Prometheus provided a refreshing synthesis of the board contents and conveyed them in a succinct, clear, and occasionally comical fashion.
I have failed my core twice before being introduced to Titan Radiology video series. I listened to them everywhere, while driving, on the treadmill and while strolling with my kids and guess what? They definitely helped me to pass my core and certification as well. The products were the only source for my general section study in certifying exam. And hell yea! I'm board certified now. So thank you very much 🙂
I used CTC for both the ABR CORE and the written portion of the Canadian exam. Speaking specifically to the Canadian exam it was far better than Primer and other resources I had tried for targeting our MCQ section. It would not be sufficient for Oral exam prep, but its great as a starting point for organizing your knowledge base. He has a fantastic, engaging style of writing which kept me motivated for the long slog through 2 board exams this past year, both of which were successfully passed!
The material tested by the core exam is immense and intimidating. The board review course and the Crack the Core Exam books provided a focused, high-yield method to approach studying for such a seemingly overwhelming exam. I listened to the entire board review course about 4-5 times and read through the review books twice. I also read through the dedicated physics review book, The War Machine, and the case companion books. I am confident that this helped me feel prepared for the core exam, dominate each section and pass the exam with a score well above the passing cut-offs.
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.
The videos are a great way to study and get through the book quickly. The video illustrations/diagrams also helped explain the physics concepts very well.
Passed the boards using only your Crack the Core book and videos to study.
THANK YOU for your enthusiasm and effort! By far the easiest videos to sit through – your sense of humor was MUCH appreciated, and helped immensely when trying to suffer through otherwise mundane material (i.e. “Non-interpretive skills”).
