Integrate[Sqrt[Tan[x]], {x, 0, 1}]

After some manipulations this integral is:

(2*(Pi + ArcTan[Sqrt[2*Tan[1]]/(1 - Tan[1])])+ 
   Log[(Tan[1] - Sqrt[2*Tan[1]] + 1)/
     (Tan[1] + Sqrt[2*Tan[1]] + 1)])/(2*Sqrt[2]), or

How do I just get the approx. of this, say 5 decimal places?
Mathematica gives an exact answer which is in terms of multiple
fractions, roots, and complex numbers.

According to my TI-85, it is approx. 0.7273
