I just graduated a few weeks back & studying with Saunders as well. I did the monthly calendar thing, & also went to RNQuiz.com which I use for practice questions. I haven't received my ATT yet but Im hoping for Mid-July or Early Aug. at the latest. Good Luck on studying, Im finding it to be very difficult to concentrate...
I just registered yesterday and paid my $200 fee to pearson vue. I emailed them to get back to me with my ATT. My friend who paid the fee in March didn't get her ATT until two days ago AND she had to call them for it which it took them too long. I just emailed them for my ATT today and hopefully I'll get something in a few days.
I don't think there is too much of a difference in the question types from the Saunders review book compared to the Saunders Q&A book. After I do the questions for each chapter according to my assessment calendar, I plan to go all out on doing mostly physiological integrity and safe and effective care management type questions (application type) since it seems to be my weak points according the many 100Q exams I've been taking.
Hmm..it feels as if I'm just using the Saunders review book as a "reference" to whatever information I need to look back upon. Such as last night around 1130PM, I did a 100Q exam on Eye/Ear and got 64%, but I was already fatigued from long hours of doing a 100Q cardiac exam and reviewing rationales earlier in the day and then going to the gym to lift intensely hard chest and triceps. So here i am now, at starbucks around noon and reviewing the rationales to the eye/ear section since I forgot what menieres, otosclerosis, and some of the other eye/ear terms were. I now know that sodium and fluid restriction is required in Menieres syndrome since I review the rationales!
This method of studying seems to have less of a "burnout" potential from too much/long studying in one period.
