Ultrasound Exam Prep Tips and Checklist 2560 1696 My Ultrasound Tutor

Do you have an ultrasound physics exam coming up? Maybe a final or even a specialties registry exam lurking around the corner? Whether you are a student or a working sonographer, preparing for a big exam can feel a bit overwhelming. Let’s see what can help reduce test anxiety and help you reach this next ultrasound career goal with some ultrasound exam prep tips.

Here are some practical suggestions and a checklist to help you prepare and walk into your test feeling confident.

Ultrasound Exam Prep Tips

To start, make sure it’s clear what you will be tested on. This may be very clear for a student if your teacher assigns specific material for an exam. However, if you are a tech working on passing the ADRMS SPI exam or a specialty exam you can find an outline of subjects covered on your test online.

For example, if you are taking the SPI exam for ultrasound physics, ARDMS has an outline of topics for that exam. This is an excellent tool to have so you know what to study. Another helpful tool is our study materials that come with each of MyUltrasoundTutor’s online courses. You don’t have to guess what will be on the exam – it’s all there for you! Study guides and materials are also available for purchase if you do not want the entire review course.

Ultrasound Exam Checklist

Now that you know what to study, let’s discuss how. Keep this checklist handy for your study sessions to get the most out of your time.

  • Know the vocabulary for the chapter or subject you are reviewing.
  • Review the equations you need to know for that subject.
  • Learn how the values in each equation are related. (This is a key for ultrasound testing)
  • Review the anatomy needed for the subject.
  • Consider the ultrasound machine settings – Know what each setting does and how it affects the image.
  • Ask yourself: Can you explain the material to someone else? If so, you are in a good position to answer test questions!

Not every point in the checklist will be needed for each section of material. Determine which ones apply and go from there. If you find you need a guiding hand or some extra assistance, don’t hesitate to contact us. We are always happy to help.

We hope these ultrasound prep tips will help make your studying sessions more productive!
