My school uses ATI testing.
I have scored level 2 or 3 on nearly every test.
My lowest is a 70% in pharmacology (level 2), next is Mental health 84% (level 2), next is management 85% (level 3), next is med/surg 71.1% (level 3).
On the newest (pre-use) comprehensive predictor I got an 80% (unleveled becuase it has not been used before.
I have a 91.27 (approximately) overall in my LPN program.
DO you think I will pass?
My school is fully confident I will, but I am scared out of my mind.

Have you been doing practice questions? In my opinion, that is the way to study for the NCLEX. You build up your knowledge base that way and it also helps get you into that NCLEX-thinking format and thinking like a nurse.
Although the ATI and the HESI are good practice for the NCLEX, they shouldn't be used solely alone in preparing for the exam. My school used HESI and my entire class passed. We also had a 100% pass rate on the NCLEX. There are also students who bombed the HESI (both times) and still passed the NCLEX on their first try. Finally, there are also students who passed the HESI with flying colors and then failed the NCLEX because they feel like they didn't have to study.
So basically...just do a lot of practice questions!

Only practice questiosn I have are the tests (proctored and unproctored) and ATI books the school gives us. I found the books written by Saunders and Kaplan (for other things I have taken) to be as worth while as an oil retention enema to a person with profound diahrrea (I know wonderful thoughts)

Predictor tests are known to go both ways, so don't bank everything on them. If you believe you are prepared, then go ahead and test. Good luck.
