Hi guys,

I just want to know if any of you have taken the TEAS without finishing all of your science prereqs? I was planning on taking the TEAS this upcoming December, however I will have not taken Anatomy or Physiology yet. I have asked my academic counselor about it and she said I should be fine as long as I study the material from the ATI study guide. But I want to hear your opinions on it!

I wouldn't advise it. I took it the first time with only taking AP1, and didn't do as well as I did the second time after taking AP2.

I think you would do much better on the TEAS if you've already taken A&P 1&2, since the TEAS does have quite a bit of A&P on it.
