I recently graduated from school. I have passed the ARRT and physics portion of the ARDMS. I either need to take the ABD or OB/GYN registry. If anyone has one of those registry CD's from Davies please let me know! Thanks :)

Hi
I was wondering, how much prep did you need for ARRT?

Danna in Alabaster, Alabama said: Hello everyone! Just wanted to share my two cents worth while things are still fresh on my mind. This was the first time I had taken any of the tests. I passed the SPI exam Aug 6th and the Vascular tech registry today. My materials for the SPI were mainly eddleman's book and cards. I would also recommend a 5 day access on his x zone site or buy the book from his website and you get a free 2 week access that you determine when to start! I also took practice exams on a site called sonoreview (I believe) they had 10 120 question exams. For the vascular registry, I did have a copy of the eddelman seminar book although I did not attend the seminar, the vascular practice cards (new for 2010) and the davies note cards (800 questions with explainations). The book I feel you need for the vascular registry is Rumwell's vacular technology. Eddelman's seminar book is a cliff note version of this book. They are written by the same person. The key to succeeding to me, is the time you put into it. I spent every hour I could studying and on weekends, studied day and night and did nothing else. Practiced taking the tests I mentioned online to get into that habit and signed up for the 5 day access to x zone (vascular) right before the test, but allowed a couple of days to research the answers. Neither of these exams are just a memorize the answer type test. You must understand the question and the answer. I personally do not recommend the questions on the ARDMS website because they do not give you the answers and you never know what you missed or got right or a copy of the questions for 30.00$ Did have a voice recorder though. I hope this helps and best of luck to you guys!

would you have the eldeman workbook i could buy?

monica in Virginia Beach, Virginia said: I don't know who said that OB was the easiest to pass...I love OB & have attempted the test twice now...at this point, I am very discouraged. One cannot possible know every anomalie there is in utero. I have studied the Davies OB/GYN Cd, Appleton & Lange & and a few other books...Does anyone out there know another source to review/study?

Monica:
I completely agree. I was lucky enough to pass on the first try using Davies and the Stephen Penny book. BUT, I found it VERY difficult because like you said, you need to know all of the bazillion anomalies that goes with each abnormality, which I found so hard!! And my test was VERY heavy on pelvic muscles and vasculature....which I hadn't studied as in depth for. Try the Penny book. It was helpful in reviewing, and I found Davies useful for the questions.

I have Davies Vascular Scanning book (A guide for the complete beginner), Flashcard (Newest edition), and Mock Exam CD (this CD is for Mac computer only). The total of 38 hours CME Credits, and yes, I used these materials to pass my RVT. I'm asking for $150 shipping included.

Hi Needing a Job,

I see that you went to Florida Institute of Ultrasound. I'm thinking about attending their program starting in January of next year. I have some questions about the school I'd like to ask if you don't mind. Do you mind if I send you an email? Thanks.

Needing a job in Everett, Washington said: Yes.. I did go to the FIU. I think the good ol days are long gone. I realize how important the registry is, and have been attempting to pass.... I feel if I don't, then there is no chance of finding a job.... It's pretty discouraging. Have you gotten registered? Any suggestions for me?

Hi CCIQuestions,

I saw on here that you graduted from Florida Institute of Ultrasound. I'm thinking about starting classes there in January of 2013. I'm doing research on some ultrasound schools, so would you mind if I asked you a couple questions about FIU. May I email you? Thanks.

CCIQuestions in Sevierville, Tennessee said: You went to the Florida Institute of Ultrasound ....didn't you? I graduated from their program in 1995. I don't know how the school is now but we had a pretty good program back in the old days and some good instructors. I was lucky because my wife at the time was already working in the field and we had several hospitals in our area about 2 hours from Pensacola where we could work that had more ultrasounds than we could do. I arranged all of my scan time (except for scan lab night) at the hospitals where my wife worked so I was able to get an excess of scanning time without any competition. That gave me an advantage and one hospital hired me in 1995 before I even finished the FIU program. Eventually I was working 4 hospitals at one time in the Florida Panhandle and had more than I could do.
I think those types of opportunities are gone and registry along with at least two years of experience is a big deal to most employers. Having scan experience is very important to radiologists since they rely on what we see and document.

I graduated from the Florida Institute of Ultrasound in December 2011. I found out I was pregnant, had complications, now, my son's 4 months old and I can't find a job. I don't have any post-graduate experience and I'm not registered. I went to school, because I knew I would enjoy it. I love OB/GYN, if I found a job in that I know I'd love to stay there for years. I knew the money was good, but I really knew I'd love it. In April I'll have to pay back my student loans, it's starting to really be about the money. I NEED A JOB. It's so miserable knowing that I workded so hard and can't find a job. I wouldn't wish this on anybody. I wish someone would just give me a chance. I CAN scan!! I NEVER failed a scan test. I enjoy it. Anyway, it sucks :'( and I envy everyone with a job...

I am currently studying for my RVT. I took the old physics but now I have to take the SPI. I heard the SPI was much easier then the older physics from ARDMS. I have the ESP physics and vascular technology book, and the Davies vascular cd. Is their anything else I need to study for both exams? Also, did anyone here take them on the same day? Or should I space them out? Thanks.

Hi Jenni I would space them out ! too much material to read and comprehend. I am taking RVT on february 14 the only material that I am studying is Davies mock exam, davies flash cards by the way I don't think the SPI is a lot easier in my case one less thing to worry about! let me know when you pass your RVT good luck

RVT in Liverpool, New York said: Everything you need to pass is listed on the outline from the ARDMS website. I would recommend going through those and completing notes on every topic listed. I went to a vascular program but I picked a lot of things up from the Davies Review (600 question review book) or they have a CD. Know EVERYTHING about Arterial and Venous. Study Carotids, minimal TCD. Know your velocities of cranial vessels, depths, and flow (away/towards) Very minimal abdominal. Study Renals and anatomy. If you need any help, let me know. I can go back through my notes.

I am getting ready to study for the vascular registry. How was the physics portion of the exam? I was going to get the Davies book, I have had alot of people say that was helpful. But I am nervous about it.
