I just passed the ARDMS SPI test and used an old version of Kremkau's "Diagnostic Ultrasound Principles and Instruments" and Owens "Ultrasound Physics Review" to review. I recommend this book if you are just looking for questions and answers (more than 500 hundred plus 120 for the CME with no answers and the CME costs an extra $40). The book goes into more detail than the test especially on vascular. This book will not help you learn the material but it will be helpful to review especially if you do not take a review class.

I recently graduated from an accredited ultrasound program and I bought this book as a review. I also reviewed my physics textbook and powerpoint notes and tests from my physics classes (2 semesters worth) to prepare for the SPI. I passed the SPI on the first try but there's no way I would have passed ONLY with this review book. Let me say though that every person's test is different. The questions come from a bank so I think some tests are much harder than others. Others in my class told me questions that were on their tests and they all seemed pretty straightfoward. My test was VERY difficult, and had MANY questions that I had never seen before (ex. what is poise a measure of? the answer was viscosity). I would say this reviewbook covers about 50% of what was on my exam. The other 25% that was not in the book was covered in my school coursework and the other 25% I completely guessed. The only area from the SPI score report that said "may require further study" was Doppler instrumentation and hemodynamics. I got "excellent" in patient care, safety, and communication and "satisfactory" in the other 4 areas. I studied for 7 days about 6 hours a day and I made flashcards based on my textbook, class powerpoints, old tests, and this reviewbook. I completed the test with 30 minutes to spare. This book does cover a lot of topics that are on the SPI and will prepare you for the TYPES of questions that are on the SPI but the actual questions are different. Good Luck!!

Just passed the ARDMS SPI exam, and I give all the credit to this book. It's a question and answer format with over 500 questions and detailed easy to understand answers. I used this book in conjuction with the Pegasus review, and found them to be a great compliment to each other. This book will also get you used to the type of questions (wording and format) that they use on the exam. Never in my life did I think I'd gush over a physics book, but I'm gushing...it's a must have study tool to pass!!! Good Luck!

I used this book to prepare for my SPI Exam. The text and explanation are excellent, easy to read and understand. The book is much better than the other books I used in the past. I look forward to using other products from them.

I passed on the first try with no formal education from studying this book and attending the Edelman seminar. The questions are very difficult and complicated just as they will be on the test. The explanations were extremely valuable to me as I am a logical learner and keep a poor memory. I studied a few Sono textbooks but I credit my success primarily to this book.

Wonderful book! Along with Understanding Ultrasound Physics book by Edelman (just to look up things I didn't quite grasp) I studied the crap out of this book for two weeks and passed!

I purchased this book for my boards. My teacher had suggested it and I got it off here because it was a little cheaper. It came in perfect condition and helped me pass my boards! I bought the ob review and abdomen review off of amazon as well and hopefully I pass those too!
