ATI RN COMPREHENSIVE EXAM

Posted
by Bhoneyb Bhoneyb (New) New Student

Literally re-taking my ATI Exit Exam in a few weeks. I wanted to know if anyone had any useful resources in scoring a 99% on their exam. Please DM me. I need serious help. I have been practicing ATI about 250 questions daily, but would like any additional tips, please.

Did you do a focused review of all the topics you need to improve on? My advice would be to really go over the material in the ATI books corresponding to the topics you need to improve. If there's anything you don't understand, utilize Khan Academy, RegisteredNurse RN, any of your textbooks, etc. until you do understand. You're not going to be able to navigate the questions if you don't understand the concepts behind them; critical thinking requires understanding. Once you understand each concept, then you should focus on any associated practice questions. Also, make sure to study the rationales behind each choice, not just the correct choice. Understanding why something is incorrect is just as important as understanding why a choice is correct.

I have yet to take the exit exam, but I've managed to score level 1 on each of the ATI exams I've taken in the past, and this is the method I've always used.

Good luck!

@YouCanCallMeFrank Thank you for the advise.

I will continue to focus on reviewing where I am most weak. Focused review is one of my favorite tools that ATI has to offer since it helps me better understand what it is I need to further review. For instance, Basic care and comfort, safety, or priority per topic. I have not used other books this time around to review concepts that I am having trouble on because, I feel that I become to hyper focused on more than whats necessary. Thank you 🙂

Also, the one complaint I have about ATI is how few questions they offer in their study guides. If you don't mind spending a couple of dollars, I recommend ATI's RN Mentor app; I think it costs like $5 or something. Either way, it's ATI so the questions and rationales would definitely apply, you can do the questions everywhere, so it's super convenient, and the question bank is So. Much. Bigger. Than the books.

@YouCanCallMeFrank Hehe, it is okay. I understood 🙂

My study guide for the ATI comprehensive is posted in my profile and posted on another thread. Study that and you will pass no problems. I’ve given that to many student nurses who have struggled with ATI. Good luck!
