Hello everyone! I'm taking the TEAS test tomorrow morning, and I was just wondering what your experiences were with this test, and if you have any advice? I am particularly nervous about the science... Read More

    I got 93.5% composite (99% nationwide/program).
    Wow, you should be very proud of yourself! The advisor for my program says that 94 was their highest, at least in this filing application period. I'm just so glad that it overwith and I can move on. You deserve to treat yourself with a score like that!

    Thanks! Unfortunately, it seems that most of the programs I'm applying to for spring don't actually take the TEAS score into account as long as you pass, so I'm not sure it's going to help. But it did feel good!

    Please what is the site that you found to be helpful for the TEAS exam? I am taking my test next month and have been studying hard. I bought the study guide from ATI and want to go through as many study information as possible. Please help,

    Thank you, Will

    I just took the Teas test yesterday June 17th, 2010 - I only reviewed the reading section of the TEAS Study guide
    and decided to wing it - I have never taking Biology or Chem - only A&P 1 and 2 and Microbiology.
    I scored 90% on the reading, 72% math, 60% on Science and 71% on English.

    I notice a few people posted their Reading scores, but in my school the one that counts is the
    Adjusted Individual Total Score which mine was only: 73.5 -

    I had al least 10 minutes left in each area - I moved fast and a lot of the math is simple math (addition) and
    you can do that in your head - however where it got me was the percentage questions. I got 1 order of operation question and 1 rectangle
    cut diagonally to figure out - no pre-algebra at all.

    Most of the math questions I found were just reasoning: example starts with 'draw a figure, now draw do this, do that then turn to __ degree and chose picture below'. I a few measuring problems also.

    The Science I guessed my way thru it - I just looked thru the Teas book and i only see a few of the items I saw int the
    test - I will purchase the online Teas test in couple weeks and re-test and I will post how I did.

    If I was to do it again, I would had prepared for the English and math better - and that would have
    made my Adjusted total score higher

    I took it today. I considered it a waste of 2 hours. My school makes accepted students take the test to make sure nobody needs remedial math or something like that. I hate standardized tests because they are such drudgery. I didn't study as I am confident that I know Algebra.

    94% raw score (99 percentile)

    It wasn't too hard... those fretting: you don't need a calculator for it as there is no complex math. You really don't even need scratch paper. The reading section was the hardest just because there are multiple correct answers and you have to pick what you think the test writers consider the most correct answer.

    I got a 94%/99th percentile. Just get the ATI Version V study guide and go through that for practice. Know your conversions, F to C, milli, deci, centi, etc.

    The test has a few really poorly written questions on it. One of my questions had answer b) and answer d) the same thing, so obviously I chose another letter.

    I had a question where it asks for the antonym of "vigorously" the correct answer.."carelessly" hmmmm?

    i'm a Registerd Medical Assistant of 12 yrs. Have always dreamed of being a nurse,so I have finally decided to go to LPN.I have been doing alot of research on what I need to study to pass the TEAS test. I have been out of school for over 20 yrs and math was my weakest subject only because i didnt give a crap and pay attention.I dropped out in the middle of the 10th grade. I am now study for my GED and I have found that I am really catching on to the simple stuff (fractions,decimals,ratios,conversions,ect) Iv'e also been learning dosage calculations. What I don't understand is why do you have to learn the algebra,geometry,ect. Never have I had to use this in my field. It's not like I'm going to school to be a scientist or chemical engineer. Any advise on this?

    There are a couple of questions on the TEAS that ask about rocks and fault zones. I think the main reason they ask these types of questions (along with geometry, etc.) is because these things were taught to everyone in Jr. High and High School. The testers probably want to see how much info. we retain from a long time ago (long term memory).

    Hello everyone! I am trying to get into the LPN program and had taken my TEAS exam last week, I passed everything except my science portion by 5.5% and I had written down some of the questions that were troublesome to me and was wondering if the TEAS retake is the same test? I am freaking out I study so much I dream about it!

    I just retook the TEAS V 2 day ago. It is not EXACT same questions, but you will see some of questions from your first test. I think maybe about 25% same questions. I think the ATI study guide do cover a lot of questions. We just have to study everything more not only questions that we miss first time. But if you said you study so much, I think you will be fine. GOOD LUCK

    If I get the version 5 study guide would it be good the ver.4 test (the reading, math, and english) portion?
