Preparing for TEAS

Posted

Hi all. I am trying to prepare to take the TEAS, and was hoping for some advice from those who have taken the exam. I haven't been in school in over 10 years, so I feel like I need a big refresher in the science area. I feel comfortable with the reading, english, and math.

I'm currently taking an online Human Biology college course, and was wondering if there are any other courses that you would suggest I take to help prepare me for the science portion. I am currently enrolled in Principles of Biology next semester, but if it wouldn't really be very beneficial, I will probably drop it.

Thanks in advance!!!

No, I have not. Should I take that next?

A&P (I and II) are a huge part of the TEAS 6 science section. If you are not familiar with organ systems, the organs and how each of them function and relate to each other, that probably be priority.

I can't imagine taking the TEAS without taking A&P. Maybe if you have a very heavy bio background and have worked with patients in some form, but I had not. Many will say A&P is "high school" science on these boards, but when you are 5+ years out of college with a finance degree (like I am!) you might struggle a bit more with sciences.

I would highly advise waiting to take the TEAS until after you have taken A&P. I never quite understood why students did this. I see it happening on here quite frequently. Is there weird deadlines where some programs let you apply without having completed all your pre-reqs, thus the rush to take the TEAS before these classes are complete?

Looks like I will be taking A&P next! I graduated high school in 2004, so I definitely need these classes to have a shot at passing lol. Luckily I have a year or so to prepare, so I'm not rushing it.

Thanks for your replies :)

We need to at least be enrolled in ap1 when we apply into the program, but it doesnt have ro be compelted. . Ap2 can be done in your first semester of the nursing program. They do reccomend having both completed prior to beginning the program, but it's not required.
