Excellent book May 1, 2011

I found this textbook to be essential for all the info I needed for radiation protection. It's not only well-written but quite complete. It also served as a wonderful reference for studying for the ARRT exam. This textbook had great questions that were a definite help for passing the ARRT exam. You can't go wrong with *Radiation Protection in Medical Radiography*. I purchase my college text books through ecampus and the purchase is very smooth. The price is very suitable and the textbook arrived earlier than the delivery date and in a very good condition for a used textbook exactly as a described. I highly recommend this vendor. Thank you very much :)
