TEAS V

  1. 0
    I read some posts about the Teas test and some people
    where saying that they were provided with a calculator.
    I took the teas 4 and there was no calculator and I'm actually
    taking the teas 5 this january and I was wondering if anyone
    knew if a calculator was allowed on it. Does anyone know
    how the teas version 5 differs and do you think that I should
    buy a new review book for the teas 5 or just use my teas test
    version 4 study book (kaplan). What's the best study
    resource?

    Hi...I also take the TEAS V in January. I have been doing a lot of reading here and talking to others who have recently taken the exam. I believe most schools will not allow you to use a calc. Also, I have gotten the impression that version V is different/harder than the previous versions, so it might be worth it to buy the newest study guide.
    There are quite a few of threads on here about TEAS V....just do a search and you'll be busy reading for a while.

    Hope this helps! Good luck to you!

    Hello,

    I took the TEAS V on October 15th and the TEAS IV on October 25, 2010. TEAS V was a paper and pencil test, and the science was definitely more difficult than on the TEAS IV. The paper and pencil test was mailed to the ATI Headquarters in Kansas, and scored there. I got my results in one week. (THE WAITING WAS AWFUL!) I was not given the option of a calculator on either test. TEAS IV was computerized, and a bit easier overall, however, I did better on the math and English on version V, and better on science and reading on version IV. I was given the results of the computerized test as soon as I completed it. (Much better!) I studied the Kaplan book, and the ATI verison IV book. Honestly, the ATI online practice tests are all you really need. The practice exams are very similar to the actual exams and, I found them to be very helpful. It was definitely worth the $35 (per version).
    Overall scores: TEAS V 84% "advanced"
    TEAS IV 86.5% (94% national average)

    Hope this helps.

    Good luck!!

    I just took the TEAS V test today and it was computerized.. no calculator was allowed. I think it really depends on where you take it. Also, I used the Barron's study guide mostly and studied the science portion of the Kaplan study guide.

    I got a 92.7% Adjusted Total Score
    ATI Academic Preparedness Level: Exemplary

    99 percentile nationally and within the ADN program.

    I really recommend the Barron's study guide. It makes you work tons of problems throughout the book vs just taking practice tests and the questions are good. Also, the Kaplan nursing study guide really helped my science score. I used it to only study science.

    These books are helpful for cramming if you don't have much time.. I studied for about 2 weeks.

    If you need any tips or anything feel free to message me!

    Good luck to everyone!

    I took the TEAS V last week and scored in the 99th percentile nationally. No calculators allowed, but they do give you plenty of scrap paper. My test was computerized and my results available instantly.

    DON'T use the TEAS version 4 manual to study! It is clearly not geared for the version V test. I recommend (1) getting the TEAS V manual and (2) doing the 2 practice tests in that manual AND buying at least one of the online practice tests (there are two to buy but you only really need one). These tests really give you an idea of what to expect. In my opinion, the practice tests were harder than the real one. Take one of the tests as a diagnostic (preferably the online one since the score report it generates will point out the topics you really need to study in the book), and then take the others under simulated conditions.

    Don't waste your time studying what you already know. In my diagnostic test I scored 100% on Human Body Science, which is basically A&P and I did not bother studying that. Life Science was my weak area so I studied that instead. Still got 100 on Human Body on the real test and my Life Science increased by 20 points.

    I know that teas 4 had more rock science and physics. Teas 5 does not have any rock science and a very small percentage of physics. The online practice test are a great predictor of how well you will do on the actual test. No calculators were allowed! The math is pretty basic. Just need to brush up on a basic algebra, fractions, and word problems (proporitons).

    What was the name of the Kaplan book.. Is it like, nursing entrance test study manual? As far as math, what was the most helpful study manual?

    I don't know about that. I scored a 75% overall on the online practice test and a 90% on the real one. Then again, I did take the practice one as a diagnostic so perhaps that helped?
