The NUF Cram Notes brilliance isn't just that it tells you exactly what you need to know to pass the NUF test, it tells you what you don't need to know, so you don't waste valuable time studying material that isn't testable.

  3. Radiation Detection & Instrumentation
  4. Surveys & Job Coverage
  5. Air Sampling
  6. ALARA & Shielding
  7. Decay Modes, Decay Rates, Half-Lives, and the Curie
