Preparing for Teas V (need some advice)
- 2Aug 16, '12 by tikyutI currently have 5 classes left to finish all my prereqs for a BSN nursing program starting in summer 2013 - Organic chemistry, Microbiology, Statistics, Intro to critical thinking and Developmental psychology. I need to take these classes this fall and spring but I'm a mother of 3 little ones so I don't like to take too many classes together. Plus I have to prepare and take the Teas V and TOEFL test before February 1st.
I would like some advice on how you think I should pair these classes.
I am currently enrolled to take Chemistry and microbiology this fall.
Do you think I will have time to prepare Teas V while taking these classes? or will taking them benefit my knowledge for the test.
How much organic chemistry and Micro is in the Teas V exam?
I already paid for the Teas test but have not scheduled a date yet. (Sorry for all the questions at once - just need a little advice pls))Last edit by Joe V on Aug 16, '12 : Reason: spacing

Best advice I can offer for TEAS V--Get the Study Manual which ATI publishes (Vers. V), available at bookstores; and carefully work your way thru it. Be sure to cover all 4 sections thoroughly.
Also, take the 2 practice exams which are in the Study Manual. Take the time to absorb everything you can from the Manual.
If you don't see any questions from a particular field, it probably won't get much coverage on the actual test--altho some have recently remarked on-line that their tests supposedly had many questions not covered in the Manual at all. This has not been my experience, tho.
The Manual offers good preparation for the subjects and types of questions on the exam, altho the exam questions may need closer reading and attention than those in the manual.
Hope this helps.
(I'm being careful here to follow the TEAS section's guidelines--not discussing actual questions, or any copyrighted material.)
- 1Aug 18, '12 by zoe92I recommend Chemistry and statistics with developmental psychology for the fall then take microbiology and intro to critical thinking. Chemistry and statistics are work but they are much easier together than pairing either with microbiology. I think you will have time to study for the TEAS, go to quizlet.com for ready made flash cards and use the ATI study guide as well. I take the TEAs Wednesday and this is what I have been doing. Good luck to you!
- 0Aug 19, '12 by tikyutThank you all for your help. I decided to go with Chem and statistics because organic chem was my weakest when I took chem 1 and statistics seems like a load of work and I also want to have time to prepare Teas and still manage my family. Thanks for helping me make that decision.
