Science portion of TEAS
- 0Feb 27, '09 by kneecole06I am going to be taking the TEAS for my 1st time in about a week. Can someone tell me what areas of science to really focus on that has already taken the test? I've also heard there are several questions in reference to scientific reasoning on there....can you give me examples of how these go?
- 4Feb 28, '09 by Daytonitethe test covers four general areas: math, reading, english and science.
- math covers whole numbers, metric conversion, fractions, decimals, algebraic equations, percentages, and ratio/proportion
- reading covers paragraph comprehension, passage comprehension, and inferences/conclusions
- english covers knowledge of punctuation, grammar, sentence structure, contextual words and spelling
- science covers science reasoning, science knowledge, biology, chemistry, anatomy and physiology, basic physical principles and general science

- 7Mar 2, '09 by kneecole06Just for anyone that reads this post and needs a brush-up on all the high school learned basics of science, I found these sites that are wonderful!
Go to physics4kids.com and in the right-hand margin there's also links to there other sites (i.e. biology4kids, chemistry4kids, etc.). And since these sites are made for young students, the info is put in very plain English. I've found it really helpful in my studying for the TEAS!
- 1Jun 4, '09 by TallyncI am really worried about the science portion myself. It has been 8 years since I have taken a real science course (my high school allowed you to take forensic science in place of chemistry) and it is going to be my weakest point. I am extremely rusty as my Kaplan study guide showed me. These websites, geography4kids.com, etc. will be a fantastic refresher. Simple english to bring it all back, hopefully.
Just wanted to say THANK YOU! for the helpful sites!
- 0Jun 10, '09 by SeymaTheres only 30 questions on the science portion of the TEAS and it covers a little bit of everything...chemistry, physics, physiology, geology, microbiology. Most of my questions were on chemistry and geology but there are multiple versions of the TEAS test so I'm just basing it off my version. Everyone seems to have mixed feelings about the test. It's very generalized test that asked a lot of questions that nursing students wouldn't need to know. If it makes you feel better, the average science grade on the TEAS is about 60% and there are other areas to make up for points. I wish you luck. Take your time and just relax. I was so nervous the night before...and a few days after...I didn't even want to check my score but I passed.
- 0Jun 10, '09 by lesnict25i took teas test a month ago, science portion has very few questions, i had one chemistry question and maybe 5 anatomy questions... basic staff, so don't stress yourself like i did, don't waste your time on that. a lot of math, especially word problems, i hate word problems. :uhoh21:with that said i passed the test, thanks god.
