Boards Buster is the perfect compliment to crack the core. Prometheus narrates some of the more complex sections of the books and also drops some additional knowledge. Not everyone in my program used the videos - but I used this to my advantage as I felt better prepared to dominate the exam.
This is the only comprehensive review system that exists. While it may not teach you everything, it teaches you what you need to PASS and be comfortable.
Normally i dont care enough to review anything. In fact this is the first review i have ever written in my entire life. I leave that for the betas. But I just gotta say your videos are perfect. The high yield points presented in such a concise manner. Also I 100% agree with all you side points which makes me laugh out loud and keeps me going. So i guess thanks, for whatever its worth.

Crack the Core is essential to passing the Core exam. Every resident at my institution used it as their primary resource for both the imaging diagnosis and physics portions of the exam. I felt as prepared as I could have been thanks to Prometheus and his resources. These books will be useful far past the core exam, and I’ve seen many fellows that come from outside programs frequently referencing it. Thanks Prometheus, I couldn’t have done it without you.
studied maybe a total of 20 hours outside work the first 2.5 years of radiology residency. Not an exaggeration. Feeling the pressure, I decided to place my trust in Prometheus. Read all of his books, latest edition x2 and all the rad videos x3. Supplemented with a few questions banks and ipad physics app. Rest assured this is all you need. Forget Core Radiology by what's his name and burn your copy of Brant and Helms to keep you warm while you use Prometheus material. It is all you need. Ended up > 500 on the exam.
