Reading Section: 53 questions/64 minutes

The Reading section of the ATI TEAS (TEAS 6) test comprises about 31% of the entire test. The test has 53 questions that you have to complete in 64 minutes. To do well, you need to be able to read for comprehension of key ideas, as well as details. The test also has questions regarding the author’s purpose, style, and point of view. Finally, you will be asked to take the knowledge you gain from reading and extend it through strategies such as prediction and analysis


This section covers key ideas and details in reading passages, the craft and structure or sentences, and the integration of knowledge and ideas.

If the question doesn’t reference something in one of the answers, that answer is probably incorrect. Check to see what is/isn’t referenced and choose the best answer from there.

Do not assume facts about questions. Often, if information is not provided in the question, it will not be relevant. Stick to the facts that are provided.

Some questions will focus on your ability to determine the difference between opinion and fact. Practice recognizing the difference between fact (the grass is green) and opinion (the grass smells nice).

Read carefully and slowly. Questions may be confusing if you read too quickly.

If you think that 2 answers could be correct, ask yourself, “What is it REALLY asking”.

Study and know different types of writing styles. You may be asked to identify. i.e. narrative, expository, entertaining, analytical, persuasive, etc.

Know how to identify first person (I), second person (You), third person (Narration).

Use only the information you are given, if it is not stated in the text then don’t assume it to be relevant.

Use Process of elimination. Eliminate answers you know are wrong and work your way to one, final answer.

Know how to use an index, dictionary, almanac, encyclopedia, and glossary.

Try to improve your reading speed and comprehension in advance. You want to ensure that you can finish the section before the time is up.

Pay attention to the wording in questions. The wording in the question itself will usually provide helpful hints that can lead you toward the correct answer.
