Here at Adkins Academy, we are committed to assisting students in understanding the reading material we teach them thoroughly. If you are looking to study for the TEAS exam, contact our team today! We are excited to help you with any TEAS exam prep that you need. 


The TEAS Reading portion will allow the student to demonstrate their reading, vocabulary, and reading comprehension skills. Living up to the name of the Test of Essential Academic Skills, this portion of the exam will challenge the test taker to read and retain key ideas and details about a given text. The student has several passages to read and goes through a series of comprehension questions. The TEAS Reading test will allow the test taker to demonstrate their understanding of craft and structure and how to recognize and comprehend the integration of knowledge and ideas in a given text. Even if you think you understand the material and do not need to study, the chances are that you do. 


This is because reading and understanding complex written material will be essential for your nursing program's success and nursing career. Thus, it is crucial that you truly understand the proper reading and comprehension techniques needed to pass this section. As a nurse, you will be reading complex language in textbooks, patient charts, internal communication, and more. You will need to quickly identify the author's purpose and interpret its meaning along with any valuable data or details.  


The Reading portion of the TEAS Exam accounts for roughly 31% of the test's questions. It is essential that you feel comfortable with:

  • Key Ideas and Details 

  • Craft and Structure

  • Integration of Knowledge and Ideas 


Suppose you are not, no worries! Here at Adkins Academy, we are committed to ensuring that all potential nursing students fully understand the TEAS exam concepts. 


Our TEAS Test Prep Course


Our TEAS Test prep course at The Adkins Academy is here to help you ace the TEAS Reading section. We put understanding above memorization, which is why we carefully create and curate our practice questions. These thoroughly designed and curated practice questions help you build a sense of critical concepts on the test. The high yield and challenging set of problems our instructors help you through for the TEAS reading portion are available to provoke thought and reinforce the material you are learning. These questions are written and vetted by our highly trained staff of standardized exam experts. They exist to test your knowledge of the subject matter and transform the way you think about these questions. 


The TEAS Reading portion will include questions that are purposely misleading to measure a student's test-taking skills. The Adkins Academy TEAS Test Prep Course will prepare students for this by having problems that are often more challenging than those you will encounter on the exam to reinforce the virtual classroom material. 


Prepare for the TEAS Reading Exam in our Virtual Classroom


So, how exactly does this work? Our live TEAS Test Prep course will take place in the Adkins Academy Virtual Classroom. Here, you will be able to go over the material and these questions in detail with a professional instructor in real-time. Your professor will help you develop strategies for approaching difficult questions on the TEAS Reading Exam. Most crucial of all, however, is that these courses are not prerecorded! Instead, they are in real-time, allowing you to review and ask questions with a live instructor among other classmates. This allows you the unique privilege of collaborative space in the comfort of your own home or anywhere with a stable internet connection! Having a small group atmosphere will enable you to ask and answer questions, see your instructor and their whiteboard, and listen to their instruction and class dialogue, all in real-time as you prepare for the Reading portion of your TEAS exam.


To supplement your studies, you will also have a subscription to the Adkins Academy question bank, granting you access to various questions written or vetted by Dr. Adkins himself. These questions will be much like the questions you will be working with during our TEAS Test Prep course. Our test bank has thousands of review questions, and we encourage you to work on them as often as you can to prepare for your TEAS Reading Exam. 


A competitive TEAS score is essential when applying to nursing schools. Rather than just memorizing the material, The Adkins Academy Test Prep course aims to bring you from "I don't know" to "I understand" when dealing with complex questions on the Reading portion of the exam. Get started working with our professional team of instructors and Dr. Adkins himself and guarantee yourself a higher score on the Reading section of your TEAS exam. 


If You Don't Pass The First Attempt


Here at Adkins Academy, we understand the stress that many students feel when taking an important test like the TEAS. Sometimes, even the most well-prepared students can find themselves failing due to their nerves getting the better of them. That is why we offer a free retake of our TEAS preparation course to those who want to take it a second time. We genuinely believe that all students have the potential to succeed.


We recommend looking back at your study guide and textbooks to reinforce areas you missed while reading the exam information carefully to understand the retake policy. Ensure you remediate all test areas, not just the ones where you didn't make the required score.


The Second Attempt


The entrance exams are not punitive or to screen out applicants. The purpose is to ensure that students are ready for success. The expectation is that if you are struggling to meet minimum competencies, then it is an indication to invest the time in taking classes that will help bridge those gaps in knowledge.


Live Test Preparation


If you require help in your studies, consider taking the Adkins Academy Live TEAS Test Prep course to improve your overall understanding of the information.
