TEAS V - page 5

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... Read More

    I just took the TEAS V and I only used the Mcgraw-Hill book from 2008-2009 that I found online in a PDF for free. I am guessing that the ATI book probably does a better job in showing you how the questions are worded,because alot of the questions on the test seemed harder than in the Mcgraw-Hill book I used. I will break it down like this:

    Reading I am strong in,but on the test there are alot of questions where 2 or even 3 of the answers could actually be right(somebody else mentioned this in another TEAS V thread).
    Math I am very strong in and got a 90. But I was surprised at how they made a simple question harder than it needed to be. Oh yeah,by the way I did have basic geometry on my test. I have seen alot of people saying it wasn't on there. I had about 4 questions.


    Spelling is easy,like 3 questions.
    Vocab(synonyms) had about 7 questions. 2 of the exact questions for vocab were already mentioned in one of these TEAS V threads and another 3 came straight out of the Mcgraw-Hill book.
    Science I am terrible at, I got a 58. I didn't even bother trying to learn chemistry or physics in the short time I had. I knew my strong scores on the rest of the test would be enough for the school I am going too. I did study some anatomy and biology from the book. Some of the exact questions for anatomy and the cells came right out of the Mcgraw-Hill book.
    If anybody has questions, go ahead and ask. I just registered, so I don't think that I have enough posts to PM.

    I took the TEAS V last Friday, my overall score was 90% ... awesome! The ATI study guide was great, it's pretty much all I used to prepare for the test.

    Oooh, I just noticed this is my 1,000th post! Nice

    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!

    Hey Miggs.... what did u use to study for this test?

    Well, I just got back from taking the TEAS V. I'm pretty disappointed with my results after seeing the above posts stating in the 80-90% range. I got a 76% overall. I only needed a 58% for my program, but I really wanted to at least be in the 80% range.

    I took version 4 in August, and got a much better score (85%) but that was without the Science portion, because that particular school was for LPN and did not require the science score.

    I studied for both tests using the ATI Version V manual. I bought and took both online practice tests before taking Version 4 in August, and I did a lot better on those than I did on the Version V today. I also used the 2 practice tests in the back of the book, and scored slightly higher on those compared with my real score on Version V.

    To be quite honest, I studied for about a week for the Version 4 using the Version V manual in August, so when I found out that I would have to re-take the test for this new school I'm applying to and it would be Version V, I felt that I did not need to study that much more, since I felt really prepared for Version 4. I was definitely wrong! I was pretty shocked at the level of difficulty on the reading portion, which is usually a breeze for me (I still got a 90%, but it was more challenging than the study guide). Math is always the hardest for me, and if I would have studied longer, I would have done better. I actually found the Science portion to be pretty dead on to what I studied in both the manual, and using this school's science powerpoint's: http://www.science-class.net/Teacher...tm#LifeScience (unfortunately, I have a HUGE problem retaining science information, so everything I studied was on the test but I couldn't remember the answers- awesome.) Spelling/Language was the easiest part. If I wouldn't have bombed the science so bad (56%) I could've reached my goal in the 80's, but...oh well. I HIGHLY recommend reading through every single one of those powerpoints I posted above, because almost all of those subjects were covered in the science section (not so much earth science/rocks, like on the version 4). Good luck everyone!

    Funny how I experienced the opposite. My scores in reading for the practice tests ranged from 73 to 80 but on the actual test I scored a 90. There is one passage in one of the study manual tests involving a UFO that I totally bombed with the questions. On the real test however the passages were quite straightforward and the questions were too. I thought the reading in the manual and practice tests were harder.

    I am so hoping this is the case for me too. I am scheduled to take this tomorrow morning and have been studying with the ATI manual for about 2 weeks. I've taken the manual's practice tests over and over and am still scoring only in the mid to upper 80's. I just can't seem to grasp the whole theme/topic thing. I am so frustrated because I've always had really great English grades.

    The school I'm applying to only looks at the reading scores but they cut off at 80% on the applications, so I NEED to get a decent score tomorrow. Wish me luck!

    Best of luck! Though I hate wishing people luck that know their stuff, don't need it! I am confident you will do better than you think. The real test did not seem as bad as the books. Would love to hear how everything went.

    I passed!!!!

    Took the test this morning and made a 90.5! I'm so relieved. My school only requires the reading portion, but they cut off acceptance starting at 87.5% and you can only take the test one time. I was seriously nauseous this morning and slept very badly last night. I studied with the ATI V book for 2 weeks, took the practice tests and questions in the book over and over again.

    I agree with the other posters that said the online test was easier for me than the book pre-tests. This is only for the READING section though, I'm unfamiliar with the other sections. For the reading section only, study: main ideas, vocabulary, cause-effect/sequence/problem-solution structures, and read each passage very critically.

    Good luck to everyone preparing to take this test!

    See? I told you you did not need luck ... Good job!

    As for the rest of the test, I feel the same as the reading, it's easier than the practice tests! I found the science much easier ... got 60% on the online practice test for that section and on the real test I got 87%. So yeah, really. Just use that lousy manual, it's all you need ...

    Hey, Paco69! Great job on your TEAS! I'm shooting for a 90 as well, but I got mid 80's on all 4 of the practice tests! I'm getting so frustrated!

    I've been asking around to see if the test allows you to recheck your answers if you have extra time in a section. I noticed you said you didn't think you would use the alotted time. Do you remember if it is possible to go back and recheck/change answers within a subject?

    Thanks! And again, congratulations!

    Thanks!! Feels good to get that test over with! It really wasn't that bad, I was not stressed at all.

    The test does allow you to recheck your answers. You have BACK and NEXT buttons and you are able to navigate back and forth between pages in the section. Whenever I was done with a section and I had extra time, I would go back and forth between pages just to double check my answers. A couple of times I did in fact change answers upon second review, and there were times I left blanks so I did not lose time and then I went back to them later. This only works within ONE section at a time though, so for instance once you submit your reading answers and start on the math section, you cannot go back to reading.

    The ONE section I did not have a lot of time to review my answers was the math section. I think I had about 3 minutes left at the end of that one, so I did not get to recheck much. Ironically, math was my highest score out of the 4 sections.

    If you're scoring mid 80s on your practice tests, you should be fine. I was scoring high 70s and low 80s on my practice tests. The real test seemed easier than the practice tests to be honest. Get a good night's sleep and you will be in good shape for the test!!
