Hi Mandy. I was wondering if you ever got the echo loop DVDs and if so, would you be willing to sell them. I'm taking my boards soon and would like to find a set as well.
Thnx much!

Instead of starting a new thread, i figured i'd post it here:
What is an ARDMS Registry Exam? Why is it important? I understand that without it I have about a 97% chance of NOT getting a job {a better chance at hitting the power ball} so why is schooling and graduating with a degree not enough to say that you know what you are doing?

Is there a price to take the test? If I fail the registry exam, how often can I retake it? {do I have to wait a period of time before retaking it}

If I pass the registry do I ever have to retake the exam in the future to keep my registry up-to-date or is that not valid for this type of field?
What types of questions are on the test? I was told the test is 3 hours long…??o_O
Someone says the test is just basic English and Math but someone else says it’s a mixture of Physics and basic Medical Terminologies}? I went on the ARDMS.ORG website to get an idea of what it is but in order to see a sample test I’d have to pay $25.

I just want an idea of what I should prepare for here.
Thanks so much!

Registry is important. It is a national (possibly international)standard that shows you know what you are doing. On top of that, for the government to reimburst payments and insurance issues, most labs aim to be Accredited by ICAEL and part of getting ICAEL is having registered technologists.

The price to take the physics test is $200, each specialty test, $250.

As for retaking, I am not sure as I passed my adult, peds and vascular 1st time.

The outline for the test is on their website and to keep registry up to date, you take CMEs.

Thank you, that was helpful.
Btw, what is CME?

I haven't begun school yet and i am sure i'll learn all of this along the way. I just want an ideal of what all i'd be going through to prepare myself and when i read alot of peoples comments they use acronyms like every beginner is suppose to really know what it means.

Thanx again.

In order to keep your credential after achieving it, you have to keep up with "Continuing Medical Education". YOu need to have 30 cme's every Triennial or 3yrs. Everyone gets most of their CME's either online or going to a course. Getting a registry done is 15 cmes.

Does anyone know if it is possible to obtain the 2D Practice Exam videos, to which the questions are in the ESP Adult Echo by David Adams?

Thanks!
