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

    I took the 4.0 on the computer and I assume it would be the same as 5.0 and yes you are able to move ahead with time remaining there is a place on the bottom right that takes you to the next section. You don't have to be there the whole 3 1/2 hrs unless you want to.

    Oh good, thank you. I am pretty sure I won't need the entire time alloted for the English section and the Reading one, based on the questions I have done it's going to be OK. I rather save my energy for the math and science

    good job!! I got mine today !!!
    Adjusted Individual Total Score: 76.0%
    ATI Academic
    Preparedness Level:
    Proficient
    Mean - National:
    63.3%

    Mean - Program:
    68.9%

    Percentile Rank - National:
    83

    Percentile Rank - Program: 70

    I dont know how school evaluates the score. A friend going to Clayton State University told me that they go by individual section. Every single section must be higher than the mean national program. I dont know if it is true. BTW, I am applying to GPC, Kennesaw State, and North Georgia College and State University. Any one share experience in how school interpret TEAS V score, please!!

    Hello everyone. I took my TEAS V exam on Tuesday, September 21, 2010. It is a very reasonable exam. The chemistry on it is not difficult at all - just playing the numbers game with balancing equations. The math is also very easy too.

    My advice is to read carefully. It's all about how it is worded. I scored in the 97th percentile nationally and I have to say, I purchased the review book but it wasn't very helpful. Please do not waste the $40.00 - I highly advise to purchase only if you have not done math or science in a very long time.

    Good luck everyone and I hope this information was helpful!

    OK so as a pretest to determine what I need to study, I have completed the 4 sections of the 1st practice test in the TEAS V study manual (leaving part 2 and one of the online tests as simulated ones for later). I was not surprised at the questions I got wrong, as they reflect material (particularly in science) that I have not seen in a while - so now I know what to study. I was however surprised that I got 27 out of 30 correct in the math section (90%) and I found most of the problems quite simple. One question on perimeter I got wrong as a stupid misreading error on my part. The other two were genuine topics I need to review.

    Is the math section REALLY this simple and straightforward?? I am afraid that there may be other topics that I should know.

    From what I remember, the math is pretty straightforward. The problems cover numbers and operations, algebraic applications, data interpretation and measurement. There's no need to memorize conversions as those are given to you when needed.

    I think the online practice assessments offered by ATI prepared you the best in terms of format and types of questions that will be on the test (especially with the wording of the questions). I thought that the practice exams in the manual were okay, but that the reading questions in the manual were much more difficult than on the online practice test or even on the actual test.

    When doing the practice tests, I found my biggest mistake was in misreading the questions. So I would suggest reading carefully and take your time!

    Is it safe to say that there is no geometry on the TEAS? I did not see it covered in the study guide, yet I am using another book for review as well that has questions on circumference.

    I don't believe there is any geometry. I don't remember there being any.

    I had the same question. I also have another study guide that has a lot of geometry in it. I just ordered the TEAS V study guide from Amazon for $22. I am taking the test at the end of this month. The math part without a calculator scares me. I can do math, I'm just not very fast!
