    Dedicated2BaNurse12---Will you be going to Keiser? I am actually scheduled to take my exam on Saturday. Have you taken the online tests on the ATI website? I did and they helped me out a lot. After speaking with the admissions counslor the online practice test is almost exact (type of questions) that you will see on the actual test. My scores for Reading and grammar were really low in the beginning. I have been studying really hard off the book and getting lessons online thru you-tube. I have also been looking over different sites for tips on how to spot different texts for Identifying, with regards to reading. You can also research grammar worksheets with answers to self test online. I hope you do well.

    I'm scheduled to take my TEAS test tomorrow..I haven't been able to get a study guide, and am only taking this test with a few days to study...Anyone have any websites that are good study tools, tips on what to expect, and anyother advice that might help!

    Also I am applying for the LVN program at NCTC and I was wondering how do you know if you need your Hep B shot...I got it when I was a baby, does that still count?

    Check your immunization records for the full series. I only got one of the shots when I was 10 so I'm doing the whole series now. A titer confirms your Hep B vaccine plus all the others, so I'd imagine that's what your school will require to prove the presence of antibodies.

    As for the TEAS, you can buy an online practice exam from ATI testing. That will probably give you the best idea of how the test is formatted and what to expect. And keep an eye on the clock during the test! That's a huge factor. Good luck!

    So Happy to say I passed the TEAS exam and I am scheduled to take my first class next month!!! Looks like I will be graduating in Dec of 2013. I know the next year and a half will be exciting and challenging but it is all worth it.

    My advice for anyone that is about to take the exam, get the ATI book, you need to understand all the concepts within reading, science and math. Science is very difficult and on the actual exam, to me, read like stereo instructions. Honestly I would not have been able to do it without that book. While the online ATI tests were useful, the test was much harder. It did not read the same and if you do not totally understand the concepts you will not be able to recognize what they are asking you. I studied for 3 solid weeks about 8 hrs daily, with breaks and I still was not able to score in the 90's, I was close. I am not saying someone can't do it but I am just cautioning those to take this seriously. At my school I only had 2 tries to pass and then I would have to wait 4 months before I could take it again. Out of the 15 people that showed up to take the exam only 6 were new students and 1 woman just got up and left in the middle of the exam due to the difficulty of the exam.

    Hello All. I have purchased the teas v study guide and online practice exams. I felt pretty comfortable with the practice test in the book but the online exams seemed diff/harder and I scored much lower. Does anyone have any tips on what else to study? Especially for math...

    For the Math section you have to know all the problems the ATI book has within it. If you can answer those questions easy then you will be fine. I went online and got brush up's through you-tube and then I also found worksheets online with an answer key for the type of math I was having a hard time with. Understand Polynomials, percent increase/ decrease, algebra basics, inequalities, fractions (mixed numbers, adding, subtracting, dividing and multiplying), roman numerals, basic metric conversions, proportions.

    I took the test twice and keep getting a low score in reading section. I just want to get a review of the actual questions they are asking to see what I am answering correctly and incorrectly regarding the passages. Does anyone remember their answers for the passages? For instance, is there anyway to find out what the correct answers are for the passage questions? Thanks!!

    Didn't you get a print out with what you missed? I got one and it even had the pages on the ATI book where I can review what I did wrong. I'm not retaking it though. Ended up choosing a school that doesn't require the TEAS. Good luck!

    can you please help me with the reading portion of the teas? I fnd it so hard to comprehend. I scored a low average on the reading and it affected the rest of my score. Thanks.

    Did you use the ATI book? They usually give you a print out of what you missed so you can go back and review it.
