    I think I did pretty well and I just used the same study guide I had for the HESI. My advice would be go through it and answer as many question as you can at first and skip any you get stuck on, because if you have time left over it will let you go back within the section. I reviewed my A&P and Chemistry notes but I agree, a lot of the science was stuff I vaguely remember studying in 7th grade bio and in high school physics

    would you say that the science part is really hard and does the teas test have a lot of biology in it and what are some of the question they ask about biology and science

    Science was fairly simplistic overall. A lot of scientific methods/procedures, only one or two anatomical/physiological questions that I remember. I have taken it twice and both were similar in structure. The science portion was I believe one of the shortest sections.

    I am also new to this site and was wondering if anyone could tell me if there are a lot of word problems on the TEAS test. I do not do well with these types of math problems.
    thanks

    yes quite a few for math and Science. Get the ATI study guide and study it!

    Hello, I took the TEAS twice and the hardest part was the Math section. Not because it was particularly advanced, but because of the limited time. You should know metric conversions, multiplication, division, fractions, ratios, and there was at least one question on cups,quarts, pints, gallons conversions. Most importantly: take at most 2-3 minutes per problem, if you can't solve it quickly move on, and at the end take an educated guess. You don't want to leave blanks, but you don't have time to solve, check and recheck your answers. Also if you can backsolve or if you can find the answer without completing the whole calculation, do it. For instance, you have four answers all ending with a different digit, and you can get the answer by multiplying two large numbers, but if you just do the multiplication to get the ending digit and it matches one of the answers, you don't need to go on and solve the whole thing. I hope that makes sense. Best of luck to you.

    I took the TEAS on 1/3/08. It definitely was not as bad as I thought that it would be. Like everyone has been saying definitely brush up on math.

    From what I've heard there's not a specific passing score (I'm sure the higher the better)...but it depends more on what your school wants and how competitive the program is.
