I’m not going to go into the strategies of how to study effectively for any particular subject, as that would be far too much of a bore, but I will tell you about the resources that can help you prepare better for your examinations. If you really want to excel at any nursing job, you’ll need to do your homework to find out exactly how others who have already gone through the process are doing. In this article I’ll tell you how to prepare for the Teas Examination.
Do your Homework You can do your homework quickly and easily online, and probably sooner than you think. You can find lots of useful resources on the internet dedicated to preparing for the Teas Examination. The Queen’s Nursing School website has plenty of information on word problems. There are interactive books, flash cards, mini tests and plenty of practice questions. All of these resources are easy to use and provide a great deal of help with your word problem preparation.
Get organized Get set and ready to go! When I was preparing for my word skills test, I was actually very disorganized. I was running around looking for data and information that I had probably forgotten about and hadn’t put together in a while. But after a few hours of searching, I found what I needed and realized I was really prepared. It didn’t take long to figure out what I needed to study and what resources I needed to use.
Practice makes perfect – this is an old adage that you should remember when preparing for any exam or test. I also learned this while preparing for my Teas Exam. I would often study for hours at a time but never get as much done as I could if I could just take a short break and try to focus on another task for a little bit. It definitely made a big difference in my performance on the day.
Learn from Past Mistakes One of the things that can really hold people back when they’re preparing for something is their past failures. You should obviously learn from them, but don’t let them stop you. You should always look back and see what you were doing that might have cost you the entire exam. Use the past mistakes to learn from and improve your strategies moving forward.
Be relentless in your efforts to study. Make sure you dedicate time to every aspect of your preparation. The first couple days are most important and you should spend a lot of time just focusing on these days. Stay focused on your goal and push yourself forward. There’s always more time later. It’s just a good idea to not get discouraged if you’re not seeing great progress straight away.
Focus On Your Flaws Instead of worrying about the words, focus on your flaws. For instance, maybe you’re terrible at reading English. That’s OK. You can still do well on the test by highlighting your biggest weaknesses. Then, after you’ve read the 100 most common words, you’ll be able to spot the ones you’re not good at and study those words.
