“The Radiation Oncology Study Guide … is a new and valuable addition. It is well written, easy to understand, and organized by specific disease sites. … There are over 1,000 multiple choice questions which are both challenging and informative. The most valuable and novel aspect of the book is the detailed answers and rationales. … The Study Guide is an invaluable resource for board preparation.
