TEAS vs PAX-RN

Hello everybody! 

My name is Tifany and I'm in the process of applying to nursing programs to start in the Fall 2020. I'm currently studying for my nursing entrance exams, for the programs that I'm applying to mostly need TEAS and like two of them need the PAX-RN. I honestly do not know if I should do practice questions for both test separately. I'm just doing practice questions for the TEAS and not for the PAX-RN. Will that still help me do well in the PAX-RN or I should do practice questions from each test separately?

Also, I see that for both test we are tested on Chemistry, Physics and Biology (general). I honestly think is unfair for us (students going for their ADN first) to be tested on these topics since it wasn't required for our degree's pre-requisites. I would like know your opinion and your thoughts about this.

Hope to hear from you guys soon, thank you! Stay safe. 🙂

I only studied for the TEAS test even though I knew I was taking the PAX test a week before my TEAS and I still did really good on my PAX! The information is very similar, so I feel like practicing separately wouldn't be too important. I would say that both my PAX and TEAS had no physics on them and very little Chemistry, but there were a lot of physiology questions and general biology/scientific process questions. I took both of these tests before taking A&P2 or micro and I still got "expert" in the science portion, so it is not as bad as it seems.
