One of my students in my phlebotomy class told me the wonderful news. She was accepted to the ITT Registered Nursing Program. She has been trying to get into many nursing programs in the greater metro Detroit area without success, due to a two to five year wait list. She had also explained to me that when she first took the TEAS test she scored a 73%. When she came into my school to inquire about the phlebotomy program, she explained that she had already acheived a Bachelor Degree and wanted to find an expedited nursing program. What a surprise. A student had just came in a few hours earlier that day and explained that there was a expedited nursing program offered by ITT that was not even being advertised. Long story short, when my student came in to inquire about the program, she was delighted to hear about the nursing program at ITT, now all she had to do was to pass the TEAS with a higher score. Once again, we all wonder how things work out. She was delighted once more to hear about the book entitled,Pass The NET®, The First Time” , by Nancy L. Kimmel RN PhD. Both she and her friend purchased copies. Well lo and behold, what a wonderful surprise when she came to class and announced that she scored an 84% on the TEAS. She explained that the dean of the nursing program was shocked and surprised that a student was able to score so high on the TEAS. The student stated that the Dean asked her how she was able to increase her score so dramatically. The student replied, “I just studied Dr. Kimmel’s book, entitled, “Pass The NET, ®The First Time,” and showed the book to the Dean. Moral of the story is the the book, entitled, “Pass The NET®, The First Time, is indeed a SECRET WEAPON to Passing The NET, The First Time.

This test measures your ability to understand what you read. You may be asked to:
identify the relationship between sentences
distinguish between the main and secondary ideas
DIRECTIONS: Read the statement or passage and then choose the best answer to the question. Answer the question on the basis of what is stated or implied in the statement or passage.
Myths are stories, the products of fertile imagination, sometimes simple, often containing profound truths. They are not meant to be taken too literally. Details may sometimes appear childish, but most myths express a culture’s most serious beliefs about human beings, eternity, and God.
The main idea of this passage is that myths
(a) are created primarily to entertain young children
(b) are purposely written for the reader
(c) provide the reader with a means of escape from reality
(d) illustrate the values that are considered important to a society
Australia has many strange beasts, one of the oddest of which is the koala. Perfectly adapted to one specific tree, the eucalyptus, this living teddy bear does not need anything else, not even a drink! The moisture in the leaves is just right for the koala, making it the only land animal that doesn’t need water to supplement its food (from That Astounding Creator Nature by Jean George).
The passage indicates that the koala
(a) is a member of the bear family that does not need moisture to live
(b) gets all of its nourishment from the eucalyptus tree
(c) adapts itself to any surroundings
(d) is the only animal that does not need food to live
It is early summer. August’s long-awaited vacation time still seems ages away, but by the same toke, its torpor-producing heat and mildew-generating humidity have not yet arrived. Instead, these cool, end-of-June days practically insist on getting the picnic season under way immediately. But, alas, there is a difficulty: alfresco dining has a bad name among us. Tenth-rate hot dogs, carbonized chicken parts, and beef a-la-charcoal are principally what comes to mind when we hear the words “outdoor food” (from A Spanish Picnic by Robert Capon).
The passage suggests that the author believes that
(a) picnicking in August is long-awaited
(b) August is better than June for a picnic
(c) there are some negative aspects to eating outside
(d) picnicking is better alfresco
In embarking on the fight for independence, America faced formidable obstacles. The Continental Congress did not have the authority to pass binding legislation or to impose taxes. The new nation had no army and no navy, and its population numbered only 2.5 million people, 20 percent of whom were slaves. Britain, by contrast, was a mighty power of 11 million people with the world’s best navy and a well-disciplined army. Fifty thousand troops were in North America in 1778, and Britain hired thirty thousand German soldiers to supplement its forces during the war (from An American History by Rebecca Brooks Gruver).
What is the main point of the passage?
(a) Britain was a great power whose population outnumbered that of America.
(b) America’s military forces were less experienced than Britain’s military.
(c) America’s Continental Congress had limited authority.
(d) As America was about to engage in its struggle for autonomy, it was faced with arduous barriers.
DIRECTIONS: Two underlined sentences are followed by a question or statement about them. Read each pair of sentences and then choose the best answer to the question or the best completion of the statement.
The Midwest is experiencing its worst drought in fifteen years. Corn and soybean prices are expected to be very high this year.

(a) It restates the idea found in the first.
(b) It states a result or effect of the statement in the first sentence.
(c) It gives an example of the statement in the first sentence.
(d) It analyzes the statement made in the first sentence.
The American prison system functions primarily to exact retribution. In Japan, the courts are less concerned with sending people to jail than they are with rehabilitating them.

(b) It analyzes an idea stated in the first sentence.
(c) It states a contrast to the statement in the first sentence.
