Teas V exam, didn't go so well...

  1. 0 I took the Teas V exam yesterday, and i thought i had it. I only had less than a week to prepare. I had the ATI study guide and it helped refresh my memory with math. During the math portion of the actual test there was a lot of word problems and i started spending too much time on questions that i simply ran out of time, i didnt even have time to even guess.. it just shut me off and brought me to the next section. After that i just wanted to cry, i knew in my mind that i had already failed and it affected my work on the other sections.. Science was hard, i did well on the humany body. my weakness was math and science. Im depressed that i did this to myself. So many people told me not to worry about the TEAS and shouldn't even study for it.. I wished i had more time to prepare myself. Now i have to do remediation in order for me to take the Teas again. I just feel very discouraged, i cried all day. I felt so dumb.

    thank you, i feel a little better day by day. some of my friends have told me they know people who did not pass the first time, had to do remediation and are now doing well in the nursing program, so that makes me feel a whole lot better. You're going to do great this time.. study hard.

    I feel the same way! My school requires individual test scores for each subject area...I passed all except the Math part. I am aware that I'm weak in Math, so I studied the ATI book as a refresher and still failed. I'm currently reviewing using Davis's Basic Math Review for Nurses and so far I am grasping the subject more. Hopefully, I will pass Math when I retake it in a few days! I hope you will pass as well.....let's not give up on our dream of being Nurses! Good luck to you!

    This can only make you a stronger student. Keep brushing up on your skills in the meantime and next time it will be a breeze

    Did you take it @ LAHC? I took it there on Friday

    I took the TEAS the first time and got a national average score which was lower than my school expected. I brushed up on the reading and science section. I took it again 6 months later. My 80% in Reading went to a 92%. My 70% in English went to a 80%, and my overall went up to a 77% which is not the highest but it met my schools requirement. I felt bad too, but retook it and entered nursing school and graduates cum Laude. And now I sign the RN behind my name. You can do it just study harder this time.

    I am not sure if you retook the TEAS yet but I have to say I did poorly on my first one and was pretty upset as well. But I bought some study books for the TEAS and studied and did a bunch of mock questions. The math was hard for me the first time but the second I was more refreshed on fractions, dividing and everything I have relied on a calculator to do. If you study you will do great. Wish you the best of luck.

    Hey. I'm sorry you didn't do as well as you hoped. I recommend taking more time to study and maybe try building your math skills from the ground up. The firmer your foundation, the better. I used Pre-Algebra Demystified to study and the Khan Academy website and did quite well. Chin up and best of luck to you.
