Rochell O. Harmon, MS(Froedtert Hospital)

This is the fifth edition of a wonderful study guide for radiologic technology students preparing for registry examination. The situation judgment test items are a positive addition.

In addition to preparing students for their exam, this book also serves as a career planner.

The author has brought a wealth of knowledge to this book for radiologic technology students. He has been in the field of radiology for over 30 years.

The book covers in outline format the five subjects of the radiography exam administered by the ARRT. Helpful features include the basic terminology at the beginning of each section, key review points, end notes, and the variety of questions. The digital imaging unit is an excellent addition.

This review book includes the necessary information for successful results on the registry examination and in job interviews. This edition includes situation judgment test items, a wealth of information on digital imaging, a nice question format, and a CD that justify replacing previous editions.
