holes/craters in concrete slab

I recently had carpet removed from my cement slab. Tack strips were nailed to the slab. When they were removed, there are now holes/craters. I'm going to install a floating floor.

What is the best preparation to repair the holes/craters before I lay the planks?

Why do you need to fill them?
A floating floor could care less about a few holes.
What type floating floor do you plan on installing?
There a whole process if you plan on installing laminite, and some are not rated for below grade so keep that in mind when picing one.
Has there been a moisture test done?
