ATI RN Comprehensive Predictor - page 3

Does anyone know how accurate these predictions are? Supposedly, if you get over a 70% on this test, you have a 99% chance of passing the NCLEX-RN. Any opinions on this?... Read More

    Update on me: I took ATI in late March got 80% with 98% expected chance of passing. I took NCLEX April 3rd it cut off at 75 questions I found out that I passed the next day. YAY! SO I guess it was a pretty good predictor. I studied from the Saunders 4th edition review book and took a 3 day NCLEX review offered by a teacher at my school. I studied for about one week (about 3 hours per day). Did about 1500 questions give or take a few hundred. I also did the Kaplan questions in the skinny purple review book.

    I took the ATI for the NCLEX PN and RN. For the PN I had a 99% chance of passing and I did pass on my first attempt and for the RN I had a 98% chance of passing and did pass on my first attempt. So for me they were right on the money. I did not study before I took either ATI and when I took them I tried to be as laid back as possible with my answer to see where my real level of knowledge is at. I did study for both NCLEX PN and RN on the areas I scored the lowest on the ATI which I think helped but just remember what isnt on the ATI and study those things as well.

    My school is so pro-ATI that they are considering making passing the ATI part of the requirements for graduation.
    So is mine, it better be worth it after all the $$$$$$$ ATI stole from my bank account.

    we had to take the predictor also, i dont know if the contract with ATI has anything to do with the fact that my dean has her name and a quote in it...does your school??

    i didnt study for this test, i really wanted to see where i am. we took ours last week or so, you guys know how remembering a day is, and i got a 76.5 = 98% chance of passing boards on "first attempt", that sounds just bad doesnt it?

    so we will see. i am doing tons of questions, many sources and also the Kaplan Review.

    we will see, i just sure wish i could take boards now and not wait! dang-it!

    I took it yesterday and got an 85, 99% probability of passing NCLEX. Let's hope! Good luck to everyone who hasn't done it yet. It was a long 3 hours!

    I just took my ATI predictor yesterday & it predicted my NCLEX pass rate at 99%. Here are some tips to help prepare for the predictor:

    1. Read as much of the RN comprehensive book as possible (I just read it like a novel several days before hand to refresh my memory).

    2. Take the non-proctored exams available in all content areas (Maternal, Peds, Pharm, Med-Surg, and Psych) and study the material suggested.

    3. Brush up on basic lab norms, ABG's, fluids, and electrolytes.

    **The test is based on all content areas, but is mainly med-surg material (right out of the RN Comprehensive book!)

    I hope this helps!!

    I have that book already. Great!
    Only problem is I have trouble maintaining my focus when reading it since it is more of a cliffnotes style of book. I'll give it try though!

    My school already makes passing the ATI-predictor worth 7% of our overall grade along with a paper pencil ATI test worth 3% of our overall grade. I took the predictor and scored a 70. I am scheduled to take my NCLEX in January. So I hope the prediction is correct. Wish me luck!

    We had to get a 90% to pass...which is like a 72. I thankfully got a 98%, hope it's good at predicting! I'll let you all know around february

    I did my ATI predictor and got 93% but I am not sure how accurate it is. I know in my nursing class that we disliked ATI. We think it's a waste of time and money.
