I read over and took notes over it and still wasn't doing well on the Science practice questions, So I got McGraw Hills Nursing School Entrance Exams to help. I feel it gives you a better understanding of the science and it covers the same areas that are in the TEAS V. In the front page of the TEAS book it tells you how many questions are on the test and how many questions in each subject they're gonna ask you. Go on youtube and watch a few videos. I found those to be help as well in letting you know what was going to be on the exam. There is also a site called kahnacademy that helps in all subject areas, and it may give you a better understanding of some of the areas of science. I take my Test Feb 13! Also take a few of the TEAS V practice tests from the ATI site, and there is a site called Benchprep that gives TEAS V practice tests.
- 0Feb 11, '13 by sammiechan5I recently took my first TEAS V exam and I failed.
I got a 51.9% and need a 62% I only had a week to study because that's what the school had given me a weeks worth to study for the exam. I have now entered a remediation plan before I take the TEAS V once more. Any advice? This test is really important to me because my spot for the Rio Hondo nursing program is secured so long as I pass the exam

You are allowed to take it 2-times per session/year so if you did not do well the first time i suggest you take it a 2nd time and focus on the area you scored least. The test result will tell you exactly which subject to focus on and will even tell you the page # to study on the ATI Review book...hope this helps.

The good news is I have a very good chance of getting into a local LVN program. Good luck to everyone else as you take the TEAS test and apply to your programs.
