TEAS V Questions

  1. 0
    Hi Everyone!
    I was wondering if anyone can please tell me how much chemistry is on the TEAS? I have the ATI study guide but am curious to know if the information they provide in the book is enough for the exam or if I should look for other supplementary study guides?
    Thank you for your help!!

    If I were you, I'd gte other books besides just the ATI. Not that that book isn't helpful; it is, but you should try getting the McGraw Hill Nursing Entrance Exam study book. I have the whole PDF if you would like. I can email it to you. It has 433 pages, but it's worth it. I read every single page--you'd be shocked on how quick you can go thorugh the pages. If you're the type who takes your time to study, and you study that PDF with ATI, you should be okay.

    As far as the sceince/chemistry portion--to be honest, science is SO extremely random. Ridiculously random. At the end of the test, they will give you a remediation paper. It will tell you which sections you go wrong. For instance say there was a question on the test about punnet squares and it asked you something like--If a Heterozygous and a Homozygous mated, what would the offspring have--and you answered it wrong, that paper will tell you that you have to go back and read up on Punnet Squares and it;ll tell you the page number in the ATI manual. You'd think it's helpful, but like I said the test is SO RANDOM. SO it will have a question about one of the topics covered in ATI, except SO MUCH MORE IN DEPTH. The ATI wouldn't cover half of what they asked in one question, you know? So even if you seen the question you got wrong [which you won't] and went back to the page number it says to turn to, you still wouldn't find the answer. Some tests are more skewed towwards CHEM, others aren't. Mine didn't have many questions about chem, and if it did it was very basic.

    So I suggest getting the McGraw Hill. Maybe your Library has it.

    I took 2 versions of the TEAS V exam and on the first one I did not have a lot of chemistry, but on the second one I did. everything was pretty basic (proton, neutron, electron, types of bonding/what happens, valence electrons, atomic mass, mass number etc.) but I had finished my CHEM pre-req not too long ago so the information was still fresh. I only used the ATI study guide and thought it prepared me well enough for the CHEM portion of the science.

    It is NOT enough! You need to understand vaporization in a way that isn't even in the study guide. Basically you just really need to "understand" everything in order to answer the questions correctly. All of the answers on some questions seem like they could be correct. The science section was ridiculous, but take both of the practice assessments from the ATI Testing website and you should be okay. There was a lot of Chemistry on my test. Also, watch YouTube videos on chemical bonding, meiosis and mitosis, etc.

    Great advice especially about the youtube videos. I didn't even think of that. Thank you!

    Hi everyone,

    Just a follow up email to let you know that I have not yet received the PDF. When (if) I do I will try to forward it out to those who have asked for it depending on the copyright laws. I am not sure what this PDF version is exactly but if it is okay to reprint and/or forward I will do so.

    I took the TEAS V exam today and don't think I did very well. I got a 71% and am now trying to decide if I should retake it or not. My school will use the LATEST score not necessarily the BEST score for determining who gets into the program. I could use any study guides that are floating around out there. Mainly I need those on science and math as those were my weakest areas. I did 100% on the reading and english sections. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!P.S. my email is caldwellkramer@yahoo.com

    I used secrets to the TEAS V study guide and practice tests. From everything I am finding out online, all the study guides seem to be lacking in the science portion. That is what I did the worst on. However, I just spoke to a friend that got into the school that I am applying to (She turned them down) and she said she only scored a 74 and she is an awesome student with a 3.75 GPA (mine is 3.61). So who knows, maybe I am freaking over nothing.
