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.
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.
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!!
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).
