TEAS English & Reading Resources

The Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) is an admissions exam for Nursing programs, including the one here at Brazosport College. The Brazosport College Writing Center offers support for the TEAS during our regularly scheduled hours: MTWR 8am-8pm and F 8am-12pm. 

We know your time is valuable, so we offer you the option to book a face-to-face appointment. The BC WC allows for walk-ins, but scheduling is the best way to ensure you have a session on the time and day that works best for you. Simply visit Writing Center - Schedule an Appointment at least 24 hours before you'd like to visit, and follow the directions to schedule an appointment. Call 979.230.3460 for more information.

What to bring to your appointment?

  • TEAS V Study Manual (available in BC Bookstore)
The TEAS V Study Manual offers sample tests and questions that will be invaluable to your preparation for the TEAS. While the BC WC has a copy that you can use in the Writing Center, the exercises in the TEAS V Study Manual will be essential to your studying. This book is published by Assessment Technologies Institute (ATI), the company who writes the TEAS, so it's the best resource you can purchase to help you prepare for this examination.
  • Your Score Report

  • If you have taken the TEAS: bring your official score report.
  • If you have NOT taken the TEAS: take a practice test before your appointment, and bring your SCORE REPORT.
The practice test allows you and the tutor to tailor a learning plan to meet your needs. There is a LOT of material in the TEAS V Study Manual, available in the BC Bookstore, and it would take over a dozen sessions to cover it all. The score report you receive will show you which sections of the TEAS V Study Manual you need to study. Without the score report, we are sharp shooting with a shot gun. With the score report, we have a sniper rifle.

The Brazosport College Writing Center has put together a TEAS Introduction Powerpoint.pptxTEAS Introduction Powerpoint.pptx that will help introduce you to the TEAS, BC's requirements for admission, score reports, and how the BC WC can help you succeed.

TEAS Practice Tests

The TEAS is a computer-based test; it's a test you take on a computer. Therefore, good studying includes taking practice tests on the computer. Since you will be testing on a computer, you should move through some practice on a computer. These practice tests will provide you with detailed score reports that you can print and use to focus your studying and Writing Center visits.

ATI Practice Tests

ATI offers a 150 question practice test covering all four areas of TEAS, Reading, English, Math, and Science. ATI's test follows the same format as the TEAS, so you will be able to practice the test in the same digital environment in which you actually test. The ATI practice test costs $46 USD and is available on their website.

TEASPracticeTest.com

TEASPracticeTest.com is a website that provides free practice tests in Reading, English, Math, and Science. Although it's not in the exact format as the ATI TEAS Practice and TEAS exam, TEASPracticeTest.com offers self-scoring questions that offer you immediate feedback as you practice.
