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.
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!
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!
All I wanted to do was pass my boards. I studied two question banks, Crack the Core, Board Buster videos and prayed for two months (prayers are ongoing). I didn't just pass, I did well and scored 560 (350 is passing). The Board Buster lectures were good and I would have watched them more but I had to turn them off around my wife and kids because of Lionheart's cursing.
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.
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!
Worked well for me! Used all the books and the review course~~ it was great! many thanks
