Ready to . . . SCORE? You Can!
Davies 123 Step Ultrasound Education & Test Preparation is a proven, systematic, step-by-step means of preparing for the registry examinations that works, not only for test preparation, but also for clinical education, cross-training, and classroom education. Heres how . . .
Step 1Review Texts:
CME-approved didactic texts cover and explain everything on the exam content outlines published by the ARDMS, concisely and precisely, with illustrations and references. They do such a good job that they are used in ultrasound programs throughout the country and by professionals for cross-training and continuing medical education.
Test yourself! Our well-known, registry-like practice exams identify your strengths and weaknesses by exam topic, familiarize you with the format and style of the registry exams, and measure your progress as you study. (Now available in both book & CD-ROM versions!)
Step 3Q&A Memory Skills Flashcard Drills:
Great confidence builders! ScoreCards allow you to reinforce the concepts and principles covered in Step 1 reviews as well as those you must know to answer the more complicated registry-style questions in the Step 2 mock exams.
Life Is A Test . . . Pass It!
