Are ATI assessments similar to practice exams?


In a few days I am taking the Maternal Newborn and Nursing Care of Children proctored assessments. I am wondering if they are similar to the assessments? I have taken the assessments, A and B in each, wrote them down, and created flashcards. Wondering if this will be helpful?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Not at all. The proctored exams use an entirely different pool of questions and you'll find that the exams are not consistent with the books. I actually just made a thread about my issues with ATI.

Any suggestions on the best way to prepare?

I felt like the practice tests were always more difficult than the actual proctored exams. I got most of my study material from my lecture notes, powerpoints, and textbook. I do read through the ATI books, but the bulk of studying is done in actual class material. I've always gotten a level 3 (except for the level 2 I got on pharm-ugh).

Ok, Thank you! I've taken the assessments and am getting 96-98%. So hoping this means I will do well on the exams. One would think they model the assessments to be similar to the exams!

Thanks again!
