Nursing is a high-demand, but competitive field. Candidates for nursing school are evaluated on a number of factors, including their performance on the Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS). This standardized admission test assesses a candidate's skills in reading, math, science, and English and language usage.
The TEAS Prep 1 course will prepare you to sit for the Reading and English Language Usage portions of the TEAS exam. This hands-on course includes focused content, videos, discussion questions, flashcards, test prep tips, and practice test questions. You will learn to identify topic sentences, recognize the different forms of an argument, determine the author's purpose, evaluate the point of view of a text, and examine conventions of English spelling and vocabulary. You will also identify your learning style and learn useful test-taking strategies to fully prepare for the exam.
By course completion, you will be ready to conquer the TEAS Reading and English Language Usage section.
