About

Overview

Prepping for the boards? Don't miss Questions, Tricks, And Tips For The Echocardiography Boards, a study guide designed to sharpen your echocardiography knowledge and hone your test-taking skills. Armed with hundreds of questions composed by clinicians who previously passed the exam, you won't be coached merely to memorize facts, but will come to understand case-based questions in a clinically meaningful way. Each practice question mimics the exact style of the ASC exam—priming you for the kind of higher-level thinking and derivative knowledge that will set you apart from your peers. Don't miss the invaluable study tips contained within, pooled from an impressive array of former fellows and exam takers, and designed to optimize your test performance. Whether you're in the midst of studying, or are a practitioner looking to dive headfirst into the subject, this text is perfect for any medical professional looking to maintain an exceptional working knowledge of echocardiography.
