Tackling the Multiple-Choice Test
The Nuclear Medicine Technology exam is administered by two institutions: The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) and Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board (NMTCB). Once you choose either ARRT or NMTCB, the first step you should take is to visit their respective Web sites, and familiarize yourself with the test information provided that is specific to each. Think about a candy store. You can expect to buy sweets there, but the assortment, presentation, and the price will be different for each vendor. Make the effort to know the intimate details of ARRT’s or NMTCB’s exams. On the more “healthy” note, regardless of which one you choose to take your test with you will be taking a standard multiple-choice test administered on a computer. Multiple choice is the most common test format for standardized test, and it helps to understand the basic setup of this type of a test before tackling it.
