reasons to choose Davies.

; 1-2-3 Step Ultrasound Education & Test Preparation

A proven, systematic, step-by-step means of preparing for the registry exams that works, not just for test preparation, but also for
clinical education, cross-training, and classroom education. Here's how . . .
Step 1—Review texts
CME-approved didactic texts cover and explain everything on the exam content outlines published by the ARDMS, concisely and pre-
cisely, with illustrations and references. They do such a good job that they are used in ultrasound programs throughout the country
and by professionals for cross-training and continuing medical education.
Step 2—Mock examinations
Test yourself! Our well-known, registry-like practice exams identify your strengths and weaknesses by exam topic, familiarize you
with the format and style of the registry exams, and measure your progress as you study.
Step 3—Q&A memory skills flashcard drills
Great confidence-builders. Reinforce the concepts and principles covered in the Step 1 reviews as well as those you must know to
answer the more complicated registry-style questions in the Step 2 mock exams.

"Zwiebel," as this book has come to be known,
has earned its place as a standard reference
for vascular professionals and multispecialty
sonographers. Our own Vascular Technology
Review (page 3) frequently refers to this text.
Written by leading physicians, Introduction to Vascular Ultrasonography is a
classic and effective survey that reviews the basics (hemodynamics, ultra-
sound physics, spectral analysis, color flow imaging, contrast agents) and
then covers the role of noninvasive studies, anatomy, exam technique, and
interpretation for each of the peripheral vascular subsystems—cerebral,
peripheral arterial and venous, and abdominal vascular. Includes 420 illus-
trations, many in color. Zwiebel deserves a place in your personal and
departmental libraries. For RVT candidates, it is a powerfully effective

The book is divided into four main parts—Abdomen, Gynecology, Obstetrics,

Each chapter begins, proceeds, and concludes in the same clinically

! Objectives ! Case studies for discussion

Reader-friendly tables and boxed information highlight key concepts and

We like this book. It develops and promotes critical thinking when and
where it counts. At the same time it is a well-formatted quick reference for
departments, a clinically oriented textbook for students heading out
to clinical sites, and a valuable adjunct to registry prep—specifically
with regard to the applied-knowledge questions that typify the
ARDMS exams. It’s also a very nice complement to our mock exams

The Davies CME products and activities can be used for CME credit any

credit later, you can purchase and use our state-of-the-art test-prep prod-
ucts now and apply for CME credit later, when you need it. And—this is
important—we do NOT make you pay in advance for processing your CME
application. Don’t be deceived by competing claims that CME costs are
included in the price of a product. You are simply prepaying for a service
that you have not yet received. This isn’t fair to you or to customers who
never will apply for CME credit.

instance, a Registrant must earn at least 30 CMEs between January 1,
2006 and December 31, 2008–a three-year CME period that consists of
the years 2006, 2007, and 2008. The next three-year CME period would
be 2009, 2010, 2011. The next three-year CME period after that would be
2012, 2013, 2014. And so on.

To help you earn and maintain your registry status, Davies offers a broad
range of SDMS-approved CME activities in a variety of formats—books,
videos, CD-ROMs, and flashcards. It used to be that you had to attend
expensive meetings in inconvenient locations to earn CME credits. Now
you can earn them by studying exactly what you want, when you want, in
the format you want, at a price that is way more than reasonable.

“You saved my life. Now that I’ve met my CME requirements I can calm down. My hus-
band will be so happy. And your books are just great. They helped me pass my exams.”
—Jean Wilson, RDMS

“Davies Publishing really went the extra mile to help me complete my CME on time.”
—Ann V. Johnson, RDMS

"You are doing a wonderful job for the healthcare professionals in ultrasound.
Thank you. Keep it up."—Shaukat Mahmood, MD

Guessing. Passing the exam depends on the number of correct answers you
page 20 for more infor-
make. Because unanswered questions are counted as incorrect, it makes
sense to guess when all else fails. The ARDMS advises that "it is to the candi-
date’s advantage to answer all possible questions." Guessing alone improves
your chances of scoring a point from 0 (for an unanswered question) to 20%
(for randomly picking one of five possible answers). Eliminating answer choic-
es you know or suspect are wrong further improves your odds of success. By
using your knowledge to eliminate three of the five answer choices before
guessing, for example, you increase your odds of scoring a point to 50%.
Don’t second-guess. The common wisdom is that your first answer is more
likely than revised answers to be correct. Actual studies indicate that when
you return to a question and change the answer, you’ll probably be wrong.
Change an answer only if you’re quite sure you should.
Pace yourself; watch the time. Work methodically and quickly to answer
those you know, and make your best guesses at the gnarly ones. Leave no
question unanswered.
Don’t despair 50 minutes into the exam. At some point you may feel that
things just aren’t going well. Take 10 seconds to breathe deeply—in for a
count of five, out for a count of five. Relax. Recall that you need only about
three out of four correct answers to pass. If you’ve prepared reasonably well, a
passing score is attainable even if you feel sweat running down your back.
