    On the Teas you have to have a passing score of a 58.7%.(for Brown Mackie College, I know other schools are higher) If you take it at the school you get your results as soon as you press submit. You don't have to wait a long period of time for your results. I recommend you study from the ATI book. Its about $46 but it so worth it. It give you what you need to study and nothing more or less. I studied for one week with the book and passed it my time. This test is not easy. It is long and stressful but you can get through it.

    How many of you guys too the TEAS test or re-taking the TEAS test ?

    For me it was just to long. The math section I almost ran out of time. I finished with 1 min left. I didn't have enough time to double check my work. The Science was straight forward. The ATI book helped a lot. The practice test basically identical to the actual exam. There was no surprise coming into the test. I recommend the ATI book. I money is worth it.

    I took the TEAS saturday. I studied from the McGrawHill textbook for a month after my final exams. YESSS OMGG it was sooo fast and didn't have anytime to double check work. It was like you either know it or you don't and move on. Your first choice that was it! In my testing I didn't see anyone erasing answers so I assumsed that no one went back. I think the only reason people fail is because there is just not enough time!! That reading section was like are you serious. The reading section shouldv'e been an hr and 20 minutes. Those passages and having to read through the answers were no joke. Two answers sounded the same. I was stuck with eliminating the answers on the reading. Very TRICKY TRICKY.

    I agree! I realized I was running out of time on math so I had to kind of pick and choose which questions I had time to answer. The ones I knew that would take 1+ minutes I had to guess. I hated doing that. So when I got my score with the areas I missed, it was such a disappointment because I knew how to compute those questions, I just didn't have the time. That was the hardest part. I never ran out of time on the practice exams online.

    Honestly I felt the real test was way harder than the practice tests. I scored better on the practice exams in math, reading and english. The only section I did better on the real TEAS vs practice was the science portion, amazingly enough.
