Science on TEAS test

Posted

Hi All, I've read so many posts that stated the science portion of the TEAS test comes out of nowhere (rock formation, etc). I'm wondering if I should get a geology study guide? Anyone have any useful input, suggestions? Everyone says the study guides don't cover what is on the science portion. Thanks

The science on the test did seem to sort of come out of nowhere, but I wouldn't go buy a geology study guide. I remember my questions on geology being extremely simple, and there were only 2 of them. There were a couple of physics questions that caught me off guard, if you've taken any physics I would recommend going back and looking at the formulas. For the most part, though, I really didn't think it was that hard. The toughest part for me was the math, but just because I am so used to using a calculator for everything, and doing longhand frustrates me. I would definitely spend the most time going back and studying the math.

I went to the Unofficial Online Course for the TEAS Exam Review (google it), worked through every single problem, and passed first try with an 88.

Don't stress too much about it, good luck!

The only thing you need it the TEAS study guide!! Except I think the science part is really lame and it did not even help me that much not to mention the science questions in the study guide are much more difficult then are on the test. Don't bother practicing the science questions waste of time. I would not stress over the science, the math is what I would concentrate on. You have to move very fast to even get them all finished. I probably had to guess on about 6.

Know the difference between atomic number, atomic mass, protons, neutrons, electrons.

Know how to use that codon chart from Microbiology to decode the amino acids only 1 question.

Be able to read a thermometer.

Know what independent and dependent variables in experiment mean, know what control group means.

There are a few physics type questions that I just made a guess. I never took physics.

For the math concentrate on ratios, proportions, and the know the metric system. There was probably only 2 algeba questions. Most is just adding and subtraction

There is only one geometric figure probelm. Just know C2=A2 +B2

Know the D=R (T) and I= R (P)

I took it twice, so if you do the questions are exactly the same just in a different order.

Hope this helps and Good luck!!!

Thanks so much both of u, and Steph what a memory!

I remember a few more science questions:

First know the what a covalent bond and a ionic bond are.

1. Which one is a ionic bond ****.

2. There is also one that asks about which one is a covalent bond, but I could not figure out what the right answer was. IF you know the different parts of a periodic table I think this helps .

And the about the metric system know 1 kilogram = 2 LBS and know the conversions for milligrams.

I know there is a question that that asks how 500 milligrams in 1 kilogram. Something like that I can't quite remember. ALSO make sure you know that body temperature is 98.7 F close or 37 degrees C. There is some problem that asks what 95.5F to Celisus is something weird like that.

The TEAS is the same test for everyone with the questions just in a different order. Hopefully my good memory will help me through nursing school!!

Thanks for the compliment :coollook:

i had all those questions for the science portion on the teas! wow - you have good memory... i can barely remember one or two questions.. the rest were all a blur :/....

Hi! I took the TEAS just last week. The science section has questions that are super random. I purchased the ATI review guide for the TEAS myself, and found their Science unit to be of no help. Amazingly, there were only 2 A&P questions on the entire exam. I expected there to be more considering this IS a nursing school entrance exam. My strategy was to do well on the Language and Math sections -- and it worked! I got an 87% & had only studied for 2 weeks. So, (if you want to take my advice) just buy the ATI study guide and focus more on the Math and Language sections (which were covered pretty well in the guide) because a bulk of the exam questions are taken from these areas. Best wishes! :wink2:

thanks everyone :D

Hello Stephgriffin6,

This is very helpful,thanks a lot. I think i had same test. Do you remember some physics questions? Could you write a pm for me. I don't remember any physics questions. Thanks

I don't really remember any of the physics questions. I never took physics so I just guessed on those questions.

Thank you very much for so quick respond

wow..super good memory..!! :)

thanks everyone :D

Did you take the test yet?

I don't really remember any of the physics questions. I never took physics so I just guessed on those questions.

Arrgghh, I need help with my reading and English portions, I am not sure what happened with my score there. I mean I converse well and all that, but apparently, that is not good enough. Do u remember some of the questions?

Thanks
