Secrets of the ARDMS Certification Exams Study Guides

Secrets of the ARDMS Certification Exams Study Guide

How to Pass the Abdomen, Adult Echocardiography, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Sonography Principles & Instrumentation, and Vascular Technology Examinations, using our easy step-by-step ARDMS Test study guide, without weeks and months of endless studying...

Dear Friend,

On a beautiful late spring afternoon, this past year, a young woman received the devastating news. She had just gotten back her result on the ARDMS test. It was not what she had hoped for. In fact, it was not even close to the expectations she had considering her past experience and educational background.

She had failed.

Then she remembered her friends and felt even worse. She did not look forward to having to tell them the embarrassing news, especially after she had boasted that it was no big deal. She had been procrastinating about taking the exam because she hated standardized tests, and this only confirmed her hatred.

"What will I do now?" she thought with dismay, slowly realizing the harsh reality of her predicament and its upsetting implications on her future.

How to Solve the Problem

Unfortunately, this hypothetical situation occurs all the time. Someone thought they were going to breeze through the examination, told all their friends, made plans for their future, and then got an embarrassing reality check from the ARDMS test.

The Abdomen, Adult Echocardiography, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Sonography Principles & Instrumentation, and Vascular Technology Examinations are quite simply an objective assessment of a test taker's requisite foundation of knowledge and skills.

ARDMS test scores are used by the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS) as a uniform standard of qualification. While it may not be fair, all of a person's plans for the future may be dependent upon needing a certain ARDMS test score.

That is the whole purpose of the Secrets of the ARDMS Certification Exams study guides: to give test takers the keys to understand how to succeed on their ARDMS test.

Our ARDMS Test Study Guide Is Unlike Any Other

If you'd like to get the ARDMS test score you deserve, to quit worrying about whether your score on the ARDMS test is good enough, and to beat the test taking game so you can become a Registered Diagnostic Medical Sonographer (RDMS), then this might be the most important message you read this year.

Our comprehensive American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS) Exam study guides are written by our test experts, who painstakingly researched the topics and the concepts that you need to know to do your best on the ARDMS test. Our original research into the Abdomen, Adult Echocardiography, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Sonography Principles & Instrumentation, and Vascular Technology Examinations, offered by the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS), reveals the specific content areas and the essential skills that are critical for you to know on the ARDMS test. We've taken the information and developed study guides that are guaranteed to help you be successful on the ARDMS test.

Now, we know you may be skeptical, so let us give you three good reasons we can back up what we claim:

The Three Reasons To Believe What We Say

The First Reason:

Our company's name is Mometrix Test Preparation, and we have a team of standardized test researchers who have worked on developing our study guide for the ARDMS test. The standards for who gets to work on the team are very strict. We demand the best for our customers, and only those who met our exacting standards made the cut. The dedicated research staff have years of combined experience in mastering the content and skills necessary to succeed on the toughest exams.

The Second Reason:

Some academic studies have revealed that test takers do not really benefit from the traditional test preparation process. But we knew there had to be a solution. If test takers were not doing well on the ARDMS test despite high intelligence, there had to be a set of secret keys to the test that would open the door of success for these test takers.

We believe we have succeeded in finding the secret keys of the exam. What we found was surprising, and in some cases ridiculously simple once explained to the average test taker.

We put the findings together in a thorough, concise study guide that we believe allows any test taker, at any skill level, to improve his or her results dramatically with a minimum of effort.

The Third Reason:

We created the product in part because we were frustrated by the options available to test takers who really wanted to do well on the ARDMS test.

A common approach is to TEACH the material, instead of TEACHING THE TEST. That's not necessarily good enough for the ARDMS test. You have to know how to apply the knowledge. Most test takers already have a general knowledge of the material that will be covered on the exam.

One reason some test takers do well on the day of the test is that they have made the critical connection between the material they learned and how to use the material to succeed on the ARDMS test.

Our guide addresses the difference between merely knowing the material and knowing how to use the material to perform on test day.

You're going to save time, money, and aggravation. You'll learn to avoid the mistakes and the bad strategies that you've been vulnerable to. Just for starters, here are some ways our product can help your score on the ARDMS test...

