Looking for a TEAS practice test to help you get ready to take the exam? The good news is that I’ve been helping students prep for the TEAS since 2015 (is it healthy to spend that much time thinking about the TEAS?!), and I LOVE it when my students get fantastic TEAS scores and get into nursing school!
One of the best ways to prepare for the exam is to do TEAS practice questions to test your knowledge and get to know what’s on the ATI TEAS exam in 2021. Below, you’ll find TEAS exam practice tests for each section (plus recommendations for resources).
You’ll also learn how to make the most out of your TEAS practice questions so that you can study smarter to score higher.
The TEAS can seem scary, but practice tests are a great way to make a plan to pass the TEAS test!

What is on the ATI TEAS?
Before you take a free ATI TEAS practice test, it’s important to get to know the TEAS test so you can get the most benefit from test practice questions. The ATI TEAS consists of 4 sections: Reading, Math, Science, and English.
Every TEAS exam has 170 questions, but only 150 are scored. You will not know which 20 questions are not scored. Each section of the TEAS has a different amount of unscored questions.
TEAS Reading Practice Test
TEAS Reading is the first section, and it’s the longest:
- 47 scored questions + 6 unscored questions = 53 total questions
- 64 total minutes
- About 1 minute and 12 seconds per question
One of the best ways to prepare is to do TEAS reading test practice questions on long passages, finding the main idea, and different source types.
TEAS Math Practice Test
TEAS Math is the second section:
- 32 scored questions + 4 unscored questions = 36 total questions
- 54 total minutes
- About 1 minute and 30 seconds per question
TEAS math practice tests should focus on word problems, ratios, and working with percentages and decimals.
TEAS Science Practice Test
TEAS Science is another long section:
- 47 scored questions + 6 unscored questions = 53 total questions
- About 1 minute per question
When it comes to your TEAS test review, you’ll need to do lots of memorization for this section. Be sure to focus on TEAS science test practice questions on anatomy and physiology, chemistry, biology, and the scientific method.
TEAS English Practice Test
TEAS English is the shortest and fastest section:
- 24 scored questions + 4 unscored questions = 28 questions
- 28 total minutes
- 1 minute per question
When taking TEAS English practice tests, be sure to learn the quiz yourself on types of sentences (simple, compound, complex, and compound-complex) and pronoun-antecedent agreement. It’s also great to review medical terminology.

How to Practice for the TEAS Test
How do you make the most of your TEAS test practice assessment? Great question! Here are some tips I advise all my students that use my ATI teas online practice assessments:
- 🔎 Use your first practice test to help you identify where to review first
- ✍️ After you take a practice test, write down 3 areas for each section where you can focus next. Start breaking the big ol’ test into manageable bites.
- 📓 For most of your studying, use TEAS exam study questions for each section. It’s great to do sets of TEAS exam study questions that only focus on one or two areas of the exam. This helps you check your understanding on important concepts for each section.
- ⏰ After you’ve taken a few TEAS section practice tests and spent time learning and reviewing, take another full practice test.
- 💡Between practice test sessions, learn and focus on specific sections of the exam.
ATI online practice assessments are great to help you mentally prepare for switching from topic-to-topic and for building your endurance for a several hour exam.
One of the best ways to boost your score, however, is to quiz yourself with about 10 TEAS exam study questions at a time. This strategy lets you focus on learning and recall, and it’s a great way to prep using TEAS test practice online assessments.
Test Day: How to Take the ATI TEAS Exam
Before you take the TEAS, you will need to register for an exam date. You can do this either through a school’s testing center, ATI, or a testing center. When you register, it’s a great idea to ask questions about the testing conditions of your testing center. This can help you prepare because you can practice taking the exam in similar conditions.
Here are tips for if you are taking the ATI TEAS exam remotely:
- If you need exam accommodations, it’s best to request them at least 30 days in advance.
- Ask your testing center ahead of time about your break. If you are taking the TEAS remotely, you will likely push a button when you’d like to take your break, but policies vary by testing center.
- During the math section, you will be able to use a calculator that’s built-in to the exam. You can’t bring your own calculator.
- Ask your testing center about how much scrap paper you will get ahead of time. Some testing centers only allow you to use one piece of paper.
- Do actual TEAS test practice test questions in the same spot of your house. This will help train your mind to focus, but it will also help your roommates know that you are focused there. It will also help you identify any Internet problems ahead of time.
- Free up space on your device for the remote proctoring system to work.
One of the best ways to prep is to take an ATI TEAS practice exam under real testing conditions. Here are some tips:
- Take the practice exam in the same area where you will take the actual exam.
- Use only one piece of scrap paper (or as many pieces as your testing center allows).
- When you take your practice exam, only use your computer’s calculator.
- You are also allowed to have one break during the exam. Typically, this is after the math section. When you take your practice exam, try to only allow yourself one 10-minute break.
Of course, it’s best to go into the test confident and prepared. Read more about how to pass the TEAS.
