I wrote this long review because when I was looking for a book to study with there weren't many detailed reviews or many books to choose from because this version of the test is so new (they started giving it this year in August). I wanted to be helpful for the next person like myself. Hope this helps!
First off, let me say I recommend what the others in the comments say as well. Take one practice test first and see where you stand. Then use the rest of the material to practice what you have missed.
So let me give you all a quick breakdown of the sections in this book.
Reading: the reading portion is very general and is something that I would recommend studying and practicing for using only the practice tests in the back. The reading questions on the TEAS test and in this book are highly similar. Focus on the author's purpose / tone. And always be able to identify the type of writing such as a narrative or expository work.
Math: The questions offered in this book are a little more difficult than the ones offered on the actual TEAS test. I felt that this book highly prepared me for this section [I scored a 100% c:]. A few things I found important to remember are conversion units for metric (the TEAS test offered SOME of the conversions but do not rely on them being there) and the rules for multiplying and dividing fractions. Since statistics is tested, albeit very slightly, I would recommend you study the regression charts and lessons for positive/negative skew.
Science: This is by far the hardest section on the actual test. Students should adequately review their A&P I&II notes along side of this book. The book focuses highly on anatomy and biological process, as well as very basic chemistry. Some topics I would recommend for students to reassess are: the components and anatomy of eukaryotes / prokaryotes, ionic and covalent bonds, the products of both mitosis and meiosis, and DNA replication.
English: the English section is not as difficult as the other sections, but when you are being graded out of 24 questions, it is imperative that you do well and score as many points possible. Test yourself with flash cards the most commonly misspelled words, prefixes and suffixes. Know how to find the implicit definition of a word using context as well. The book really helped me the most when it came to subject-verb agreements and pronoun-antecedents.
In conclusion, this is a wonderful guide that will wrack and plumb your brain for all of the information you should have learned up to this point. It is very short and 'to-the-point' in comparison to the other study guides available. Certainly consider picking up the official test guide from ATI, especially if you're still finishing up your pre-requisite courses. But if you're normally an adept student with your pre-requisites finished who wants a very straight-forward review, I highly recommend this guide over the rest.
