TEAS V - page 6
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
Nov 28, '10Paco69, thank you so much for taking the time to respond so thoroughly! You really put my mind at ease.
Nov 29, '10I have the V4 study book too, but I've mostly just heard the science parts are different, so I've been online trying to go over basic chemistry and such to be more prepared.
Nov 29, '10VERSION 5 ALSO::::
I wanted to ask you how you did so well on your exam. Congrats, that's amazing! I did well in the English and Science but I have to retake the math and reading. What's nice about the program I want to get into @ Adelphi Univeristy in NY is they have a certain passing score for each section, so I didn't pass the reading and math. My question though both times I took the ATI online practice exams and did well both times in the Reading and Math but when I got to the actual test, some of the questions were alot harder. Could you explain to me what strategies you took? Please let me know, I am retaking it the beginning of January and want to kick butt on those 2 sections, it's mostly the second half of the reading section that worries me. I mean I know there were 4 stories having to do with sleep walking, hibernation, migraines, and I think one more. How did you figure out the answer? did you read the questions first and then the story or did you read the story and then the questins, please help us future nurses or past nurses need to stick together. thanks!
Dec 9, '10I don't know about online study sources but I am getting a tutor! I really need to knock this exam out of the park to get accepted! I didn't get accepted this Spring because of a low TEAS score! Yuck!
Dec 11, '10hello everyone!
i posted this somewhere else, but thought maybe i'd have better luck posting it here.
after surfing the web for three days, i've found that many ppl here have the same questions i do. but i still feel the need to ask more i suppose lol b/c i'm freaking out!
i'm scheduled to take the teas on december 27 so i can re-take again before the end of march (if i fail the 1st time) b/c that's my cut off to apply for the nursing program. i honestly don't know where to begin on studying.
i've found the website www.teasprepreview.com and wanted to know what everyone thinks about it?? i'll be taking the teas v.
i've also purchased the mcgraw hill book, and will be getting the teas v study guide on monday. but i think my main question is, what worked best for those of you who struggle with math & science? that will be my main downfall.
i've taken a couple self assesments on the algebra, and rememberd some of the stuff so i don't think the brush up with be to bad with the time i have to study, but i"m soooo scared about the science/chemestry. i haven't had any of those since high school more than 10 years ago!!
any suggestions would be awesome at this point b/c if i take this test twice by the end of march and fail both times, i'm not allowed to take it again for another 2 years!
thank you all in advance and sorry for this being such a long post.
** also, should i memorize all of the elements in the periodic table????
Dec 21, '10Hello everybody.
I am new to this forums but I have been reading for the pass few days. I am going to take TEAS 5 in a few weeks. I have read that a lot of you said the science part for it is ALL OVER THE PLACE. This worries me because I didn't do so well in TEAS 4. My question for those who took TEAS 5 is are there any science topics specify that I should review and study? Thanks
Dec 22, '10Hello, I'm new on here...I'm scheduled to take teas V two weeks from now....I need help...Is teas test V harder than 4?....If it is should I focus on the book or the manuals.
Dec 27, '10TEAS 5 is much harder than TEAS 4! I did ok on TEAS 4 and didn't do so well on TEAS 5. For example, I got a 90% in reading on 4 and got 70% in reading of 5. The questions on 5 seemed to be a little more tricking. I have been studying the guide a little every day. In another week I should be finished the whole book. I am retaking it Feb 5th. My goal is to go through it 1 or 2 more times. I also am scheduled to be tutored by a test prep tutor. I hope this works for me.
As far as focusing on one thing more than the other, I think the test is all over the place. You may want to study as much as you can. What has been working for me is 1 Math assignment and 3 other assignments a day (Reading, Science and English).
I hope this helps.
Jan 5, '11ATI study manual for TEAS V is very useful. I think most of the answers in science section are in the book. Just make sure you read every page. After the test I checked some questions that I think I might got them wrong and I found that all of the answers is in the ATI book which I just skipped it or didn't pay attention enough.
The science questions are only test on topics which in the ATI manual V; it will tell you how many questions on each topic.
I have McGraw Hill book as well, but the science questions in this book is much easier than TEAS V. I definitely recommend ATI manual V for preparing yourself for the TEAS V.
