What prerequisites should be completed before taking the test? Any other advice on what to study? Book recs?

I'm not sure you need to take pre reqs before. If you need to take them for a program, OK. But I wouldn't hold off taking the test until you finish a specific class if that's what you mean. In a perfect world, you'd remember everything you learned in middle and highschool. Although the TEAS is hard, it's really just basic concepts. I wouldn't overwhelm myself studying advanced biology and chemistry books or complicated math.
The ATI book is really useful. I think sitting down for a month or so and going over everything is your best bet. If that comes before you take pre reqs, I think you'll still be fine.
