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.
Although these videos are aimed at the US boards, I found them incredibly helpful for the UK FRCR exam. The style of teaching is engaging and the information is accurate and concise. The great thing about videos as apposed to other learning resources is that you can learn a great deal when passiveley listening but of course you have to consolidate that knowledge with further reading and practice. Thank you for making revision more enjoyable!
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!
Learned a ton from your book, I wish I started using it earlier on. The way you present things just clicks!
Just took the test this year and passed. The Crack the Core books are a must use! The way he explains it makes things, even extremely dry concepts, entertaining and simple. I cannot recommend this material strongly enough.
Prometheus and his study materials are the reason me and my 7 co-residents all passed the Core Exam. All of his resources are high yield and should be essential to any resident's study plan!
I would like to thank you for writing and continually updating crack the core and war machine. I would be a worse radiologist and would not have passed the core without these books. Your sense of humor and straight to the point explanations are greatly appreciated. For the sake of future residency classes, please continue fighting the good fight.
Hey Prometheus, First of all, I just want to say you're a boss. Thanks for making radiology cool and understandable for not just me, but for all the radiology residents across the US. If it wasn't for you, I honestly don't know what I would do. I'd probably be in a heap of trouble.
