Is the Mometrix ATI TEAS secrets book enough to study with? I heard many people say they used the book, and some apps, and some additional books, and this and that, it just overwhelmed me. I just have that Mometrix book and one additional math book (I think math will be my weakest subject so thats why) But I just kind of want to focus on those two books and that's it I don't want to be overwhelmed with all types of different additional materials. Do you think these 2 books is enough or should I use all the other things like people say?

First time I took my TEAS I only use the mometrix and I got an 81 which was considered good but it wasn't enough for the program that I wanted. I decided to invest a little more for my second attempt, so I bought the full comprehensive study guide package from ATI itself and scored over 90 which was enough to get me in. In my opinion, it should get you through but if you want to score in the 90's I definitely recommend having additional resources. Don't worry too much about the amount but rather focus on the quality. I found the free apps to be rather useless and found myself just doing them over and over again until I memorized all the answers. So momometrix + the full ATI study guide should do the trick.

Also, studying everything at once can get overwhelming so prioritize on your weaker areas first and go from there. I HIGHLY recommend getting the practice exams from ATI to determine your weak points. Best of luck!

Hey! I took the TEAS last month and scored an 89. I used the Mometrix book as my main resource and studied it cover to cover for about 5 months. I also used the Kaplan guide but only for the practice exams as well as vids on Youtube for more info on certain topics. I’d say get the Kaplan guide for the science section as well as the Mometrix’s guide is helpful but not completely adequate on its own. Let me know if you have any more questions, good luck!

My recommendations:

-Join the Nursehub facebook group. They currently have a study course plus 5 practice tests for $20 using code: Spring2021

-Science: www.sciencewithsusanna.com (print out the drawings, release your inner child, and color along with her...AMAZING how this helps you remember A&P concepts)

-Use A LOT of Youtube! as follows:

-Reading: Carolyn McAllister/Nurse Cheung

-Crash Course, Khan Academy, Amoeba Sisters, Ninja Nerd, Bozeman Science

-For ChemistryL Tyler DeWitt & The Organic Chemistry Tutor

-English: Learning w/ Rebecca, Socratica English Grammar Lessons, Nurse Cheung, & Khan Academy

-Math: Brandon Craft, Jakara Lewis, Radical Math Dude, Organic Chemistry Tutor

You do not need to use ALL of the above resources, but it gives you options if one resource doesn't explain it in a way you understand.

Good luck! ☺️

Thanks for the info ? I already did nearly perfect on the reading and language cuz I already have an english degree, but I haven't taken math in years so even the baby algebra I forgot ? I will look into the math stuff and the facebook group thank you!

Can someone plz give me an example of how detailed questions can be for the A&P section so I know how in depth I should be studying. If taken the HESI which was not very detailed, but not sure how the TEAS compares

Here are some sample practice questions, but I'd recommend joining the Nursehub ATI TEAS facebook group:

H+ + HCO3- <-> H2O + CO2

Based on the equation above occurring in blood, which of the following would result if the reaction is moving in a forward direction?

A. Blood pressure will decrease
B. The blood will become more acidic
C. The blood will become more basic
D. Proton concentration will increase

What happens when a skeletal muscle is in a relaxed state?

A. Ca2+ is released into the cytosol of the muscle cell
B. Myosin forms cross bridges with actin filaments
C. Tropomyosin covers myosin-binding sites
D. ATP binds to myosin heads

I just took the TEAS yesterday and these two questions were on the science portion.  I scored in the 96th percentile overall, 94th in the science section.  I studied with study.com, which was too basic for science, and also watched the A&P crash course videos on Youtube.
