I recommend buying the teas secrets and the ati book. you should study for at least a month and in every subject watch videos and practice. for example for the math, break down all the topics and practice them. Watch videos on the things you do not understand. I spent the most time on science and math, I read both books and highlighted the key info. I would then go on youtube and search for a lecture by mandy parker. Her lectures are the exact slides my professor would use and she breaks down the info very well. Do not go too in detail to the point you get lost. When I studied for the teas I bought a notebook also and wrote notes, writing it helped me to memorize things. If your problem is that you get too nervous on the day of testing just make sure you relax. I also downloaded the ati teas pocket prep and would do those on my free time throughout the day. I only studied for 3 weeks with these techniques and passed with an 80.7 on my first try. Not a perfect score but it is passing for the university I got accepted in. What score do you have to get? depending on how high of a score you need will determine the amount of time you need to study. I also recommend this website they have a free study guide, I used the science section and read all of it.https://www.registerednursing.org/teas/.

Thank you so much ! I have the ATI Secret prep book but I kind of didn't find that helpful because I got too overwhelmed with how much information there was. But I found an even better book which is called Cracking The Nurse Entrance Exam. This book is similar to the ATI but tells you tips and tricks on how to remember certain information and also gives you mini practice questions. As far as what score I have to get, I'm not really sure because my community college has a ranking system. I believe it is the 60's but I got a 53. Math and Science is what I had trouble in the most also. But this time I scored a 65 in the Math and low in the Science. I always usually study a month or two in advance before taking the exam so I really don't have a problem with. Mandy Parker I've heard is good so I will give it a try! Thank you again for your tips.

OP- have you taken your science prerequisites yet? Perhaps the problem is you are studying for TEAS without having the level of understanding you need from having taken and passed the actual courses?
