Okay here's another question just for fun and giggles
Who's book? Gen Sonographers use different texts than us and sometimes I don't understand the vascular concepts they come up with when reviewing studies. I have taken tests over the internet-Ie: GE and thought
Really Really-- you are asking this and give me these answers???
And what does this have to do with the lecture I heard!
This is not the SDMS,SVU this is ARDMS-Like someone said, you take 
the test and then go into the real world. I think the those seasoned 
techs in the conversations here have expressed real issues with trust in 
the ARDMS concerns for us.
They ask, we respond and then are told, suck it up, this is the way it is.
(okay, they didn't say suck it up, but they did say it is a "done deal")
I think people are just getting sick of having their intelligence insulted
by questionaires and surveys that have no meaning because the "powers that be" really don't care what we want.
There seems to be an influx of Snobongraphy.
Boy --see what happens with surgery and drugs!!

Points well taken. Speaking for myself, i don't feel it's insecurity,  
it's about "why". Has a concrete explanation been given to "why" this  
needs to be implemented (other than what's on ARDMS website which I  
feel is not a completely valid and functional reason. Is it really  
going to "advance" our profession?  Also, "time".  As has been stated  
on this thread, what does a 50 question, open book, in my own home  
test REALLY prove?  It's a hurdle that we have to do "why".. I don't  
really care if it's free and only 50 questions.. It takes up an hour  
of my time I could be spending with my kids... Etc.  So, give me  
something that REALLY makes a professionL difference an I'll entertain  
it.. As I said before, my kids are real interested In what daddy  
does.. I'll probably let them tAke the tests since they're open book..  
Then we can at least have family time =]
