What level math does it go up too??
Thats what Im most worried about. I know there's a study manual too, but I was just wondering if anyone who took it can remember what it was like?? Is this a hard test? or basic stuff?
I took my TEAS this past Wednesday. In the Math portion
: You need to know how to add fractions such as, 3 1/2 + 3 3/4=. And 5 1/4 (division sign) 3 3/4= where you change the division sign to a multiplication sign and change mixed fraction to an improper fraction and reverse(reciprocol) 3 3/4 to 4/15 and cross multiply. Pretty straight forward. The test was neutral, it wasn't hard. You'll be okay, I did so much better at the end of the test because I was relaxed, believe me it matters a lot, you do so much better. Worrying can actually make you do worse on a test. I'm telling you this because I didn't do well on the reading section which happened to be the first part of the test. The reading
seemed easier to me than anything else, but once again I was worried at first, which caused me to score really low. Keep that in mind. The passages were very short, which makes it less stressful. Learn the metric system
such as, 2.2lbs=1kg; 1 mile=5,280 ft; 1qt=2 cups. 1kg=1000g. 100cm=1m, and so on. Oh by the way, I missed about 20 questions on the math portion, because there wasn't enough time left, so if by any chance you have a minute left and you have 15 quest. left to answer then just choose the letter C for the rest of the questions, there is no penalty for guessing so it's not going to hurt your score. Big mistake I made. There is also an Essay after the computerized test. The essay question
I got was, "What inspired you to get you bachelor's in nursing, what accomplishments you've had and why you want to be a nurse". I believe everyone got the same essay question. When you finish, the person in charge of the tests will sit down with you and discuss your score. They seem to be more worried about the reading comprehension, so study that too, don't neglect it like I did, because I thought it was going to be a breeze, It seemed really easy on the test, but I was more worried about taking the math and science sections. Don't neglect any part of the test. Study the manual, and if you don't understand a specific subject find another book that will help you understand the material better. For the math section I used the NET study guide, it helped me a lot. For the english grammer I used my college english book. Study 3 months ahead
before you take the test. I did and I still felt that I needed more time, but I also felt more confident. Get away from your house, and study at the library
by yourself for atleast 4 hours or as much as you can. Walk out of the library for 10 minutes, get some fresh air and come back for a couple of more hours. You'll get more done that way. When you really want something you'll give it that extra push. Imagine about getting into the program it'll make you work harder. If you have any more questions write back.
