    I am in the same boat. I passed my clinical and class with an A and just failed my ATI exam with one more shot or I have to re-take the class and clinical. I know the material very well (studied the book to death and practiced online) but got very nervous and couldn't concentrate. I suggest reviewing test taking strategies, timing yourself with an NCLEX book, and trying to remain calm during the test. That's my strategy. Good Luck!

    Honestly what I said above, "I suggest reviewing test taking strategies, timing yourself with an NCLEX book, and trying to remain calm during the test. That's my strategy." I knew the material. They pick simple stuff. It's the format of the questions that you need to practice that will help. I didn't need to study the ATI book anymore....it didn't help me. I practiced with NCLEX books, doing questions for hours, and I reviewed test taking strategies ( the general looking for the stem, aware of the type of question....like an assessment question needs an assessment answer, watch out for negative polarity, ID key words and concepts and remember to apply Maslow and the ABC's of life support for priority questions, you should also know what tasks you can delegate and to whom. There are always 2 great answers but only one right one. If you don't have a test strategy book, go online for info or get to the book store and buy one. The same for the NCLEX book......buy one. I used Mosby's even on the day of the test to get into the test thinking mode before the test for about 20 mins. If you have this CD, go to Med Surg and the boxes for "phases of the nursing process, critical thinking, and client needs" appear. I found doing these prepared me the same type of questions that appeared on the exam. As for remembering what was on the exam.....it was all basic stuff. None of the questions were difficult knowledge wise, it was knowing how to answer the type of question that made me excel. I have to take an ATI for EVERY nursing class I have and if I fail the test, I fail the class and have to retake the clinical and class again.....so, trust me, I HAD to figure this out or transfer to another college! With what I did, I feel confident that I will do well on my future ATI exams. You can do this! If you know the material, put down that ATI book and study with questions. That ATI book will not help you pass. The test is basic knowledge and test technique. I failed the first test with a level one and below 50 score nationwide the first time.....I did not study that ATI book anymore, only test techniques and passed at the highest level the second time. So, I knew the material......I didn't know how to take the test. Good Luck! Practice and you will be well. Let me know how you do.

    I can honestly say that the best way to pass the ATI is to review their online practice exams. I did not pass the first time because I only did a few of the practice exams but the second time, I passed because I took every online ATI practice test we had access to and I made sure I understood the rationales. I also used my results from my first ATI test to carefully review the topics it listed as my weaknesses. My list of weaknesses were overwhelming to look up and study but I tackled it one step at a time. The ATI books don't go into a lot of detail BUT its the only book you need to study from because the questions come right from the book. Pay particular attention to the highlighted words or sentences. Don't waste your time studying from other NCLEX books. If you are taking the ATI test, study from the ATI books.

    The first time, I took comprehensive test A....second time was test B. In my opinion test B's questions were simpler to understand. Or maybe becuase I studied more the second time. Also, I made sure the day before my exam, I did not take anymore online tests. I just reviewed a few of the topics and got a good nights rest. Anyway, I am so happy and thankful that I passed. Not passing the first time breaks down your morale but what can you do but just get up and try again.
