Just back home from the test. I do better when I read questions carefully (I am ESL person), so I spent two hours on 75 questions. Clicking on 75th I decided if that were not the last one I would take a break. But it was. Out of 75 I had around 50 SATA and one picture. At least twice I had no idea what I was asked about, and none of the SATA questions, I felt that I answered correctly. My first guess is that I was consistently dumb and the program gave up on me after the minimum number of questions. Other than that questions were not any more difficult that ATI preparation site offers.

I got a good pop-up with pvt trick twice 2 and 7 hours after the test. I know I cannot trust it fully but I eased a bit.

I passed! I went out of the testing room with a bad feeling. I don't know the exact number of SATA questions, but out of the first 17, I had 12 of them, after that, I was so frustrated and scared that stopped counting, but I kept having them one after another with very rare multiple-choice questions. I had one drag and drop, one picture and most of my multiple choices were priority and delegation. I had one question on meds and two on diseases I never heard about without much chance to guess an answer. 

My school used ATI a lot for assignments and exams. I got a 99% predictor score in early December. I never studied after graduation, I just waited two weeks and sat the test. I think ATI prepared me well, I read their rationales, usually quite straightforward, but never went beyond that, meaning I did not use their textbooks or focused reviews, I found them way too time-consuming.

I decided to spend as much time as I felt I needed on each question and that strategy served me well.  Luckily I learned that I can run out of time without penalty from the post here so I was not afraid of being slow.

I wish you all good luck!
