    I just took the proctored ATI Fundamentals test yesterday, actually (though I'm not sure if it was A or B). We had to score above a 67%, but a lot of people failed because there's so much information that wasn't taught. If your test is anything like mine, I'd bone up on pediatrics, certain mobility issues (walking with a cane, namely), and quickly review trachs/NG tube insertion. If you have any questions, feel free to PM me.

    I just took the ATI Fundamentals proctored exam earlier this week. I'm not sure if it was A or B either. Although I did take both the A and B practice ATI exams. Definitely study walking with a cane and crutches and infant developmental stages and safety. We also had some random education and public health questions. As far as I know, everyone in my class scored at least a 1 (on the 0-3 scale). Let me know if you have any questions.

    Hi there,

    I have a question -- did you study the ATI booklet that they gave everyone? It is over 400 pages. Did that help? Was it about all you needed to review from? Thanks!!

    I used the ATI Fundamentals of Nursing review book along with taking the practice exams to prepare for the proctored exam. Once you complete the practice exam, it can create a customized study guide for you that focuses on your weak areas. That's all I did as far as review and preparing.

    This was last year for me and I remember freaking out over it. Not everything is in the ATI book. A lot of the details will be in your text. From this point onward, you will need to REMEMBER those details that are covered in your Fundamentals book. Don't just assume that you can forget it and pass it off to the UAP or the Tech to show/teach your patient. It will be your responsibility so you need to know. (plus, many days you won't have anyone else on the floor).

    The ATI books are good, and make a wonderful review guide when used IN ADDITION to your textbook and any sources you receive in class (power points, handouts, etc).

    Good luck on your proctored test!

    Were the questions comparable to the ones in the book and practice exams?

    My school gives us the ATI at the end of every other quarter. We have never been given a book or study materials of any kind. Is that odd?

    It is not used to pass us on in the program.

    Yea that is weird. Did you feel that if you have been doing generally well in fundamentals then you will know the material or does it come out of no where?

    Yes, it was pretty much over the same stuff we did that quarter, but the questions were worded kind of weird and they were tricky.

    Our scores came out Level 1 through 3, with 1 being the lowest, 3 the highest. I got a level 2.

    Ok goo because I don't feel like wasting my time reading the book when it's worth very little in our program especially with exams the same week as the ATI.

    What did you feel was the most tricky or what I should look over? Thanks for your help!

    Just basic fundamentals concepts. More than a few on tube feedings, a couple of infant questions that we didn't cover at all in Fundamentals.

    It was hard to get too excited about it when it really didn't matter much. I didn't strain myself because it was finals week and that was more important! Most people got level 2, I heard very few 3's.
