Teas test in Illinois

  1. 0
    Hi,

    I have to take the Teas test tomorrow and I am not sure what to expect, whether or not I will perform well. And I was just curious where another location in Illinois held the Teas test, if I do have to take it again. Perhaps, some of you who have taken the Teas test already can reveal how the experience was for you. I have the study guide and I did so poorly in the Science portion. Is the Science portion that difficult?

    Thanks,

    Don't worry! Just try to relax. I took the TEAS test last week, and I felt the same way. I was really worried about the math and science. Personally, I felt like the science portion of the test was a lot easier than it was in the study guide. I felt like the question judged your ability to reason more than they did your knowledge of certain concepts. I only recall one question over A&P, and I don't recall any over Micro. A few of the questions had to do with Physical Science (these were the most difficult for me), but just think them through and try to reason them out. On my test, there were no questions on the Rock Cycle or the Hydrologic Cycle even though there was info about it in the study guide. Don't waste your time studying the A&P either. DO look at the question over density (p.146 in the study guide) and the Life Science portion of the study guide. I also recall a question over hypotonic/hypertonic solutions. There were several questions that had to do with reasoning problems associated with biological relationships. These are the ones that show you a diagram/give you a little info and ask you questions based on that. These are found on pp. 114-119 of your study guide. If you take your time, you will do fine. Honestly, the test is not as bad as you think. I personally felt like it was much easier than the study guide. Good luck!!

    Thanks Heloisea, I just took the exam and it was not bad at all. Your advice helped to lessen my fears of the Teas Test.

    For others, I don't think I will need to search for another location about where another Teas is being held, hopefully.
