Just took the TEAS-V last Friday. Some of the questions were perfectly ridiculous in the reading section. I just made my best guess.
Lots of Chemistry and A&P. My chemistry portion did not involve a periodic table: they didn't give me one and I didn't need it. Math is remedial with many basic algebra questions. Unless you are super-human speed wise with the pencil, you will need every minute to do the figuring. There is no way to study for the English,Reading and Grammar
portion. You either know it or you don't.
I had many resource materials for studying but it turns out the best that prepared me was the "pay $37 for the sample tests on ATI". I paid for both versions and am glad I did! There was actually one question on the sample that was on my math portion. I liked the samples because they gave a detailed report about where I was weak. I learned from the samples that if I took my time and thought through each question, I did better.
I felt very prepared for the test. I don't know how to compare it to the previous TEAS but it would be difficult if I had not studied - especially for the Chem and A&P. The best study source for the Chem was actually Chem for Dummies. The ATI prep book for sale on the website was excellent for Math brush-up and A&P. The chem was weak in this book. There is also a specific TEAS-V preparation book available on Amazon
. (black and yellow) The academic information was useless but the test taking hints and directions were very helpful. It showed how to do a good Hail Mary guess if need be and explained the intent of the test and the context in which it was written. It's a good book for those (like me!!) who choke on tests.
Get good rest and take your time or you will go blind from the computer screen. One more thing...they only give you one piece of scrap paper at a time so when you run out, you have to sign out another during the test which eats up your minutes. Be sure to write small or figure in 2-3 extra minutes for scrap paper exchange.
Hope this helps,
