  1. How did you prepare for the ATI? How did you do?

    I didn't prepare. The nursing class content was enough and personally I found our schools tests harder than the ATI's.

    I got level three's on the OB and peds ATI's.

    My school passes out ATI books and CD's. To be honest I barely use them. Some people swear by them. I have gotten 99% on all of the ones I have taken so far ( Fundamentals, Endocrine, Psych, OB). I can't do the CD''s literally some lady sitting at a desk lecturing. I occasionally flip through the book to read on the topics we DONT cover in class...but for the most part what I learn in lecture has been enough to have me sail through them.

    Aside from the videos and books, we had online practice exams. Your school should have the ID numbers and passwords.

    Take the book and go through each chapter and do the practice questions. If you do really good with them, skip that chapter, if you miss more than 2 or 3, then read the chapter. On my maternal-newborn ATI they took about three practice questions out of the book and put them in the test, so that was three easy questions.

    I did that and the ATI wasn't as tough as I thought. You could always read through your class notes if you wanted to.

    But since it's so much stuff to study for, concentrate on the stuff you don't know before you just start reading everything.

    I found the books helpful when I found areas that weren't covered in class....
