    I'm hoping I will be good between reading and doing all the q's from Mathew, Ptemasters, and e-echocardiography.com. Do any of you guys who have taken the exam in the last couple years think Edelman or another dedicated physics book is absolutely necessary?

    I honestly can't even imagine your plan not being enough.

    Agreed, PTE Masters by itself is sufficient for the exam for probably 99% of the test takers

    Matthew and PTE Masters should be good enough to pass. Do E-echocardiography for daily refreshers and inexpensive CME. Everything else is gravy. You'll certainly understand and appreciate ultrasound by reading some physics text, and it'll likely make you a better echocardiographer, but it won't be necessary to pass the test.

    Edelman is painful to read through. The rest of the resources you mentioned are excellent however.
