Passing your ARDMS or CCI Ultrasound Registry is easier than you think....
Don't stress over it... study. Mastering ultrasound physics or any other ultrasound specialty can be so overwhelming and often it can you make you want to give up. Don't give up! You got this! Keep on studying and use these simple tips to study and PASS your ultrasound registry!
Get Organized.- Make a plan and a schedule for your study time. Know what you need to study by checking out the ARDMS website and reviewing the outlines and materials and then make it a priority. Find the best time and schedule that works for and stick to it.
Don't multitask - Studies have shown that multitasking is physically impossible. Multitasking keeps you from focusing on what you need to master. Stay focused on one thing at a time.
Divide it up - Studying usually isn't fun and forcing your way through a long study marathon will only make it worse. Divide your work into manageable chunks. Take one section and master that! Reward yourself when you finish each chunk to keep it fun and less stressful!.
Sleep - Sleep is so important! Getting those eight hours of zzz's every night will keep your focus sharp and improve your working memory. Don't skip your sleep - get your rest!
Take notes - Taking notes will not only keep you more engaged during class or any review courses, but will also help you narrow down what you need to study when exam time rolls around. Also - take notes in pencil.... the tactile engagement of the pencil will help you remember the content when you need it!
Study - Obvious, right? There's a right and a wrong way to study... get it right! Review the material several days ahead of time. Look over it in small chunks, and in different ways (for example, write flashcards one day and take practice tests the next). Engage as many senses in studying as you can... read, write and speak the content. This will help you remember the content on the big day! And.... Don't cram. Give yourself time!
