And what did you think? I took it last week and feel like I was prepared for the Math and Reading portions by using the study guide but I really struggled with the Science portion. For me it was a lot of Chemistry and it's been a... Read More

    The teas v study guide from ati is almost exactly like the teas . If you study the guide you will do great! Every topic is covered in the guide. I bought the study guide but foolishly didn't use it and scored a 73 overall my first try. I scored in the high 80s and low 90s on everything except science, which I scored a 54. I had only half a semester in A&P I though. I am going to take it again next week.

    Emmy P have you looked at the science section and compared it to the test. I am reading mixed results. ATI said to me we write the test and the book and they are both the same. Can you shed some light specifically on the science section. I will be taking my exam next week to start in July. Thank you for your feedback and best of luck on your exam also.

    In my experience yes! Each topic that is in the science section was on my test. Obvisously it is not the exact same questions. Same topics, different question! I would make sure you know all 11 organ systems! Each exam has one system highlighted with questions. Also I had a lot of questions on the parts of a cell and their jobs. Know how to balance chemistry equations. You dont need to memorize the periodic table like some people have said. They provide one for you. Do know what the numbers mean in an elements box in the table. Know the different types of chemical bonds ( covalent, ionic etc.) the science section is what gets everybody I think. I'm sure you will do great! Take your time! And if you don't know just guess! Best to luck to you! Let us know how it goes!

    I just took the TEAS last week. I also thought the science section was the most difficult. The study guide was not that helpful for that section, IMO. I mean yes, there is a very quick review of each organ system, but not in NEARLY enough detail. For example, I got a question about the function of ear wax!!! That one was not so hard to figure out, but it is an example of the level of detail on some of the questions. It is interesting, reading through this thread, I could tell that I had many of the same questions that other people had back in January. I wonder how many versions of the test there are.

    I will be taking the test next week. Looking through this site at Candice83 list of study hints does this seem pretty accurate. Which test did you take there are two forms an A and B. Who on this site seems to have been the most accurate to help me in my studies.

    I am taking teas 5 tomorrow June 22, 2011. I have been studying the manual and taking the practice tests in the manual (have not bought the online tests). I am very nervous, as I have been out of school for 20+ years. From what I have been reading on this site, the science section sounds difficult. Any last minute advice from someone who has taken teas 5 recently would be greatly appreciated!! (Is it more or less one organ system with detailed questions?)

    I truly hope you passed with the score that you needed. I am taking the test Monday and have been out of school over 20 yrs and very nervous. Please share your experience I could use the insight. If you don't want to talk on hear you can email me mstrain123@yahoo.com I would really like to talk to someone who has been through the exam experience.

    Hey guys I'm taking the TEAS V tomorrow and I've been studying 3-4 times a week for a month using the ATI study guide only.

    I really could use some last minute advice...

    Dear mstrain and keepmovinglpn,

    I took the teas 5 today, 6/22/11, and scored a 84.7 which placed me in the 96th percentile (as per test summary). I was happy to have scored that well! I have only been using the ati teas 5 manual to study for the past month. Honestly, the math and english are pretty easy and stick to the manual. The reading was somewhat difficult - long passages, answer choices where at least 2 of the answers could have been correct. The reading was definately tricky. However, the worst was the science. The science included many questions that were not in the manual. I guessed at at least 15-20 questions. There were several chemistry (including mole questions), questions about vitamins, potential energy, and so many others that I can't remember. My mind was a blur when I walked out of there. I almost ran out of time on the reading. I had the most time left remaining on the english and the science (probably on the science due to guessing at so many)! I really don't think that you can study for the science. The questions are so random, it is either you know it or you don't. I hope this helps and good luck to both of you!

    Hi,

    What school are you applying to? Do you take the TEAS only once for all schools?

    That is a very good score unless you just came out of high school and with chemistry. I have had no chemistry...moles oh boy. One girl at my school said she had a lot of chemistry the other girl said very little. Do you know if you took the A or B exam.
