Practices tests vs the real thing

  1. 0 How do the practice tests on the ATI website compare to the real TEAS V? I just took version a and did terrible and I have to take the real one on Thursday which doesn't give me much more time to study as I work full time and have a 4 year old son!

    I did better on the actual test than the ati online practices. I scored about 7 points higher overall on the real thing.

    Thank you! This makes me feel a little better, but still stressed out of my mind lol. If I don't pass it tomorrow I have to wait almost a year to take it and apply!

    ^^ niiice!!! was the science part on the actual test like the one on the online practice test? bc in the practice test there was a bunch of stuff not even covered in the book! I feel they should at least cover it If they're gonna throw it at you. We spend all this money and they still can't give us all the required material in the book... Bogus!

    Yes, the science was similar! I only had 2 basic A&P questions while the others were chemistry, biology, and microbiology related.

    In my experience I did not have any questions on my Teas that I did not see in my study guide... But others had a different experience... I had to focus on chemistry and life science because that was the hardest- everything else I did good on!

    I had much more specific questions than what were in the study guide-don't read to much into them. I had a couple of them regarding very specific diseases. FYI, though, I thought the science reasoning and chemistry questions were MUCH easier than the (online) practice tests. The life and human body science ones were more on par, maybe just a little bit easier.

    So I took the test on Saturday and it's true, they go more into depth. the passages were longer ( I took the computer version) the math, I had more algebra than expected and also a lot of word problems which made me lose some time :/ ugh! but the science and English are closer to the book just like I said, if you know respiration, know It backwards and forwards. By the Way I got an ugly score of 74

    Was the 74 high enough to get into your program?

    The thing is I really don't have a program I'm applying to yet. I live in San Diego Ca and everything is pretty much closed for transfer students bc of the budget cuts . I rather not wait till fall of 2013 to apply. So I'm looking out of state. I want to get started already. I have a 3.0 and my pre preqs are 3.2. I know my gpa ain't the best but I had a hard couple of semesters my first couple semesters do to the fact my brother had just been murdered. That's why I got into nursing the first place. I have a Biig drive and I just need 1 school to give me a chance to prove how much potential I really have you know. I plan on taking the teas again next month, this time be a little quicker. The thing was , when I times myself at home I managed to always have extra time. But what threw me off was the passages were a bit longer and a lot more math-word problems. But no excuses right ^_^ it's all part of the game gotta bite the bullet and hit it hard , I mean hard-er lol best of luck to all u applying or taking the teas test soon )
