I took the teas test twice and couldn't meet the required score which is 60 % for reading and i think this is most challenging and tricky section of the test. I think i can really use some advice from whoever took the test and passed it, I am really nervous after failing the test twice and according to the protocol of my college I can only take the test just one more time and if i fail this last time i forfeit my chance of being a nurse and I have been going to college for 3 years, dreaming that i can be a nurse, but this one section of reading might fail me. So please every one motivate me, i have really lost it.

Well, what score are you getting? And what score do you need to pass?
Also what section do you find the most tricky? Is it the reading passages or the printed communications??
I had the same issue as you but recently retook it and passed the Reading. I figured out what I was doing wrong

When i took the test for the first time I had no idea about the timing and i ran out of time in both reading and math and these are 2 major part i got to do well. My college requires us to score 60% on reading and 50% for math which is considered a pass, my score for reading was 58% on the first test, i read all the passages and every texts and took my time and my second test score on reading was 42% and this time i was focusing on just to answer the question rather then reading the whole texts. I think its the passage comprehension part i find tricky or may be i don't know how to budget my time. For the math section i have no worries.
