A good idea prior to the exam is to listen to an ATISATIS —Automatic Terminal Information Service broadcast (many are available online) and memorise it - this will give you both the content and order. It is also prudent to note what is not included in the ATISATIS —Automatic Terminal Information Service: Transition Altitude (this is published).
