American Board of Radiology Core Resources

The American Board of Radiology (ABR) Core experience blog I posted in July 2015 makes up about 25% of my blog traffic, so I decided to put together selected online resources that I found helpful.

Study Strategy. 

Check my summary blog for details. In general:
  • I love flashcards. I cut up printing paper into 1/16 (keep folding it), hole punch one corner and keep them in 1 inch rings. I write and draw all facts, images, etc and review them everyday.
  • I study subjects at random, rather than by subject to avoid over / under emphasizing the last 3 months leading up to the boards
  • if you're a 3rd year resident, and I had to do it again, I would go through The Core book (there is a pdf version) and make flashcards of each chapter and review the flashcards regularly. The Core has 90-95% that you need to know for the exam, but presented in an easy-to-read fashion. The last three months, I would do the 10,000 MCQ, do the Huda physics, do Face The Core session, UCSF videos and study my flashcards.
  • Take breaks! 
  • Do something to help you focus. I started meditating and still do now. But, I presume you could also exercise, do yoga, etc.  
Did you know? I don't accept money or free gifts for my blog posts.  Like you, everything I reviewed in the blog, I paid for myself. This helps to ensure objective, independent review of the material presented here.
