TEAS V 2012
0I am taking the TEAS again one week after my first attempt. Does anyone know if you get the same test or a totally different set of questions?
0Jan 12, '12 by babs218I took the TEAS V twice, five days apart. The second time the questions were totally different than the first. However, I noticed that the second test had many of the same reading questions as the online practice tests.
The second time around the math section was much harder, or so I thought. All of my scores substantially improved the second time around, though. Good luck!
0Jan 12, '12 by babs218Quote from KaltenriederYes and no. I think the first test was more of a 'get the feeling for the format' experience. While the practice exams are supposed to accomplish that, there's no good substitute for taking the real test.I am taking the TEAS again one week after my first attempt. Does anyone know if you get the same test or a totally different set of questions?
After taking the exam the first time I realized that:
1) I was in no danger of running out of time so chill out a little
2) my weak areas are still my weak areas, study those harder for the 2nd try
3) it wasn't as bad as I thought, I was much calmer the 2nd try
All of my scores improved by at least 10 or more points the 2nd try. I even scored 100% on the Math and Grammar sections (shocker). I think it was because I wasn't so stressed out, not because I studied what was on that 2nd page.
0Feb 1, '12 by dccubanoI took the TEAS twice and scored and 84% overall both times. Here is my breakdown:
English 70% (yikes)
I thought the exam was harder the second time. I believe science section is just luck o f the draw. The topics I had the first time around I was more familiar with. There were some questions on hormones and osmosis/filtration that confused me during the 2nd attempt. It is frustrating especially after hearing how everybody does better the second time around. I submitted my second scores, I think they were better balanced. I was hoping to score closer to 90%. I know an 84% is not bad but most of us on this board are overachievers.
0Feb 2, '12 by Vincent12I improved quite a bit the second go around. All 80s. Reading was almost a 90 which kills me because I could have used an extra point.Not sure where you all are applying but I am applying at Weatherford ADN which is a point system. 70-79=1, 80-89=2, 90-99=3. I was happy to go from 4 points to 8 points even though I only had an 82.7% over all this last attempt. Thank you for sharing you experiences and giving me some pointers.
0May 16, '12 by ArrowRN, BSN, RNafter wondering if i should spend $88 on the ati study guide and practice, today i jus said to heck with it and walked into the college and took the teas v without studing. i did purchase mcgraw hill 5 teas tests online digital download 2 days ago and its pretty much the same format but i did not complete any of the practice tests.
well i got an 84% total adjusted score is that good? my first choice is to get into university of central florida, for my aa my cumulative gpa is 3.57, which i think is pretty low but not too bad for a family guy with a full time job. colleges here only allows retakes after 30 days, so i cant go back 5 days later like some people do.
my break down was
the english section was not hard, jus tricky things like grammer punctuation, use of commas, semi colons etc and fluency questions, use of possessives like its or it's...days or day's and some spelling questions.
my advice is as soon as you finish the science prerequesites, just go take the test, everything will be fresh. the math was not hard its just a lot of long division, multiplication additions of improper fractions and basic algebra and no calculator allowed . the science had a lot of basic chemistry blance equations, electrons, valance shells and genetics, study of cells, atp mitochondria and cell structure and the human body, just stuff we took from biology classes. reading was like high school ged stuff nothing hard, just the usual trick questions to try to confuse you. the reading and math questions took me full time allotted and science i finish with 25minutes to spare and the english was 34questions in 34minutes so that was more a time test than anything else. you can go back to check your work and make changes only if you have not proceeding to another section of the test, once u move on you can't switch between sections if u got spare time.
if you dont have the money for ati books and just want an idea of what the test is like just get the digital download of the mcgraw-hills 5 teas practice tests (ebook) books a million website has it for only $8.85 to download which open with adobe digital reader, amazon had a kindle version for $9.00
