Took practice exam... - page 2

Hi all - I just took the practice TEAS exam at the ATI web-site. It was a package deal when I bought the new study guide. I really can't believe that my test will be as easy as that. Has anyone... Read More

    I thought the science was a breeze. If you've taken your science pre-req's, you should be good to go. :wink2: Even if I hadn't taken them, I still think I could have done better than "okay" with the science.

    The test wants you to think logically. Good luck, but I'm sure you'll do fine.

    Here's some easy stuff to brush up on (and will really get you if you don't):

    Know your metric system equivalents - 2.54cm to 1 inch, how many kilograms in a pound, etc.

    Know how many cups in a pint, pints in a quart, quarts in a gallon

    Know your punctuation - colons, semicolons, comma usages etc.

    :bowingpur Thank you Landshark...Believe it or not, I was sitting here practicing metric/english conversions when I got the email about your reply I have the pint/quart/gallon thing down pretty tight. The thing that frightens me is percentages for some reason. Not basic stuff, but percent increases/decreases. I am practicing those right now. I have found a few sites that have practice for the grammar/punctuation and have been hitting them hard. I hope that I will be happily posting tomorrow afternoon that I breezed like you If not, I have one more chance to take it.

    Unfortunately, our test is used as admission criteria. You have all these pre-reqs you take and then this test and they assign everything a point value. Currently I have the most points I can get because I have A's in all my pre-reqs. However, the TEAS score is used to decide between candidates with matching points - whoever gets the higher teas points gets in...no pressure or anything

    Anyway, thank you again for the encouragement and the heads-up! I appreciate it!!
