Anatomy & Physiology TEAS Flashcards

The Anatomy and Physiology section is the largest on the TEAS 6.

In fact, the majority of the questions scored questions will be on the human body. You’ll probably see around 35 Anatomy and Physiology questions on the test. You’ll need to be familiar with key terms of body systems—and how those body systems relate to each other.

Proteins are largely digested in the stomach with enzymes.

What's the heel bone's name?


You’ll need to know the major bones of the body.

What bone cell makes new bone?


Osteoblasts build bone.

Where do T-Cells mature?


The T stands for thymus, a gland by the lungs.

Fallopian Tubes

Fallopian Tubes are the site of fertilization.

Which gland regulates the wake/sleep cycle?


The pineal gland is in the brain and releases melatonin.

Which glands make skin oil?


You’ll need to know the 3 major glands of the integumentary system.

Cartilage is strong and protective.

What is the primary tissue of bone?


Bone is a mostly of collagen, along with some minerals.

What is the filtering unit of a kidney?


You’ll need to know the basic anatomy of a nephron.

What causes tuberculosis?


The bacteria infect the lungs.

Biology TEAS Flashcards

Biology questions on the TEAS 6 focus on genetics.

You’ll want to know how DNA, genes, and chromosomes work together. You’ll also need to be familiar with the functions of several important organelles. On the TEAS 6, you’ll see around 5 biology questions.

Which organelle makes proteins?


Memorize this for the TEAS!

Muscle cells have a lot of which organelle?


Muscle cells mean movement, so they need a lot of energy.

What is a collection of cells called?


Cells work together to form tissues.

What makes the mitotic spindle?


Gotta keep those chromosomes in order!

What makes ribosomes?


…Don’t confuse this with the nucleus.

Which organelle contains digestive enzymes?


Lysosomes help clean up cells.

What pairs with adenine in DNA?


Memorize: A pairs with T, and C pairs with G.

What type of bond connects base pairs?


DNA is all about hydrogen bonds.

How many amino acids are there?


Amino acids join and form proteins.

What is a gene variation called?


Alleles tend to be either dominant or recessive.

What is a phenotype?

The expression of a gene

Phenotypes are often the physical characteristics we see.

What is the dihybrid ratio?


Yep, you’ll need to know your Punnett squares on the TEAS!

Chemistry TEAS Flashcards

Chemistry— don’t panic!

You’ll see around 5 (give or take) chemistry questions on the TEAS 6. In order to do well, you’ll need to understand how the periodic table is organized. You’ll also need to understand the basics of chemical bonds. You can do it!
