Urgent question!-Science section for the TEAS

  1. 0
    I haven't touched Biology/Anat+Phys, Physics, or Earth Science since high school.
    I'm not worried about the bit on Biology/Anat+Phys because I'm taking Anatomy and Physiology next semester and I'm not worried about Chemistry because I've already taken it.
    However, I'm extremely worried about Physics and Earth Science because I have't touched Physics since 2011 and Earth Science since 2008. I'm thinking about taking Physics at a local community college but should I'm not sure if I should do the same for Earth science.

    My question here is that should I bother taking any courses at a local CC or should I just focus on the TEAS study guide?

    I would just focus on the TEAS V study guide. Research anything you don't understand. The science section is broad but the questions aren't all that deep

    I decided to take a Biology. I think it will help me with the TEAS science section, but since I'm taking Anatomy and Physiology in the fall, Biology can help me as a base for the 2 courses. The course is only a month long and then I still have time to study for the Exam in that time. After that, I have the next two months in the summer and then I take the test in January.

    You can't wait and take the TEAS until after you take A&P? I'm deep in TEAS studying now and from the study guides/practice exams I don't know how much help a general bio class will be, but it seems heavy in Chem.

    Click on my name and look at the first thread I posted. I have a detailed account of the science section.

    While I had taken a few bios before the TEAS I found their study guide very helpful also, and it gives you a good idea of what to expect on the test.

    There is maybe two chemistry questions in the whole test. You will need to know DNA, mitosis and meiosis. Know the stages of them. Know about potential and kinetic energy. Know about condensation, evaporation and vaporization. The different stages, water, gas, liquid. Know how many layers of skin there are. These are all on the test.

    just wondering, because when i took chemistry, our teacher gave us an equations chart so we didn't have to learn those. should i learn them or does the tea come with an equations chart as well?

    you get nothing for the teas, just a pencil and paper

    rainbowvahmet - your post was incredibly helpful for me. I used your advice along with the ATI manual to study. I thanked you in the comments of the post, but thank you again!
