Hello everyone, The TEAS sticky is great for general TEAS questions, but I wanted to start a more specific TEAS thread for TEAS V. For anyone who has taken both 4.0 and V, was there a big difference? If so what are the... Read More

**Can anyone who got a 66.7% Adjusted Individual Total Score or thereabouts... and whose TEAS Score Report reads "Program Type: BSN" let me know what their "Percentile Rank - Program" is? Thanks!!**

We are waiting for the school that my husband applied to do some kind of conversion, since he took it at a community college and they assigned him a Program Type of PN. This affects the scoring of his Percentile Rank - Program - which is all he needs to figure out to see if he can get into the program. (ATI isn't much help on this unless you're calling from a school.) - 0Mar 4, '12 by EllenaMarieCan anyone that has already taken the exam let me know is the math portion of the test really difficult. I know there are a lot of fractions from what everyone is saying in this forum, but is it basic fractions? Like if I am familiar and good with basic adding, subtracting, multiplying, and division of fractions should I be ok? Are the fraction questions in the ATI study manual close to the equations I should see on the actual test. Thank you so much!!!!
- 0Mar 5, '12 by willowitayes, the math questions in the ati study book are the same kind of questions on the exam. not the exact same ones, but the same kind of math.

the fractions are basic. adding, multiplying, subtracting, dividing, mixed fractions to imperfect fractions (or vice versa). maybe the toughest fraction questions just ask which fraction is larger. or they'll give you a string of numbers, including decimals, and they'll ask you to put them in order of smallest to largest.

the algebra consists of absolute values and adding or multiplying polynomials. all stuff you can do without a calculator. - 0Mar 6, '12 by EllenaMariewillowita--Thank you so much!! I am really good at that math now. I have been studying for a week straight and got all those type of problems figured out. Do you have any tips for the other portions of the exam... At my school we are required to score a 76 in Reading, 75 in Math, 56 in Science, and a 70 in English. I am going through the science portion now and boy oh boy is that tough. Not the concept just memorization. I am writing notes on the most important topics and concepts. Hopefully in 3 weeks I will be ready to take the test.
- 0Mar 6, '12 by willowitaIn all honesty, I think the biggest factor is keeping track of the time. I was slow in the reading section because I kept going back and re-reading passages. When they called that 5 minutes were left I still had about 7 more questions. So I had to rush through those and I'm sure I made careless mistakes. Same thing with the math. So learn to manage the time they give you and not to spend too much on any one question. And if you do run out of time, just bubble something in. Better to have a 1 in 4 chance than no chance of being right.

For the science, I'd say that if you've taken chem, A&P, and bio then you should be fine. For chem, just make sure you know the basics (how many electrons and protons are in a specific element, what the subatomic particles are, what an isotope is) plus a little about hydrocarbons, solubility, alkenes, and alkynes. A&P info is just about how systems work. Not as detailed as an A&P class. Bio questions cover organelles of a cell, the scientific method, scientific reasoning, knowledge about DNA and RNA, prokaryote vs eukaryote, phenotype/genotype, and figuring out how many offspring will get either a dominant or recessive gene. This is all in the ATI book.

I hope this helps and good luck! - 0Mar 6, '12 by Julissa8202Quote from Future Nurse's WifeHi all I took the TEAS this past saturday. I DID NOT study because I took this as a practice even tho I did buy the two practice tests online. I wanted to see where I stand and what I need to focus on based on other people in my school.

Future Nurse here are my scores:

**Program Type:**BSN

**Adjusted Individual Total Score:**66.7%

**ATI Academic Preparedness Level:**Proficient

**Mean - National:**64.3%

**Mean - Program:**70.6%

**Percentile Rank - National -**56

**Percentile Rank - Program -**36

**Reading Adjusted Individual Score**73.8%

**Mathematics A.I.S.**83.3%

**Science A.I.S.**52.1%

**English and Language Usage A.I.S.**66.0%

The Math part I left 4 blank my time ran out. Science was tough I haven't taken science in a year. English I deff have to read over. Now time to study for this test I have till June 7 to learn everything I can. - 0Mar 6, '12 by chel89I haven't had math in a while, just wondering if anyone can help me understand the rules for Order of Operations better? I know PEMDAS. The example in ATI book pg. 50.. #1 says to solve for -2(3-5+2).

So following PEMDAS, I begin with the parenthesis..but I don't get why subtract first and not add?

I know that sometimes you just solve from left to right..but if the problem had said "5x2" instead of "5+2"..then I'd be using PEMDAS. Really confused..

thanks! - 0Mar 6, '12 by willowitaIf you have a mix of addition and subtraction, doesn't matter how it's arranged, always go from left to right. You don't add first or subtract first. You just take it left to right.

Going from L to R in the parenthesis we have 3-5 is -2, +2 is 0. Now you can multiply this answer by -2, which gives you 0.

The problem with adding 5+2 is that the number in the problem is not 5, it is -5. So if you added the 5+2, you're ignoring the sign and you'll have a different answer. So just take it L to R and you'll be good. - 0Mar 7, '12 by EllenaMariewillowita- Thank you so much for your help. In my school I have to score a 56% on science, 75% on Math, 75% Reading, 70% in grammar. We are not required to score high in science due to not taking the pre-reqs first. I am almost there I took 2 practice tests in science and I am scoring 70 and 74%. Math I am on the button but I have a friend tutoring me with a few of the equations. My biggest thing will probably be English... i am going to brush up on that over the next 2 weeks and I should be good for the test. Thanks again and I will let you know how I do on the exam!!!
