I am scheduled to take my ATI Final on 3/16 which deals with Med Surge I & II.
I took Med Surge I last semester - August 2012-December 2012 and am currently wrapping up Med Surge II. The ATI Final will be over material covered in BOTH classes. I have been doing many practice exams offered on the ATI website, I have the ATI Application for my iPhone and have been reading over the ATI Med Surge book...but I still feel that this is not enough - call me crazy
I was wondering if anyone else has taken this exam and if you have any other study ideas/tips?
Thanks in advance!

Well seeing how they just changed the test plan and elevated the pass rate for both versions of the NCLEX starting April 2013, I'm not just going to fully rely on ATI, partially because their practice tests and books are based off of the 2010 test plan. I'm sure a good bit of the info for the NCLEX is still relevant, as there were no major changes to the test plan. I'll utilize various resources, which is supposed to increase your chances of being able to answered a varied type of questions.
As I stated earlier, I got a 97% chance of passing NCLEX on the first try according to ATIs comp predictor when i took it in January, but I struggled on and off with various ATI subjects before that. I don't want to get too confident (which I highly doubt will be a problem, lol) or too comfortable with one resources type of questions.
I've always been told never to just study 1 resource. I really like Exam Cram and istudy NCLEX app. Saunders is good too.
