This week I went on the ATS website to complete a practice PATI test. I think it's easier than the actual test, but it was really good to see what kind of qestions are included. I have a few sample ones here (I didn't include any that has diagrams or pictures because they wouldn't copy on my blog). Why don't you have a go? The answers are at the bottom.
