    Can anyone please give me an idea of how difficult the TEAS V test really is?

    I have never taken any TEAS test before. So, it will be my first time.

    I tried asking this question a couple times in the TEAS exam help forums but no one responds. And forum activity seems very low.

    Thanks
    I didn't study at all and got an 88.7%. The hardest section for me was the science, but I still scored higher than the national average.

    The first thing is, it depends what kind of test taker YOU are. Everyone is different. I am not the type to remember everything automatically without having to study and do superb on a test, I have to study my butt off to get A's. I personally took the TEAS version V and found the math portion difficult because it's not my strongest subject. I did study from the actual book they sell on the ATI website and thought it was very helpful. I also bought the McGraw test on amazon which consisted of 5 practice tests that had completely different questions than on the ATI website book - so I think studying from both would be helpful. I was able to get above what the nursing programs I was interested in required, which was a 68%.

    Study what you think is your weakest subject(s), take the practice tests, and go from there.

    Good luck!

    I found it to be manageable. I didn't study at all the first time I took it and was surprised with the science difficulty I had. I did great in all the other areas. For the retake, I focused on studying science... I made sure to be familiar with codon sequencing, the way blood flows through the heart, meiosis/mitosis, Punnett squares, calculating different weather temps, why the periodic table is laid out the way it is, etc.

    Math just make sure to be familiar with basic quadratic equations, multiplying/adding/subtracting/dividing fractions, PEMDAS, percentages and decimals.

    Good luck!

    For science (which I found to be the hardest) make sure to be familiar with codon sequencing, the way blood flows through the heart, meiosis/mitosis, Punnett squares, calculating different weather temps (they give you the formula), why the periodic table is laid out the way it is, etc. Math make sure to be familiar with basic quadratic equations, multiplying/adding/subtracting/dividing fractions, PEMDAS, percentages and decimals. Good luck!

    I agree completely with this and can only add photosynthesis to the list. What goes on, what goes in, what comes out, Etc. oh also study eukaryotes and prokaryotes and the parts of the cells (and what each does) and what the difference is between different types of cells.

    I just took this test two days ago and got an 83.3, but I studied two days before and didnt cover each section well. Reading for me was frustrating since it had long passages to read, and I was nervous so couldnt concentrate that well and scored 78% . Math wasn't too bad so I got a 90 and 92 in science which was a breeze!! I got a 70 in grammar and mainly lost points on spelling and punctuation. I dont know, maybe if I studied grammar and practiced reading I'd do better, but since english is my second language then that could be the case. I am wondering if I should retake this test and try to improve my reading and english scores, but I dont know if itll be worth it.

    Laura never returned to her on thread - to update us; how rude.

    Whether you should re-take it or not depends exclusively on whether you need to or not. You need to know what scores your nursing program requires; if you already got them, then don't bother re-taking it, but if you don't have them, then re-take it.
