    Midwife Sonography ExamSim Program
    The Midwife Sonography (MW) ExamSim is a joint product by the American College of Nurse-Midwives (ACNM) and Pegasus Lectures, developed to help midwife practitioners determine their level of expertise in ultrasound and to prepare candidates for the ARDMS Midwife Sonography (MW) certificate exam. 

    In addition to providing simulation of the ARDMS Midwife Sonography examination, the program uses a patented algorithm to help the user determine their level of preparedness to sit for the exam. The patented algorithm mathematically assesses not only performance based on question types, subject topics, and subject subtopics, but it also analyzes keystrokes, testing behaviors, and time parameters to identify precise areas of strengths and weaknesses. The score report can then be used to shorten study time by precisely indicating topics that require further study as well as identifying poor test-taking habits. In review mode, the detailed explanations are included to make certain that the concept being tested is well understood. By using this invaluable ExamSim tool to prepare for your Midwife Sonography Exam, you will have studied the key concepts, focused on your areas of weakness, and used your valuable study time efficiently and effectively.

    OB/GYN Ultrasound: A Sonographer’s Comprehensive Guide
    This soft cover, coil-bound text is a comprehensive guide that covers normal and abnormal anatomy, physiology, pathology, differential diagnosis, lab values, and technical factors in the field of Obstetrics and Gynecology. Extensive graphics and images make this a perfect guide for midwives, sonographers, and other OB/GYN healthcare professionals. Conceptual questions complement each of the twenty-two chapters.
