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 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!!

    I 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.

    Hey
    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!