The Exclusive Test Taking Techniques

  • Keys to questions that give away the wrong (or right) answers. You get credit for some of the questions just by paying attention to how the question is asked.
  • Get quick, customized help for the questions you have about how to use our materials. Just send us a quick email and we'll get back to you promptly with the answer.
  • Details the EXACT STUDY PLAN for the ARDMS test that we believe gives the most results in the least time. No matter if you're studying for a week or a month, you won't waste the precious study time you have on useless activities.
  • Our researchers are more than just academic theoreticians who understand the technical nature of standardized tests, but are also experts on test taking itself. They reveal the exact skills and the information you'll need to perform under pressure during the test.
  • Learn why, when, and how to guess to your advantage. Many test takers use exactly the wrong strategy, but you can avoid the pitfalls with the help of our standardized test experts.
  • Includes instructions detailing the best way for you to get started with your preparation efforts so you can begin the path of improving your scores immediately.
  • The most efficient and accurate method for picking the right answer. You won't be scratching your head trying to read the mind of the test question writer, but will instead know exactly what to look for to pick the best answer.
  • Courteous, unlimited customer service is 100% free. If you need the product sent to a different address, lose the product, or have any other difficulty, the help you need is just a short email away, and our representatives are active 7 days a week helping customers.
  • The research of our team of test experts is 100% independent and original.
  • Our exclusive calibration strategy to help you never go too fast OR too slow when answering even the toughest questions.
  • The 5-step process we've developed, what we call the phased approach, concerning the use of the various study aids and practice tests.
  • How to structure your preparation to avoid the problem of procrastination that can kill your chances of success.
  • The most important things you should take care of within 24 hours of taking the test. Make sure you've taken care of the little things in addition to studying hard.
  • How to predict the right answer before you see the answer choices, and how to prevent the wrong answers from polluting your mind and tempting you into a trap designed by the test writers.
  • Why answers that sound correct are often the very ones that are wrong and how to tell the difference between the right answer and the many clever-sounding traps set for you by the test writers.
  • Our benchmark method for deciding which of the answer choices you should pick.
  • How some of the random bits of information in a question often give away the right answer choice.
  • How to milk the question for clues to the right answer even if you aren't sure what the question is asking about.
  • How to avoid panicking when you don't know the answer to a question. We offer a systematic method that will serve as the lifeline you need to minimize the time wasted on the test questions that leave you stumped.
  • What to do about the tough questions that you have no clue how to answer. Don't just give up, use the advice we offer to make sure you give yourself the best chance of getting the right answer.
  • How to use our brainstorming method to get inside the question and reveal the hard-to-find clues and some of the subtle things you didn't realize you knew.
  • Do you know what a hedge phrase is? Learn why looking for the key weasel words in the question can help identify the correct answer.
  • The secret to using the contextual clues in the questions and the answer choices to make important distinctions between the right and the wrong answer choices.
  • How to avoid careless mistakes by using the quick double check system. It will more than pay for itself relative to the time it will take you.
  • Why extreme statements in the answer choices are dead giveaways for wrong answers. Find out how to detect the subtle differences between reasonable answers and the answers that are almost always wrong.
  • Learn how to group your answer choices into families that often narrows down the pool of correct answers. This is a quick way to immediately eliminate one or two of the answer choices and increase your odds of getting the question right.

Now, you're probably wondering how and why we can do all the things we claim.

Five StarsI purchased the study guide, and I just wanted to let you know that I passed my test. I just want to thank you again, and hope you have continued success in your ventures.
Chris G.
Five StarsMy name is Chris. I used the study guide for five days. The study guide made the test so easy to understand. Like you said this program is worth 100's of dollars. To me 1,000's!! THANKS!
Five StarsI just had to thank you guys for the test prep! I bought the guide as a last minute prep, I mean maybe 5 hours before the test. Like I said, I had ZERO preparation! I was nervous about the test let alone receiving the score I needed. I read the guide through only once before test time and needless to say, the only way I passed was thanks to your refresher!!
Denise W.
Five StarsJust dropping you a note to let you know that I am completely satisfied with the product. I had already taken the test once and landed in the 75 percentile of those taking it with me. I took the test a second time and used some of your tips and raised my score to the 97 percentile. Thanks for my much improved score.
Zac L.
Five StarsI heard about your website from a friend. I am enrolled in a review course, and in hindsight, I wish I wouldn't have taken my review course and instead spent a fraction of the money on your program. Thank you!

Warning: Always Look for These 6 Criteria

There is a lot of confusion surrounding studying for the ARDMS test, and standardized tests in general. In our opinion, these are the 6 criteria you should always look for in a study guide for the ARDMS test:

One: The guide must be written by writers who have painstakingly researched the topics and concepts needed to succeed on the ARDMS test. The blind cannot hope to lead the blind.

Two: The guide must be written in easy-to-use everyday language so all test takers can access the information.

Three: The guide must be to-the-point, with no fluff to distract the test taker from the truly important information.

Four: The guide must address the test first, the material second. If the material was the only thing that was important, then every test taker that understood the material should get a perfect score. That doesn't happen because there's a difference between simply knowing what's on the test and the way you perform on the test. You want a study guide to close that gap.

Five: The guide must motivate the test taker to actually study for the exam. If the guide is hard to read, the time spent studying will be slow and painful, and the results will be meager.

Six: The guide must be guaranteed. If you don't pass with flying colors, you get your money back, no questions asked.

You get at least 10 times your money's worth!

When you consider what's at stake with the exam, we believe the value of our study guide gives you at least ten times your money's worth.

In summary, here's what you get:
