    Hey, You're right. Teas is really about the basic knowledge you learned from high school and first 2 years of college. You really have to review and go back to basic . If you purchase the reviewer they recommend from ati plus the practice exam- I think you will be fine. Why don't you study the reviewer Teas V manual- the reading, grammar and math. Do a lot of practice exam especially for math- you want to be fast- learn some tricks that will lead you to the answer right away. The math part is basic math but the critical part is the TIME. Reading part- the teas v manual will really help you big time- but you have to practice doing the test and time yourself. Science- my advice is read the teas v manual BUT since science part is toooo broad - you need other sources. YouTube - khan academy is great help for me . Reviewer for anatomy and physiology- but just follow whatever the teas v manual covers. For example- the reviewer covers about mitosis and meiosis but it's not compete. So after reading the teas v manual - go read more details about it from other book or if your a visual learner- YouTube helps you understand. Punnet square- know it by heart coz they will ask different style of questions. Scientific method- if you understand the steps - that's good- but try to apply it to the real world- coz they are going to give some scenario. This was my weakness but I figure out anyway. Try to understand - interphase - by heart!!!!! The functions of the cells, organelles, and all the systems in the body. For the science part- what I did- after I read the teas manual-look at the table of contents for science and use it AGAIN as a guide for you but this time- it's either you use YouTube or another book. This one really helped me a lot!!! My score went up from 77 to 89 for science. Reading and math- teas v Manual is pretty good. Grammar- I think teas v manul is good but for me I have to rent some books at the library. For the grammar part- my big advice is know the rules for punctuations and know what is adjective, adverb , nown, pronown- I tell you- it may sound very easy at first but I swear , their very good on tricking the test takers. However- if you MEMORIZE the rules for grammars - just follow whatever the reviewer covers - this will really help you. Lastly, practice practice practice- no matter what- practice and time yourself - this will really help your brain prepare. No matter how good you are- if you don't practice - it wil pull down your grade. When I first took the exam- I did not practice at all because for me- I really don't need to practice - but I was totally wrong!!!pleade don't repeat this mistake. So go ahead and start studying:) you can do it. Never give up!!! Goodluck to you. If you have questions - don't hesitate to ask me:)

    Strategies that help me: Reading- use your pen and paper to list down information and when comparing - this part is very helpful for the informational sources- last part of exam. Math- when you do computation- don't be careless. Not too fast but not too slow I guess- be aware of the time always!!!!! Science- the more you know- better chances you'll pass. So read on mitosis- meiosis- how many cells they produce . Also know the interphase very well. Practice the punnet square make sure mo matter what question they ask-you understand it. Chemical balance- this one you need to know how to balance the numbers. Scientific method- known it by heart. Their not going to ask you the steps- but in general their going to give you a scenario- so you should choose the best answer based on the scientific method. Everything actually is in the reviewer:) FOr science- if you have difficulty- use the elimination strategy!! Cross out all answer that doesn't make sense and always always choose the BEST answer:) Grammar- know the rules of all punctuations and parts if speech. Also do lots of practice exam - this will improve your brain in looking for the best answer!!! practice practice practice:) is the secret in passing teas!!!:)

    passing the teas

    Hey, i want to help you. Which one is the most difficult for you? The reading part- all I can say is that you really have to practice like doing lots of practice exam - and time yourself. Also for the reading- make sure you know the difference between informative and persuasive - it's all in the reviewer. Actually for the reading part- the TEAS V Manual is very helpful. Also on the reading exam- the informational sources- that's the last part of the exam- that one really needs practice because it's more on getting the information quicky - like read the questions first then go back to the diagram or picture. If you practice a lot- this part will improve your grade. For the passages - I guess you have to really know the meaning of - logical conclusion , theme, topic, main idea etc.. If you truly understand their meaning- then you also practice and time yourself - you will get a decent score for the reading. Math- the teas v is pretty good reviewer coz it covers 90% of the topic. It would be helpful too if you use some algebra book just to practice the word problem to improve your speed. I guess for the math and reading - time is very crucial here- that's why doing more of practice exam will improve your speed. Science- I guess this one is basically everything you learned in biology. Just follow the guideline in the reviewer and if their is something you don't understand - google or YouTube it- it helps;) I did good in science because it's my favorite subject. Grammar- know the rules!!!in using aposthrope , comma all the punctuations- coz their going to trick you in the exam but if you know the rules- it helps a lot. Try to memoriZe the rules- know all the pronouns , subject , adverb, adjectives coz there going to ask that one for sure. For the context clue- if they ask you the meaning of a word- try to figure out the meaning based on the sentence- this is a very common mistake :) if you took it twice- I guess you know how to study - just practice more and you'll get the score you want. By the way- tell me which one really pulls your grade down? We're you ok with time when you took the exam? Did the questions repeat? Anyway hope you'll do better. But all I can say- don't give up- just keep on moving forward:) you'll get there!!!!
