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 differences?
Is it okay to use the 4.0 study guide for V?
Did you take the online practice exams for both? Is it worth it to take the V practice exam if you have already taken 4.0 at least once.
If you took the V practice exams, how was it? Would you recommend it?
Please list anything else that is helpful.

I just took the version V test on Friday, it was my first time taking a TEAS and I passed. There are different scores and percentages for your grade but my school went by Percentile Rank; they want a 40% or higher and I got a 90 (total shock). I thought it was very difficult and was surpised I did pass. I was actually thinking my dreams of a nurse were shot during the exam b/c of the difficulty I was having.
There are 2 practice exams in the back of the manual.
I didn't buy the online tests, I really didn't have the time with 4 kids and add in the procrastinating I did with studying. If you understand most of the stuff in the manual you should do fine. I will say that the questions are more involved than the manual. Some stuff on the test I had never even heard of and had to make educated guesses.
I bought the manual on campus for about $60 and just saw it on Barnes and Noble for $28. I would recommend buying the online exams after you study the manual and the tests in there. If I had to take it again I would. Also, I saw people recommend a Prenursing study guide by Kaplan; sounds interesting.
