 ATI TEAS Test Prep

Preparing to take the ATI TEAS exam is crucial to help you earn the score you need. We offer the TEAS test prep course in Reading and Grammar as well as in Science and Math to prepare you to take the TEAS exam. The comprehensive exam tests you on four different subject areas, so thorough preparation is crucial. We recommend allowing at least 6 weeks of preparation prior to taking the TEAS. You may take one or both courses depending on your needs. Each prep course is 18 hours and takes six weeks to complete with each session being three hours in duration.

Frequently Asked Questions

The ATI TEAS is a standardized test. Consequently, the sections of the test, types of questions asked, overall format, and timing of the test do not change. By familiarizing oneself with these aspects of the test, learning helpful test taking tips, practicing, and applying these tips to the exam, students find their scores increase.

There is no score guarantee. Students come to the class with a variety of strengths, backgrounds, and levels. Additional practice beyond the class will be needed to get the score one desires. This includes regularly doing one’s homework and participating in class. Sometimes practice is needed beyond the six weeks of the course; however, the course does help to provide input on where students should focus their future studies.

The TEAS Reading and Language Usage course focuses on familiarizing students with the types of questions they will encounter on the TEAS. Key terms, grammar, reading, and test taking tips are spread out by theme through the six week course.

This varies by individual, but one should expect to spend between 3-6 hours a week in addition to the three hour class.

We use the ATI TEAS Secrets Study Guide pubished by Mometrix, as well as various worksheets that directly relate to skills needed for TEAS success. Tuition does not include the book. You will need to purchase the book separately from the college bookstore. It is stronhly recommended you buy the book from the college bokstore to ensure you have the right edition. We will not be responsible if you buy the wrong book for this course.

If you just want to take the TEAS to see where you are, it is strongly suggested you purchase one of ATI’s online practice tests, rather than registering for an official exam at this time, especially if you are not yet ready to actually apply somewhere. The practice test will give you the same score analysis that you get with the real test, and it costs about half as much. You can find them here: You should hold off on registering for the official test until you feel you are ready to get the scores you need. Visit this page to purchase the practice tests: https://www.atitesting.com/teas/practice-assessment.
