Clear, concise, smart, high yield.
A great resource to explain and reinforce the important information from the RSNA modules. Smart teaching tools with interactive diagrams and built in flash cards for important numbers and equations; “Know these cold:” The book is directed at the new core exam. Being an iBook, I have already received free updates and new content.
The book does have some nice cases, but does not come close to covering the breadth or depth of knowledge needed for the Core exam. The “explanations” frequently just link to outside articles or outside websites, offering little original content of their own. This should not be used as a primary study resource, although is good as an adjunct to studying just to see some more cases.
Excellent and focused!
This is by far one of the best book for the CORE exam especially in review of the physics section. The RSNA modules are nicely summarized here and Ram has really explained everything very well and has pointed out the high yield information that is necessary to pass this exam. I feel much more confident now after reading this book and writing notes from the Physics section. The material is very well laid out and the diagrams and pictures are excellent.
