Preparation for Licensure (2)

While taking the pharmacology adaptive ATI exam, I think I improved on the goals I had set from taking the adult medical surgical adaptive ATI exam. Some of the goals I had set included improving my concentration, improving my select all that apply performance, and to refrain from changing my answers. Unfortunately, I did not get a chance to answer any select all that apply questions during this practice test. However, to improve my concentration, I did a couple of things. First, I made sure to acknowledge when I started to lose concentration. At these points, I would stop and take a minute to breathe and regroup. I took advantage of the pause button this time during the exam when I took a longer break. This helped me a lot and reduced my feelings of being overwhelmed and restless. I also stopped myself from changing my answers as frequently as I did on the last practice test. I still changed them on a few questions, but I noticed an improvement. For the next assessment, I would definitely like to see my performance on select all that apply questions improve if I have the chance to answer some. Additionally, I would like to carry through my tactic of stopping to take breaks when I need them as I found that to be very helpful. Preventing myself from changing my answers so often is a work in progress, but I think I will continue to improve upon this with the addition of better concentration.
