For those who have taken ATI exams- how do they compare to NCLEX in terms of difficulty? Do you think having to do them in school helped you prepare for the NCLEX?

For example I've received level 1or 2 on all so far. Thr results page says this means I'm likely to pass NCLeX. Does this bear out in real life?

Thanks

I found that those ATI tests and practice tests were very helpful when I took my RN boards. I was completely comfortable with computer testing and found myself at ease during a tense situation.

My school required ATI. I made in the 97th percentile on the comprehensive test but I thought for sure (and still do haha) that I had failed it. Whereas I felt a little better after finishing the nclex.

I felt like the ATI was way harder than the nclex. However I thought ATI is more about knowing content and nclex is about applying what you know. Since you have to know so much for the ATI tests I think they do a decent job of preparing you for the nclex.
