    What book/study guide would you recommend?
    I heard the ATI study guide was the best but it probably wouldn't hurt to study from a variety.

    You can apply to the CON how ever you want as long as everything is done by the deadline.

    For instance: I could apply now (my transcripts from NCTC aren't ready yet); pay the money; take the TEAS V in January and then send in my transcripts. And change that around however you want. It needs to be done by February 1. Safer to do it sooner.

    Of course if you are NOT a student at TWU yet, you would need to apply to TWU first.
    I'm nervous how that works out, if my transcript hasn't been received but I'm assuming they will verify the grades I've entered manually with the transcripts.

    Do you mean pay the money for the TEAS test?
    No, I did not mean pay money for the TEAS test. You pay that through ATI and schedule the test date through PSI - that has nothing to do with what order you apply for the nursing program.

    I meant pay the $30 application fee to the college of nursing to process your application.

    If you're concerned with how it works, visiting College of Nursing Home - TWU College of Nursing - Texas Woman's University wouldn't hurt. It tells you what to do step by and step and how to do it.

    I think at Houston it is only offered online (2nd degree students) and so you must have permission. Call your adviser and ask.
    Thank you. That makes sense though. I will try to contact them to make sure.

    I would just get the ATI study manual. It worked great for me and had practice tests that were just like the actual TEAS test. You can time yourself and go through each section and score yourself. My results were extremely close to my score on the actual test. I think I did two practice tests at the end and I scored an 88% and a 93%, and i ended up getting a 91% on the real thing.

    I don't think buying multiple study guides is necessarily beneficial. Just save your money and buy the ATI study manual.

    Your welcome! I know I was really stressed about it and I was thankful for any helpful tips I could get. When is everyone taking their TEAS V test?

    I'm not quite sure I understand your question... Once you put in your grades in the appropriate spots on the excel sheet it automatically calculates your grades. Just make sure you put it in the correct spot (if you have taken the course at TWU put it in the correct category) if you haven't taken the course at TWU put it in the correct spot. Then wham, bam, thank you ma'am. It calculates your GPA for you Nice and easy.

    I took the TEAS yesterday, and I was totally not expecting to see a score until Thursday.
    I just got a confirmation via email that my scores have already been sent to TWU.

    ...

    I'm in shock - I got a 94 overall. I used the ATI manual to study and couldn't get over an 88 and never over a 75 on the Science section.

    Hope this means I have a pretty good shot.
