I took the TEAS test and passed today. I thought it was kinda hard. I bought and studied cover to cover the TEAS V study manual. It was very helpful for everything except for the science portion (which is the only reason why i bought it...lol). I found there to be quite a few geology and earth science questions on my exam. Why I would need to know that to be a nurse, i'm not sure. I did find out that there is something like 5 versions of the test though so maybe I just took the geology one....lol. Other than that, spending $40 on the book and driving an hour and a half to get the only copy available was totally worth it.

Hello Heather0719, and CONGRATULATIONS on the TEAS V test!

I'm curious as to what type of geology and Earth science questions were asked? Can you give an example question from each category? Science, Chemistry, Geology, etc.. How hard was the math portion? I'm pretty good in every subject EXCEPT MATH lol. UGH! I can't STAND math lol. I have the old 3.4 TEAS study guide, the purple one, and the TEAS V -I haven't looked through them just yet, but I heard the TEAS V is more difficult. It's frustrating when I call colleges to inquire which TEAS version they're administering, and they don't even know. Are you from IL.? If so, which campus did you test from?

hi misstonitone,

 

i hate math too! :lol2:i don't expect to do that well in it, but i'm going to study my butt off if i can. which version of the teas did you take? there are 2 versions so far, 3.4 (i believe) and the newest is the teas v (5). what type of math questions do you remember from the exam? were they the same type in the study guide? were you able to skip the problem and come back to it later?

I took the TEAS exam last month and passed. I was stressed out like usual (I don't do well on exams). I purchased the Kaplan review book, studied the day before, pulled an all nighter (which one should NEVER do before an exam!) to study as much as I could. But the exam is based on what you have learned, "basic" like most have mentioned here. Just try your best, and read the question as is, and try the eliminating method. Good luck!

its not that bad. i thought it was some what of a review of the things you should know. A little above basic. I didn't study at all and got an 87%. Its do-able... (and i suck at math!)

Please email me freetobeme82@yahoo. I went and in my personal opinion.. wasted $44.00 on the ATI Teas Book on the web site. It was horrible .. in my opinion. It did not teach you well.. at all how to do the problem solving or how they came to the conclusion. All the answers in the back were not all that accessible. I was highly... disappointed. I was wondering .. I seen on here that some people simply went to the library for the GED book. I am going up the street today for the library. My test is the 16th. I am freaking out.. and ill prepared as of now. I don't know if there are problem solving books step by step that actually teach.. then throw questions and answers at you without the foundation first and steps involved. I also read on here.. that the teas was much much easier then the ATI test book. I took the Compass and it was a breeze.. I did not even study. The nursing school I plan to get into says you only need an over all score of 58% to pass. I would think... if you do exceptionally well in the reading and English with not many in the math and science you can still get a 58 or above easily. Please email me and we can discuss this further.. Thanks Leah

Please email me the link where to get the Kaplan book. freetobeme82@yahoo.com. I didn't want to waste more money.. I purchased the ATI test book and it was horrible in my opinion. Not an easy study at all! I spent $44.00 on the web site. Now.. its either GED study guide at the library or Kaplan review book. Unless ebay has it cheaper. Thanks Leah

Hi! I took the Reading and Math portion of the TEAS exam yesterday, I didn't study at all.....which I could've done better probably considering I haven't been in any type of math class in 12 years. The reading portion is pretty easy I scored a 92.5%, it pretty much just consists of reading a statement, the best advice I can give on the reading is to, read it more than once look at the answers and read it again, biggest mistakes occur when people don't read each part thoroughly. Now on the math I didn't do so well, however they told me I scored very high and that i was in the competitive level, so I'm assuming thats a good thing.

Now on to the math part. Learn fractions!!!! You have to be able to solve for x. So learn your fractions and how to solve equations, the biggest thing I had the hardest time with was converting F to Celcius, so learn how to convert that will be on there, also learn how to convert kg to pounds. There are quite a few conversions. I wish I had studied a little more.

I take my science and english on tuesday and I am SUPER nervous, I never excelled in science and so I don't know how that's going to turn out.

Also my advisor told me that studying the GED study guide was closer to what you will be tested on.

So GOOD LUCK to you all!!!!!

Hello rruren0817,

How was the science and English portion of the exam? Is the ATI book and their online practice enough to do the exam for science? How did you score?

Hi ihkg74,

The science and english, were the one's I had the most trouble out of. I scored low on the science, seeing as it had been 12 years since I had been in school. I've heard the ATI book was good for studying. I used the GED guide to study with, because my advisor told me that other students had told her that it was closer. The only thing I can tell you is to do a refresher on all kinds of science, because it is HARD. I'm not gonna lie, I probably guessed on most of it. I scored a 60, which is what you need to pass it. The English, the biggest thing that I did horrible on was comma placement, so make sure you study that really well. The science is really hard to study because the questions are pulled from all sciences so its really hard to pinpoint one area. Allow yourself a week or so to study because I only had a weekend and to me that wasn't enough time. But good luck!!!!
