    Yeah I got to keep at it! I have that book and I studied for it last time but I think I just get nervous before the test and I changed alot of my answers. They always say go with the first one you choose. I always overthink things. And first attempt bumps meaning retaken classes? Only chemistry and I believe a history class.
    The first attempt bumps are extra "points" they look at when evaluating your application. They look at 4 classes, giving you and opportunity to have 4 extra points. Those classes are A&P I, A&P II, Micro, and Stat. If you made an A in any of those the first time you took them, you get an extra point. I made B's on A&P I and II, but A's in Micro and Stat so I will get 2 out of the 4 possible points.

    Hope that helps clarify it a bit for you.

    Yeah I knew that they looked at those four, but I had no idea they give extra points. That's pretty cool. When is everyone taking the TEAS?

    Good luck to you! I am using the TEAS study manual from the ATI website. It seems pretty good! Try looking for it on half.com

    @ Nela87

    If you don't mind me asking what do you think is the reason for you not getting accepted. My friend had almost the same stats as you a GPA of 3.7 and a 74 on the TEAS and she got accepted this past Fall. I mean do they tell you as to why you didn't get accepted or do you have an idea?

    Well I thought it was my TEAS score that's what heather the advisor advised me on fixing. But I also retook a class now to get a higher GPA. And did your friend apply to the Dallas or Houston one? Because the Dallas one is far more competitive since it has a lot more applicants. You have to remember, each semester more and more students apply. Also, no they don't tell you why you didn't get it. They do give you a few pointers though if you email them to ask.

    I see she applied to the Denton campus back in Fall 2012 and am guessing there's a lot of factors that come into play. Good luck with everything

    Denton doesn't have a nursing program, it's only Dallas.

    I don't think August is too late. It only takes a couple of days for TWU to get the score, so you should be fine. My advisor told me that as long as we took it a week before the Sep. 1 deadline, we'd be fine!
    Also, the ATI TEAS-V manual seems to be working just fine as a study guide for me, and I believe everyone else is using it as well. You can buy it on the ATI website or on Amazon!
