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.
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 🙂
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
Passed the boards using only your Crack the Core book and videos to study.
