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.
