Practice Tests Are Harder Than The Real One!

  1. 5
    I am so happy I can't contain it.
    I took the TEAS V yesterday and I was so nervous because I was scoring in the 70% range for the practice tests. They were so hard for me! So don't be discouraged because I sure was!

    The real test wasn't near as hard! And I had plenty of time to review my answers.
    I got a 91%!!!! I am so happy!!!

    I must add that I used the TEAS V study package and everything on the test was covered on there from front to back in some way.

    Now for the three month waiting period to hear if I got accepted

    No I didn't use the McGraw Hill. I used ATI's because they are the ones who make the test

    I had the book in my room for about a year and only looked at it for the week before the test! Lol! I went over almost every single page except for several in the science section which I regret because that was the section I did the worst on.

    When it was things that I thought I would know already, I would do the practice questions and if I got them right I wouldn't really pay much attention to the lesson unless I knew I needed review.

    English is my first and only language and the grammar was quite challenging as well!

    I took both the practice tests online. I got a 70 and 74 on them. Scared me to death! I also got 70s on the two in the back of the study manual. I think I did so well on the real one because I really took my time and focused and relaxed.

    Good luck to you use that book!!!!

    totally agree!
    I used the ATI study book and bought two online tests. I was scoring ~80% in the practices. I ended up getting a 94%.

    Lat night I took practice test A and I had an overall score of ~80% but my science score was 60%. I'm really freaking out. How much better do people do on the real TEAS test compared to the practice test?

    Awesome Job Texasgirl22! I feel the same way....scoring a little lower than I would have hoped on the practice exams. But, from what I am hearing the majority are stating the practice exams are more difficult than the real exam. By all means, that does NOT mean I am going to slack. I take mine soon and I am def taking this seriously....I'm gonna go back and study those topics completely!

    Oh my God...this is me lol. I ordered my manual directly from the website last March and am scheduled to take my exam this Sunday. I literally just started studying hardcore about two weeks ago lol. I've looked at it off and on when I have had downtime, but it has been extremely hard, as I have been in school continuously (taking pretty much a full load) and have been studying for other classes. I am using the manual as a refresher now that I have finished my pre-reqs, and I feel pretty good about it after reading many reviews like this. Preparation is key. I used the ATI manual, reviewed more in-depth for science using Youtube videos (Khan academy) and purchased some very cheap study review cards from my school library (they are these large laminated cards..kind of reminiscent of a diner menu in size and length and have basically everything you need to know about a particular subject. I purchsed three for science and math. They are great!!) This has been my prep so far, and it seems to be working. I'll know for sure after next week.
