Preparing for TEAS TEST

There are a ton of different ways to prepare for the TEAS exam. A lot of it is personal preference. Some students may prefer to learn one way, while others prefer another way. With that being said, some preparation methods are proven to work. We have listed some methods below.

Study Guides

Study guides are a great way to prepare for the ATI TEAS 7 exam. Study guides provide information on topics and subtopics, in one, easy to access place. Study guides will help keep you on track when it comes to studying and make it easy to grasp difficult concepts.

The study guides used in our TEAS prep course cover only the material you will need to know for the exam. We provide study guides for each section of the TEAS exam and organize them by subtopics.

Students can always make their own study guides, but this will take a lot of time and you may miss some important information (or even add extra information you do not need to know).

We did the work for you. Use our TEAS prep course and our study guides to get a top scores on the TEAS exam and save time while studying.

Practice Tests

Practice tests are another proven method when it comes to preparing for the TEAS. Practice tests will help you test your knowledge and see what you know, and what you do not know. Try out a free TEAS practice test above to get started.

Users who take our $49 TEAS prep course will have access to 1,000+ practice questions and 12 full-length practice exams.

The full-length practice exams are timed exams that emulate the actual TEAS exam. The exams are timed and contain the same breakdown of questions as the actual exam. These questions also have answer explanations to help you understand the concepts better.


Time is especially important to consider when preparing for the TEAS test. Students should make sure they give themselves enough prep time before taking the exam. The amount of time will vary for each individual student.

Some students may want to spend a couple of months preparing while other students may only need a couple of weeks.

Think about how much time you want to devote per day or week to studying and decide how much total time you need.
