teas study guides question

Students TEAS



so i have to take the teas exam in june, and im wondering

1. how much chem and physics is actually on the teas?

(i have a bio degree and a strong dislike for those two subjects, i have taken chem I& II and orgo I&II and physics I&II, and passed and hated it, and its been at least 3 years since i went near those two subjects at all)


on the ATI website, they have a study manual and an online test package for 2 tests for about 100 dollars.

2. will i be able to get by on the study manual (like 50 dollars?) on its own + online free tests

or should i buy the whole package for 100 dollars?

thanks! and any tips would be GREATLY appreciated!

I took mines this past friday. I had no physics questions and maybe a few chem. Questions. Most of mines were on biology. Scientists questions. Cells. And anatomy. Also some questions on mines were in the study guide. Practice questions.

Sorry. Meant to say scientific*

I took my TEAS last Monday. Sitting here looking at the study manual, ATI states that Earth/Physical Science has 14 scored questions, 9.3% of test items. I didn't remember having any physics questions, but it killed me on chemistry. Acids/bases, chemical bonds, and balancing reactions. :[

I bought the whole study package way back when they had a special price. It-- along with youtube-- was my only study guide. The book covered the test questions verbatim, and the book's 2 included tests also drilled me with the same specific subjects. Personally, I found the online tests completely worth it. They were set up exactly as the actual test and gave rationales for correct/incorrect options after each problem. By the time I sat down to do the real thing, I felt well versed in my time management, the feel of the test, and even saw questions that were eerily similar to the practice ones. That said, $100 is a lot. Yet, I also don't know of any free online TEAS practice tests.

I also forgot, if you wanted the online tests but are worried about price, perhaps you could look up a used copy of the book to free up some money for the online tests?

Get the study guide it really helps! I didn't bother with the practice tests though. My school hasTEAS prep books in the library too.
