# Taking TEAS V 7/26- METRIC Conversions

Published

Just wondering if I need to memorize:

1. English to Metric Conversions or do they give them to you? (i.e.: convert meters to feet, oz to grams, etc)

2. How about knowing how to find: area, perimeter, area of triangle, radius and diameter?

Thanks so much! I really appreciate all the input and any other nuances I may need to know for the test.

No worries. Got an 87.3 which is 97th percentile nation wide...wooo hooo!

Woohoo! Congrats! I'm studying for the TEAS V now and was wondering the same thing. I know the basic conversions from milli to kilo but after reading my chemistry for dummies book I'm starting to get a little nervous about that! Anyways congrats again!

No need to worry, all conversion problems i had (about 2) gave u the conversions you needed. Example: convert feet to miles, they gave you how many feet were in a mile, you just had to do the math. Good luck!

^^^^^^for chemistry I've only hear about balancing equations and the basic bonds, atomic number, mass etc.

Thank you so much! That takes a huge amount of weight off my shoulders!

The test may cover some very basic organic chem (being able to recognize alkanes, alkenes, alkynes). Look at the ATI study guide for what they want you to know.

Know diff between ionic, covalent, hydrogen bonds. only had 1 to balance, it was easy. Make a list of each element, next column write.down how many are on reactant side, next column how many on product side. Start with 1st element & see how it changes the others in reactant, & product, til u balance it out. Know where metals, nonmetals, metaloids, alkine, halogen, etc. are.

You'll do fine. Good luck!
