In the process of preparing for TEAS test, any suggestions?

Posted

I'll be taking the TEAS V test in late August. I started studying for the TEAS since June ish, is that enough time to prepare for and do well on the test? For those of you who have taken the TEAS: did you think the ATI study manual prepared you well for the actual test in terms of content, did taking the online practice test help in regards of material compared to the actual test, and what other books did you all use when studying for the TEAS?

I have the ATI book and the McGraw Hill 5 pratice test for studying. Did anyone find the McGrawHill book helpful for the real test in terms of content?

What did you guys do the day before the test and during the hours before the actual test?

Do you have any suggestions and tips on how to do well on the test?

Thanks all!

I studied for 4 weeks a week per subject I used the ati study guide and the McGraw hill 5 practice test those worked well for me. if I didn't understand something in math then I just used youtube. most people say don't do anything the day before but that just didn't feel right to me so I brushed up on mainly math making sure I knew the formulas and stuff like that. get a good night sleep. the following morning I prayed and gave it to god because at that point I had done all I could do. I had a cup of coffee to so i'd stay alert during the test. the only tip I have is relax and breath try to take bathroom breaks in between sections if the instructor allows it. this gives you time to regroup and switch gears. good luck let me know how it goes!!!

Hi there,

I just took the exam this morning and did well. I only studied for 2 weeks because of a ton of personal things I had going in in my life. I found the ATI manual and practice tests very helpful along with YouTube (a lot of YouTube). There is quite a bit of logic on the exam as well as converting fractions into decimals.

Make sure you pay extra attention to graphs, charts, and anatomy of cells.

What do you recommend to pass the language and reading comprehension section?

I watched esl videos on YouTube.. It really helped me with subject verb agreements and things like past participles and things I have not seen since the 3rd grade lol

I used the ATI book and studied for about 2-3 weeks and found that for me the ATI study guide was adequate. One major thing to focus on is timing. When I was doing the practice tests, I would finish anywhere from 8-20 minutes early in each section, BUT when it came to the actual test I found myself using the whole allocated time. If you having trouble with the reading section, then I would suggest practicing a few MCAT strategies and verbal practice sections. They tend to be much harder and will make the TEAS reading section a "walking in the park."

Thank you! What was your score?if you don't mind me asking!

I really got my butt kicked in the English section. Also to be more thorough, I'm not suggesting you study for only 2-3 weeks, I was just stating my experience. I come from a strong science background, so I didn't have to put much effort into studying the science section, which saved me a ton of study time. I'm hoping this was helpful. Good luck!
