NEW! ON-LINE PRACTICE EXAMINATIONS FOR NUCLEAR MEDICINE STUDENTS PREPARING FOR THEIR BOARD CERTIFICATION EXAMINATION
Consultants in Nuclear Medicine has prepared a collection of six on-line tests containing almost 450 multiple choice questions. These tests have been designed to significantly enhance your level of knowledge of NM Basic Science and to prepare you for the NMTCB or ARRT(N) Board Certification Examination. Some of these learning tools are free, and others are very reasonably priced. Overall, they represent a wealth of information.
- Free use of our website, www.nucmedtutorials.com. This website offers 46 on-line tutorials covering most aspects of the Basic Science of Nuclear Medicine. The tutorials may be reviewed on-line or may be downloaded and printed; each self-grading test may be taken on-line up to three times per student. The tutorials are available 24/7/365.
- There are four on-line tests covering Nuclear Medicine Basic Science, with special emphasis on NRC regs & Hot Lab QC. Each test contains 100 questions in multiple choice format and each self-grading test may be taken on-line up to three times per student. The tests are available 24/7/365. There is minimal overlap on questions on the 4 tests.
- There are 2 on-line tests covering Mathematical Problem Solving. This challenging test covers Attenuation of Radiation, Radioactive Decay, Inverse Square Law, and other pertinent math-related topics. Each test contains 35 questions in multiple choice format and the self-grading test may be taken on-line up to three times per student. The test is available 24/7/365.
The price per student is only $75.00. Everything listed above is included. We are proud to bring these educational opportunities to your attention. CNM is very confident of the quality and comprehensiveness of our courses and hope that you will be able to participate.
