Studying for the TEAS Test

  1. Hello!! I'm studying for the TEAS test and wanted to see how the studying was coming for everyone else. I plan on taking the test the beginning of March. I've been studying since November. I'm hoping to score 90 or above the first time around (keeping my fingers crossed). So hopefully, I can get accepted into the LPN program this August. How is studying coming along for the rest of you?

    It's goin'! Tonight I'll be studying "Davis's Basic Math Review for Nurses," amazing book! I've been studying a couple weeks now. How often do you study? What are you covering right now?

    I'm studying as well. I have a headache but for good cause. My husband is deployed and I stay home with my 2 year old daughter. I try to squeeze in as much studying as I can. But when my very active, wild and crazy 9 year old son gets home its quite difficult.

    Wow!! That's a lot of studying!! The Teas really isn't that hard. I have taken some practice tests and there is nothing harder than basic Algebra in the math section, science was a bit tougher with some chemistry, and the reading and vocabulary were a breeze. I will be taking mine at the end of the month. I am applying to the RN program for Fall 2014. I was told anywhere from 80-85 is really good.

    My TEAS exam in next Tuesday (the 21st)! I have been studying/reviewing off and on for a couple weeks but not very seriously since I'm also running around preparing my applications! I actually went to the library and borrowed bunch of high school SAT subject books but the only book I've only been using the McGraw Hill 5 TEAS Practice book, it's a great book!! Other than that, anything topics I don't remember/understand I find it on YouTube.

    Don't overstudy!! What are you doing with all of this?
    I really liked the ATI TEAS V study manual. I got a 96% with it!

    Sorry, but I've never been taught to NOT overstudy. Everybody is different. I agree that there can be too much information to plow through, but your score and your study habits are not indicative for the rest of the world. I agree to stick with the ATI manual, but also, folks need to know where their weaknesses are and when or where they need additional help. I got a tutor to help me through some 5th grade math and I'm sure that other folks with need help with other topics. Don't create rules for others based on your experiences.

    I agree with you. Everyone has to do what's best for them. Not everyone learns at the same pace. Someone people can study a day, another's, a week and so forth. Me personally, I must spend a lot of time studying. I would rather be over prepared than under prepared any day!

    I spent the last 3 weeks studying Kaplan's Nursing Admissions Exam book along with my A & P textbooks, and now moving onto the McGraw-Hill's book as soon as it arrives via mail. The Kaplan book leaves much to be desired because it cuts review of many topics short. Hope the Mcgraw-Hill's book is better!
