Are ECHO...THE NOTEBOOK & THE WORKBOOK good study guides for the ARDMS &/or CCI exams?

My textbooks contain most of the material on the adult echo exams, but not 100%.  I suggest comparing ECHO...THE NOTEBOOK 6.5 Table of Contents with the test outlines at ardms.org and cci-online.org.  

 

What makes ECHO...THE NOTEBOOK & THE WORKBOOK unique?

ECHO...THE NOTEBOOK & THE WORKBOOK are affordable, useful, and comprehendible by all.  The outline format is packed with definitions, sketches, diagrams, echocardiography images, and summaries that bring a more simplistic & visual approach to learning.  Check out the entire Table of Contents.
