ATI TEAS V Study Guide Bundle - worth it? - page 2

For anyone who has used the ATI guide for the TEAS, is it worth the money? I am considering asking for it for Christmas (the one that includes the two practice tests) but wanted to see if anyone who has actually used it thinks... Read More

    Thanks for that! If the McGraw Hill book has more info than the ATI one sounds like the ATI practice tests with the book I already have may be the way to go. All replies are much appreciated!

    I took the TEAS on the 16th and ALL you need is the ATI book and the online practice test! So in answer to your question, YES! It is absolutely worth it!

    Study the book and the only reason to look at another book is if the ATI book doesn't explain something to your satisfaction. It truly is a review of stuff we all (should have) learned through 12th grade. Although I never had all that Science in my education (Florida Public Schools).

    The real test is exactly like the online practice test! I think I even had a few of the exact questions from the practice test on my actual TEAS test.

    Thank you this helps a lot because I have the teas 5 secret study guide the ati book and the McGraw hill 5 tests book. The ATI book really doesn't seem to be that easy to understand but the secret study guise seems very straightforward and easier I just hope it's not too easy and I will not be ready for the test. Thank you for the info !!!

    I used McGraw hill because it was the cheapest on Amazon and had good reviews, it also had multiple practice tests and had explanations for each question. I got 93% over all and scored in top 1% for my program, and top 1% nationally for all areas except Grammar, I scored in the top 4% or 6% on that one.

    Hello there,

    I just wanted to add my 2 cents.

    I bought the ATI package (when it was on sale, about a year before my TEAS though). I didn't open it or look at it until two weeks before my test. (I don't recommend that, by the way.) I did as another poster did; I took the first online test before cracking open any book or study guide.I then worked on my weakest areas, took the first in-book test about 4 days in, reevaluated and studied, and took the second in-book test about 4 days after the first. I took the second ATI online practice 2 days before the real test.

    ATI Online Pratice Test A:
    Individual Total Score: 68.0%
    Reading: 88.1%
    Math: 56.7%
    Science: 50.0%
    English: 80.0%

    ATI Book Practice Test A:
    Individual Total Score: 79.3%
    Reading: 90.5%
    Math: 80.0%
    Science: 70.8%
    English: 80.0%

    I don't have Book Practice Test B scores anymore.

    ATI Online Practice Test B:
    Individual Total Score: 76.0%
    Reading: 88.1%
    Math: 66.7%
    Science: 68.8%
    English: 80.0%

    ATI Test:
    Individual Total Score: 78.7%
    Reading: 88.1%
    Math: 80.0%
    Science: 68.8%
    English: 80.0%

    The online practice tests were very, very similar to the actual test, and they were harder than the in-book practice tests. They prepare you for time management, AND they give you rationales after each answer. So I recommend them, definitely.
