Question Regarding TEAS Study Time

  1. Hi Everyone!

    I know the TEAS subject has been brought up many times on this board. I am new here and was just curious with one question. I am scheduled to take the TEAS at the end of April. I just received my study manual. I am not strong in either Math or Science. So, I was just wondering if anyone felt that I would have enough time between now and test time to study for the test? I will be able to study everyday for at least two hours because thankfully right now, I am not working and dont' have any children... yet :spin:

    Well, I appreciate anyone's input because I don't want to bust my butt studying just to find out that one month's study will not do the trick.

    Thank you all,

    Yes, a month should be fine, because it is for the most part basic math. The study guide is a good tool and see if you can try to answer a few questions every day. In the actual test be cognizant of time. Back solve if you can and don't spend more than a couple of minutes per question. If you find yourself working through a problem skip it and come back to it. If you don't have time at least guess. There are some conversions, some ratios, a lot of multiplication and addition. Some problems it is faster to just logically arrive at the answer based on your choices.
    The science part is similar to the manual.

    I have to take the test by March 31 for the progam I applied to. I just took the NET for another nursing school. Is it similar? The time limits on the NET were ridiculous, I felt. Is the TEAS the same way? I am going to buy a study guide. Thanks!

    I have not taken the NET but some fellow students that have taken both tests have said the NET is easier.
    Timewise I would bet it is the same. I remember being really crunched for time in Math. Not so much for the other parts.
