It explains the topics in detail.
This section on the TEAS is 55 questions long, the longest on the test, and the questions are sometimes not clear.

I highly recommend this book for anyone that is getting ready to take the nursing exam.

***3 star-rating refers to suitability of this book for the TEAS examination only. Otherwise, the quality of this book is quite adequate.

It seems that there is no one book that sufficiently prepares you for this test. This was one of three manuals I used for the TEAS exam and probably the one I liked the most. I found it less detailed than the Kaplan's book-GOOD THING!. I'd especially recommend it over the Kaplan if you are short on time. It is well-written, easy, and fits the TEAS better. However, it only prepared me sufficiently for the Math and English sections. Sadly, about 60% of its Science section I found useless for this test (applies to all books I'VE tried). And the most upsetting, about 6 topics necessary to pass the exam were missing in all books. You can't screw up more than 5 questions out of 40 per section. Someone told me that you could find the geography questions on various nursing blogs. I could not, but it's worth trying.

TEAS consists of English, Reading, Math and Science and is not hard. You'll be given enough time-I was able to bank at least 5 minutes per section, even though I was not rushing. If you were a decent student in high school and have a good recollection of it, you will probably do fine.

The biggest problem for me was not knowing exactly what to expect.

Math section is heavy on all sorts of conversions such as: decimals to fractions and to percentages, Fahrenheit to Celsius, KGs to LBs and so on. Review graphs/charts and their purpose-when would you use bar graph or line graphs. Be able to solve equations such as "x-3=10".

I just received my grade from the TEAS which I took over the weekend. A 91, and I am ecstatic! Mainly because I will not be taking that test again! This review is not going to be so much about the books as it is going to be about the TEAS test, since that is what everyone wants to know anyway. I AM GOING TO LEAVE THE SAME REVIEW FOR BOTH THE MCGRAW-HILL AND KAPLAN BOOKS THAT I PURCHASED AT THE SAME TIME, SO THIS REVIEW WILL BE COVERING BOTH BOOKS IN CASE YOU ARE DEBATING ON WHICH ONE TO PURCHASE. IT IS ALSO VERY IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER THERE ARE SEVERAL VARIATIONS OF THE TEAS, SO ANY BROAD, GENERALIZED, EXAMPLE I GIVE IS SPECIFIC TO MY TEST ONLY AND MAY VARY WHEN YOU TAKE YOUR TEST. So if you just want to know if this book was good or not, skip to the final paragraph. Otherwise read on as I will be covering both book's weak and strong points with a little personal commentary about the test thrown in to the mix!

The pros and cons are very similar for both books. They gave WAY too much detail on certain subjects (for example, I re-familiarized myself with all the hormones from the endocrine system for this test only to find they were not even mentioned in the science section of the TEAS at all...), and very little to no information on others (geology was not covered in either book, but for some odd reason there were more questions on the TEAS concerning geology than human anatomy - look online for help with the specific geology questions on the TEAS). Both books cover all four sections of the TEAS extremely thoroughly, but in my amateur option, one should not buy these books with the opinion that they are all you need to pass this test. You need to have taken college algebra, general chemistry, and finished your English sequences to do well on this test.

This is the only study guide I used to study for the TEAS exam. There are 4 testing sections on the TEAS: Reading, Math, Science, and English. There are 2 practice tests for each and chapters on all the basic concepts. What I did was take one practice test from each section to see where my problem areas are, and then I studied the chapters. Then, I took the second set of practice tests from each section to see how much I improved. It worked great. I got a 90% on the official TEAS test.

I just took the TEAS exam today and i got an overall 90% passing rate. I only studied for five days, mainly looking at Kaplan and McGraw Study Guide.
4 Portions

READING: paragraph comprehension, passage comprehension, inferences and conclusion; very very easy; there is NO long passages at all... it is no more than couple of sentences each... so I was misinformed by the study guide thinking it was going to be long ass passages. A LOT OF TIME.

MATH: whole numbers, fractions and decimals, percentages, ratio and proportion, metric conversions, algebraic application, data interpretation, means, modes, I did not use the study guide, I just took the practice test,which is a good reflection of the test. Kaplan's practice test was a bit too wordy and harder. None of the questions were that long. You do not have a lot of time so you have to go, go,go...

SCIENCE: scientific reasoning, general, life, chemical, physical, human body... GRRR BOTH KAPLAN AND MCGRAW DID NOT COVER THE RIGHT INFO ON CERTAIN SUBJECTS
-one of my questions were on plate tectonics (WTF? why do we have to know that nursing?)
-one about earth and its orbitals
-1 question about plants
-very few questions on human body 2 or 3
-chemistry- kno ionic, covalent, they give u a periodic table so just know nonmetal with metal for ionic and nonmetal with metal; good insulators

ENGLISH: punctuation, grammar, sentence structure, contextual words, spelling... no real hard vocabulary; everything is pretty easy here also and PLENTY of time... I had more than 30 minutes left

SO basically I only use both Kaplan and McGraw just to do the practice tests. For the science portion though, I did read the entire study guide. You have to look around online for more science information about geology, etc. There is none in the study guide.
