TEAS exam

Erica87 Erica87 (New) New

I just took the TEAS exam today at CSN. It was fairly easy. The most difficult subject was science. It wasn't really the science reasoning but it was the random questions about Geology. There were only about 3 A & P questions on there and maybe 3 chemistry. There is a new book that ATI put out so hopefully it is more geared to what is on the exam than just a bunch of general problems that help you in no way what so ever.

Overall I got an 85% which is fine by me. Of course I would have wanted the A but I'll stick with the high B. Did anyone else take the exam? How did you guys do?

Looks like I'll be having to take this TEAS for entrance into a bridge transition nursing program. So erica87 may I ask you how many questions do you think it was total for the exam, the usual how many were mulltiple choice, time allowed for the test and the dreaded (for me as this is my absolute points destroyer) how much math did you have and any other subjects I haven't heard mentioned. I know it sounds like I'm asking a lot here, but just an overview of that test so I have some idea. Thanks for your reply.

Kudos to you for getting an 85!! I took the TEAS 3.0 back in 07 and got an 86. I had to retake it (version 4.0) this year to enter an LPN-RN bridge program because my score was 3 years old (and for that reason unacceptable) and scored a 74.1 (needed a 75 to pass). I was ****** to say the least! Ive been practicing as a nurse for 3 years and was deemed unworthy of the bridge program because I couldnt name fault lines in tectonic plates beneath the oceans surface?????? The test I took was heavy on physical science. I may have had 2 A&P questions. Im studying to retake later this month. Good luck to anyone that must endure this torture!

Just make sure to study the book and you'll do fine!

Oh Thank you. Sorry I'm new to this didn't know there was one

I disagree that reading was the easiest part. I absolutely hate tests where there is a more "correct" answer. I guess I like more cut and dry facts than interpretation. To each his own, and good luck getting into your program :D

I got a 94, but I think they have recently changed to a different version of the TEAS, I took the test in Fall 2009.

Then you must have really hated the NCLEX! :p

Or should I say you will, if you haven't taken it yet :/

The TEAS is not a fun test. The Math and English is not the problem its the science. Who cares about geology or earth science when you are trying to get into the nursing program? I did manage to exceed all the required percentages and my overall score was 86, but man I am glad i wont have to take that again. I took the NET test a few years ago, and it was way better IMO. The science on the NET was way more in line with the A&P stuff we had been studying.

This is not my affair, but I would like to suggest that if you absolutely hate tests where there is a "more" correct answer [emphasis changed], you may be ill-prepared for life.

Life is FULL of "more" correct answers!--and a whole lot worse than such simple things as that.

But, perhaps you will come to see this, and adapt.
