TEAS Prep Guide

Resources for the TEAS at MJC and beyond.

Take a Practice Test

What about taking a practice test right off the bat, to assess your strengths and areas you'll need to focus on to pass the TEAS? The following resource gives you a practice test along with the answers so you can tell right off the bat what you'll need to study.

Making a Study Plan

How Much Time?

Give yourself at minimum of one week for each of the four test sections. ATI recommends beginning to study at least 6 weeks prior to your test date.

Study Plan

It's a good idea to spend some time understanding the test structure as well as time reviewing the kind of Reading, Math, Science, and English questions that you will see. 

We then recommend you make a personalized study plan to organize the study time you have available. Think about how much time you will commit to studying before exam day and what resources you can access. Map out your plan by week or write down what you plan to do each day, then stick to it!
