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.
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.
Prometheus provided a refreshing synthesis of the board contents and conveyed them in a succinct, clear, and occasionally comical fashion.
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”).
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 online review course was a great compliment to the book series. I found this online review course much more helpful than the week long review course I attended. Crack the Core series is the boards review standard. Thank you for the effort you put into both these resources. You did and wonderful job.
I passed the CORE because of you!! Thank you so much for all the hard work compiling these resources. You are the MAN!! The Goljan of the CORE!!
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.
