Any aspiring Radiologist knows that the key to passing the Radiology Certifying Exam is to study. The American Board of Radiology Certifying Exam is an image-rich and computer administered exam that focuses on the synthesis of information, differential diagnosis, and patient management. Candidates must pass the Qualifying (Core) Exam before sitting for the Certifying Exam.

There are many different ways to study for the Radiology boards, but the most important things to remember are to start studying early, stay calm, and get plenty of sleep. Using practice tests to quiz yourself is a great way to focus your study plan and gauge your current knowledge.
