who's taken the teas v???  page 17
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... Read More

Oct 19, '11I am taking the TEAS V on Monday, October 24th. I only need to score a 60% or better on the Math portion, if I don't, I can take the Math portion one time a week [have to pay the full amount of the test only to retest in Math] up until I believe December. I do have to take the other 3 sections, but the scores don't matter as I am already accepted into the RN program at my school. So therefore, I am studying my buns off for the Math!
Just wondering, if the Math on the test is similar to that in the ATI prep book? I sure hope so! 
Oct 29, '11Quote from JenniferaschMy experience was that the math was exactly the same, they'd just changed the numbers. I got 100% on the math and I owe it entirely to the ATI study guide.I am taking the TEAS V on Monday, October 24th.

Oct 31, '11Where can I buy the ATI study guide? And what is the name of the study guide? There are a lot of different ones out there. Thanks. Good luck to everyone!!

Oct 31, '11Hello, I took the TEASV in Aug 2011.
I did very well (top 1%) and this was due to studying for about 2 months, and taking the example tests offered online at ATI.
This kind of test is knowledge based, not only in what you have learned in HS and Uni but also in preparing yourself for the test.
The ATI manual is not enough to prepare you to make a 90 or above. You will have to do some other studying as well.
I downloaded a couple of HESI exams using amazon kindle, I searched for several types of questions (esp Math and grammar) online and the best resource out there is this:
MyLearningExpress.com /Learning Express Library.
http://www.learnatest.com/LEL/index.cfm/help
Learning Express is a free resource set up via your local or Uni library. It has several types of tests online > Nursing Exams, AP BIO, CLEP, SAT, ACT, GRE, GMAT.
I used several of these tests to practice from aside from the ones provided by ATI. Thus, on the day I took it I knew what kind of questions could be asked. 
Nov 1, '11texas girl..im taking my test in 3 weeks..im worried about chemistry and earth science...help!!!

Nov 1, '11Can anyone pls help me out who has taken the teas v lately? i test this saturday and am far behind, was wondering if u could tell me anything u remember from the test pls? kevano51@yahoo.com thanks!

Nov 2, '11Thank god I am not the only one contemplating whether I should retake the TEAS V. I took the test yestersday and just got an 81% overall score. The score meets the schools minimum required score, but I am wondering whether I am better off retaking it and hopefully scoring in the 90%. I would love to get anyones opinion...:spin:

Nov 2, '11Michelle1985...do you mind sharing your experience with the science section..that's what I'm worried about

The science portion was a lot of chemistry, know how to balance an equation, know what the mass#, atomic # etc of an element is. Be familiar with basic anatomy and physiology. Def know what a cell is compose of and the fxns of organelles. If you have recently taken you nursing prereq classes and did relatively well, you will be fine with the science portion. The only thing I felt was a bit unfair was that the test included physical science and physics which are not nursing prereq so I never took them :/. Good luck. Hope I helped 
Nov 2, '11Michelle1985 thank you that really helps.. I've heard so many different things about the science portion and it scares me. :/.... Was everything else pretty easy? The math?

The math I loved! I only got 1 wrong. Know your order of operations (PEMDAS), mixed #'s, know how to multiply and divide fractions. The ATI Study Manual is on point with what you need to know for the math section. The reason my score was lower than I hoped for was because of the English, grammar, sentence structure stuff. I have not taken a basic english class in over 5 years so I forgot all the rules. Definitely know noun, pronoun, adj, verb etc. 
Nov 3, '11Michelle1985your so awesome thank you.one last question on the teas guide it says that there is extra ungraded questions on the test..is that like an extra credit opportunity? Do you know anything about that?

Feb 20, '12Just took the Teas V today at Lafayette Ivy Tech. I scored an 86%. I was shocked that I did so well... during the whole test I was thinking that I was bombing the test!!
The study guide helps with Reading/English/Math... Science is nuts. MOST of the science questions I answered by process of elimination and a good ole' fashioned guess. I managed to score higher on science than English, I think this is due to the fact that after 3 hours my brain was fried!!
I used every second of the allotted time allowed for each section. I was planning on going back and checking all of my answers, but I ran out of time to do that. I did finish every question, just didn't have time to check every question.
I studied for about a month. I used the Teas V study manual and Chemistry for Dummies and Biology for Dummies.
Good luck to everyone!! Honestly, I thought the test was BRUTAL... put in the study time and do your best... That's all you can do.
