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.
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.
Will be buying his stuff again for the cert.
Most awesome radiology lectures/talks hands-down, ever. Straight to the point. Strategy-based and entertaining. Helping me TONS. I love you Prometheus !!
I passed both the Core and certifying exams largely because of you. You should be proud. You taught me more than anyone else in radiology.
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.
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.
It’s difficult to have a perfect study source for a wide subject like Radiology, but this is certainly pound for pound the BEST resource available!
You are a freakin boss. Your books are incredible, the only thing better than your books are The Requisites (just kidding those are awful!). Please start your own residency program.
