If I have the book should I buy the online practice exams too? I also use study apps

Supposedly the online tests is formatted after the real test and will time you and situationally prepares you for the test too. Any help is great but for me, I found it to be quite expensive so I just used the official ATI book and a 5 practice test Mcgraw book. Practice tests are very useful because it can help you gauge what your weak points are. If you have the money to spend, I do suggest you buy the online test. But if you are like me and is trying to save money, you can get by with free online tests and quizzes. I didn't buy the online test and still ended up with 91.3 on my first attempt so it's doable. You just gotta be smart with how you study to improve your weaknesses.

the online practice tesr from the ATI website does not time you the way the real exam does .. The time is unlimited it seems
