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

Yes! ECHO...THE NOTEBOOK 7 contains most of the material on the adult echo exams, but not 100%.  ECHO...THE WORKBOOK 7 has 1030 practice questions that coincide perfectly with ECHO...THE NOTEBOOK 7 and improve retention of the material.



ECHO...THE NOTEBOOK 7 & THE WORKBOOK 7 are affordable, useful, and comprehensible by all.  The outline format is packed with definitions, sketches, diagrams, echo images, and summaries that bring a more simplistic & visual approach to learning. THE WORKBOOK 7 questions include multiple choice, true/false, matching, and even some coloring sections!


Does ECHO...THE WORKBOOK include an answer key?

ECHO...THE WORKBOOK 7 is used as a textbook/test book in programs around the world, it is the post-test for the CME activity, and every single question is answered in THE NOTEBOOK 7; therefore, it does not come with an "answer key."  If you ready & study you won't have any trouble answering the questions!
