Studying for my TEAS & the ACT?!

  1. When do you think I should begin studying. I'm taking my ACT in December and I want to take my TEAS around the same time - but I want to fit in time to study for both my ACT and TEAS!

    I'm a Senior in High School and finally got my school down - that I'm POSITIVE I should get into (praying lol) . What do you think I should do? When to begin studying etc? Also how did you do on your TEAS?

    Start studying now, you will feel more confident. Most of the material on both kind of go hand in hand. I made a 81% on reading and 86% on my math and a 22 on my ACT. The ACT seemed harder since it took the longest and its on paper where as the TEAS is on the computer and you know your scores ASAP!

    I didnt know there was nursing programs that required you to take the ACT and TEAS at the same time.

    Anyways I took the ACT to get into a 4 year university and it was extremely easy and I'm not even a good test taker I got a 25 and took it once. I just bought a ACT review book and took the practice test in the book twice.

    For the TEAS I felt it was simple as well esp the Science and Math portion. Basic math and the science questions are easy if you have taken APK and Microbio within a year. If you havent taken college level science and I dont mean AP science classes in high school it might be a little difficult. I would reccomend buying the ATI TEAS study guide book and just focus on that. I just used it for the English portion cuz I suck in English. But the study guide overall I hear is very helpful so look into purchasing it since it pinpoints on key info. But get the ATI version since they are the one who creates the test.
