The TEAS is similar to the ACT or SAT. It has four sections: reading, math, science and English. The study manual from ATI is great and for additional practice I also supplemented with McGraw hill's "5 teas practice tests". The reading and english is pretty straightforward. Math is all by hand and algebraic concepts (proportions, ratios, adding/subtracting, to name a few). Science is pretty broad but heavy on biology concepts with some Chem and scientific reasoning thrown in. My biggest advice is to watch your time and pace yourself!
- 0Feb 18, '13 by angie2424I agree with the comments above. I also found an iphone app for the TEAS test that helped a lot. I was able to take a few practice questions while I was in between classes or before I went to bed each night. I'm not sure if you have an iphone but if you do here is the link.
Good Luck on the test.
