tests, especially timed tests, but ultimately to get your license you are going to have to take a big timed test. Best to work up your nerve with practice now ;o)

    Oh! I didn't take the TEAS at Schoolcraft - I took it through one of ATI's testing sites. It was more money, but there are a LOT more date & time options. When I asked SC about how to send my scores to them, the nursing dept said I could just bring them in one day. So that's another option if you can't get into one of SC's testing times.

    Schoolcraft College allows taking it at the ATI testing site? Don't they require only two attempts? How many times did you take the TEAS test? Was one time enough for you?

    Is TEAS kind of similar to the GED test? I have a high school diploma, didn't take GED just wondering.... lol. I'm not good at test taking.

    How do you know if the TEAS tests times are filled or not on Schoolcraft College's website? Is there a way to check?

    ATI has a company they work with (and shoot, I cannot think of what it's called. I'll see if I can figure it out!) that I tested through. I was actually testing to apply to Davenport, which is why I went through ATI. I'm currently a SC student, so I talked with them about getting on their waitlist (as my backup plan), and asked how to send my TEAS scores. I ended up taking it twice. I applied for early decision to Davenport, wasn't accepted for early decision, but they looked at me again for regular admissions. When they told me I was accepted for early decision, they recommended taking the TEAS a second time to up my scores. I took the test twice total, mainly to raise my science score.

    Call the nursing dept about scheduling your TEAS. Actually, I think they have some of that info on their website.

    Truthfully, the study guides for the TEAS help a lot. The McGraw book was the only one I had and I went through, completed the practice tests and then focused on the areas that I was weakest. I read through it all, but I spent more time really looking at the places I wanted to improve my scores.
