ATI Comprehensive RN 2019

I took the 2016 version in October and passed with a 98% probability of passing NCLEX! To study for this exam I immersed myself in ATI questions. There's is a question bank in ATI under Learning Systems 3.0 called adaptive quizzes. I did 50-75 questions every day and wrote down rationales for all the topics I missed or guessed on. The pink comprehensive book is also a great way to review your knowledge but just know that if you do not know a concept or remember it I would look at the other ATI books as those will give you more details. The pink book is only for review. Definitely study lab values because labs will always be on the test. I had a good amount of Med-Surg and Maternal questions on my exam. Review your weaknesses because chances are you will get questions on topics you are not strong on. There are a lot of questions that are repeated but asked in a different way so be mindful of that and read questions carefully. For the Comprehensive Practice A I scored 69.3% and later took practice B and got 75% and for the VATI Comprehensive Practice Predictor got 78%. And finally, for the actual ATI Comprehensive Predictor, I made a 78% ?

Remember you know more than you think you know! Practice every day and you will do great!

Just do saunders exam book questions + ATI comprehensive practice exams + their respective "focused" reviews at the end.

It's a comprehensive review so cramming for this test won't work as it will test you 2 years of nursing school knowledge. You should be fine. Trust yourself. I'm 90% you know the material, just do practice questions to get you in the zone.

I just did ATI questions and made like a 75% which translated to a 90% chance of passing NCLEX (which I did in 75 questions 1st try). I don't think you can score a "99%", even the smartest kid at my school barely cracked the 80's.

Those ATI test are hard to study for, about the only thing you can do is be a good student to start with, read the ati material if you can, and find some flashcards online based on ati stuff. also, dont stay up all night before the test, a fresh mind will go farther than an extra 2-3 hours of study the night before.

There is no way you scored, nor did your entire class as a collective group scored a 99% on that ATI exam LOL. I think you probably mean you scored a score that translated to a 99% chance of passing the NCLEX( I think an 80 overall?).

Anyways, NCLEX is easy. Don't worry. As long as you are making at least B's in all your classes, and you go to a reputable Nursing school, NCLEX will be a breeze. Just continue do questions on Saunders or if you a baller, spend money on UWORLD for questions (great website; a lot of my friends used it).
