I took the TEAS randomly today and did good! I scored a 74. The school that I want to attend only requires a composite of 66% and a science score of 60.

My background: I never completed high school and went on to get my G.E.D. I have yet to take any prerequisites for any of the subjects that was on the test. I took this test just to see what it would be like and to challenge myself.

I purchased ATI book, practice test and Mcgraw-hills Nurse Entrance Exam(these books were ok). I would suggest 5 TEAS Practice Tests by Mcgraw Hill. This book has the same exact layout and form of the actual test! The science is on point in this book. The practice questions in the book are very similar to the TEAS, even the science portion. I have very little (and I do mean very little) science background. I brushed up using self teaching guides from Amazon. If you are bad at math just grab any GED book and study basic arithmetic and algebra 1. To study for the English portion I used Susan Thurman's book-The Only Grammar Book You'll Ever Need. Its a very concise book and straight to the point. I am not great with grammar or punctuation but this book helped me enough to pass. The reading was a bit challenging. I am an avid reader and its my favorite subject. The questions aren't tricky but the passages can be dense. I found myself losing focus and interest. there were several times when i had to go back to the passage for better comprehension and clarity. If you can comprehend what you read and know the different types of writings(narrative, descriptive,expository,persuasive,etc.) the questions will be pretty simple. All in all, this test was basic. In my opinion, the science was the most challenging and it was the lowest score that I received. When taking this test you have to keep time and pace yourself. You should warm up by doing a few practice questions before the test but not too many. When you take the test you are going to be thinking-"awww man, this is what I was stressing over" lol...good luck!

GET THE 5 TEAS BOOK FOR PRACTICE!! YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT
