Testimonials

I would like to express my gratitude with your assistance in preparation for my CMD examination. I had attended your review in person October 26-27, 2013, used the video format online via ARC this summer (7 times at minimum through the main review videos) to prepare for my exam August 23, 2014. I have just found that I have passed on my first attempt thanks to your guidance. It would not have been possible without you. My family and I thank you.

Jason Coleman, CMD - 10/30/2015

I recommend ARC to everyone studying for the exam. I felt the course was spot on. Thank you all for what you do!

Nicole Sequin, CMD - 10/30/2015

I feel like the course was well laid out and covered everything that we needed to know. The fact that I passed the boards the first time says it all! I have told several people about the course and I hope you keep up the great work.

Angie Garner, CMD - 10/30/2015

This is an excellent review course which is well worth the dollars! Brent’s presentation of the course was very thorough! He has a way of making the material understandable and able to make you remember it! He is the perfect person for the job: intelligent, patient and just lots of fun! The two days went by fast and when I left I felt very confident that I could pass the exam!
The review book and use of the website are great tools! I would recommend this course to everyone interested in passing the exam!

Sharon Lenz, CMD - 4/05/2011

I first sat for the CMD board exam in June 2002 and sadly did not pass on my first attempt. There were two main difficulties on that exam. 1) I ran out of time. 2) Not a wide array of study material. Attending the ARC review course solved both problems and gave me confidence that I would pass on my 2nd attempt (and I did!)
I have attended other review courses and by far this is the most comprehensive and with Brent’s no nonsense approach you will be prepared to pass. The study book is invaluable. (I call it the Bible.) All the information that you need is inclusive, you just have to apply yourself. Thanks to everyone at ARC

Mark Perry, CMD - 4/05/2011

I have taken the exam prior to taking the ARC course and deciding what to study is very overwhelming. The course provided structure and guidance. Brent is very overwhelming. The course provided structure and guidance. Brent reviewed the study guide page by page and if you didn’t understand, he would stop and explain. Not once did I feel “dumb.” The website was also a wonderful tool. Brent or another classmate would try to answer any questions. The additional mock tests were helpful in the “test taking” practice. I would highly recommend this course to anyone taking the CMD exam. It provided detailed information and a huge support.

Lorraine Carroll, CMD - 4/05/2011

I work in a setting that has no on-site physics support and does not offer any services. Because of this, I felt at a big disadvantage for taking the boards. Because of Brent and the ARC course, I was able to narrow down and focus on what I had to study. In addition, to the great review I kept a lot of Brent’s little tidbits of advice in my head during studying and during the exam. Brent tells you how things really are! The website that goes along with the class is very helpful. It gives you mock exams and answers to practice. There is also a forum to chat with others that are in the same situation as you. Take the class! Brent’s pass rate says it all!

Cindy Durnin, CMD - 4/05/2011

It is obvious that this class is changing every year, keeping up with the changes on the boards and our field as well!

Pavle Matic - 4/05/2011

Excellent. Loved how specific the information given was relating to Dosimetry and to the MDCB exam!

Mark Correll - 4/05/2011

I found ARC class to be very helpful and informative. It did a good job of covering everything in an organized way. I am definitely a better dosimetrist now. Brent does a good job of getting through the material and he has a desire to help us become better dosimetrist. Thanks again for your help.

Mark Perry, CMD - 4/05/2011

I could not have passed the exam without the review course. I didn’t decide to take the test until late so I started studying late. We then got very busy and you know how the story goes. Because of the focused review course I was able to concentrate my efforts. Thanks to Brent and Brandy for providing me the tools and the guidance to succeed in my first attempt. Your pass rate compared to the national should say it all. Thanks again.

Stephen Mughmaw, CMD - 4/05/2011

I passed! There is no way I could have done it without the ARC program so thank you and all of your staff for putting together such a great study tool!
