TEAS VI Math Test Prep Course


On the Math portion of the TEAS exam, you will encounter 36 multiple-choice questions. You will have 54 minutes to complete the Math section, which works out to about 90 seconds per question. This means you must be able to comprehend what the question is asking, set up the proper way to solve the problem and arrive at the correct response all in under two minutes. Remember, you are only permitted a four-function calculator for this exam portion, so proper test preparation is key!

On the exam, content is divided into two sections: Measurement and Data, and Number and Algebra. Of these two areas, the bulk of questions will come from the Number and Algebra content area. 

Tips for success:

Before you look at the response options provided, you should always work out the math problem yourself and come up with your own answer. If your answer matches one of the answer choices, you are in good shape. However, if time allows, you should always double-check your work. The TEAS loves to throw in tricky answer choices to stump you.

It is important to remember the Math section of the TEAS is multiple-choice, meaning if you can eliminate even one wrong answer, your chances of answering the question correctly greatly increase. Therefore, if you are stumped on a question you should always seek to cross out incorrect answers.

What is considered a passing score?

Each nursing school individually decides what score constitutes a “pass”. However, most programs want to see scores at least in the 60% - 70% range. Having a score in a higher range increases your chances of acceptance at the school of your choice!
