Take the practice test in book.... then read the rationales for the ones you missed. The book is set up to let you know what you need by judging what you are weak in....then go to the units you didn't test knowledge of.
Nursing is not just given to anyone...it is meant to be hard.
I just took the TEAS V last night and absolutely agree with HappyWife77. The most important thing to do is study what you are unfamiliar with and take the practice tests. I'm not strong in math at all. I had to go back and review nearly all of it. However, the math is very basic and comes back easily once you get into it. Just keep practicing if that is an area you are struggling with. The reading is pretty straight forward. Read the questions first, skim the paragraphs, then pay careful attention to what the questions are asking. The vocabulary was pretty easy for me, but I've been an avid reader all my life. I think that's helped throughout the years. Science: what can I say. That was the hardest part for me. I think the only reason I got some of them correct is because I've has some A&P this semester. I've had some chemistry this semester too, but I'm sure that's the section of questions I flopped on the TEAS. I honestly hate that class. Anyways, the science is very basic. Things to know that will also help with related questions: DNA, meiosis, mitosis, respiration, cell structure, and topics from general biology like kingdom, phylum, etc. I had a couple earth science questions. Know directional terms of A&P. Best for A&P review is the endocrine system because of hormones and glands; anatomy of it, as well as physiology. However, you may get questions regarding other systems. All tests are different. Overall, my experience with the test went quite well. We had to score a 57 overall and I got a 77. I know that's lower than many other schools
, but it is a "Proficient" score. Just to let you know, I was not an A student in high school (mostly Cs and Ds as a matter-of-fact) and in college, I had to do a couple developmental math courses before I got into Math 101; our basic college-level math which is the equivalent of high school Algebra 1. It's been a tough road, but persistence and studying pays off. I didn't mean to get into a long spiel, just wanted to let you know passing is possible. Don't review things you already know and practice what you don't
