Overview

The NAPLEX® (North American Pharmacist Licensure
Examination®) is the standard licensing exam that all U.S.
pharmacy students must pass to practice pharmacy. It's an
arduous exam that tests a daunting range of knowledge.
Approximately 10% of students taking the exam for the
fi rst time fail to achieve a passing score. Preparing for
the NAPLEX® by reviewing all the material from each
pharmacy school course would be overwhelming. A far
better approach would be to study only the information
most relevant to the exam, summarized in abbreviated
bullet format, and that's what The APhA Complete Review
for Pharmacy contains.
All chapters of the book were updated. A current, one volume
compilation of pharmacy knowledge, The APhA
Complete Review for Pharmacy is also a popular reference
for busy practitioners wishing to stay current.
Key Features:
• Top 200 drugs. The place to begin NAPLEX®
preparation: learning the generic and trade names for
the top 200 drugs (Appendices).
• Math. After drug names, pharmacy math is the most
important single area to review (Chapter 1).
• Drug therapy for chronic and common diseases. This is
the heart of today's NAPLEX® and the subject of more
than half this study guide's 37 chapters.
• Review questions. All chapters end with 20 or
more practice exam questions and answers, plus
explanations that reinforce key learning points.
• Test questions on CD-ROM. The enclosed CD-ROM
gives users 3 options: Learning Mode, which
allows users to customize the test-taking experience;
Certifi cation Mode, which delivers the test as it was
authored; and FlashcardMode.
• Seasoned advice on studying for and taking the
NAPLEX® from James C. Eoff III, who has coordinated
the board review course at the University of Tennessee
College of Pharmacy for more than 30 years.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Christopher Widdick, PharmD Student(Temple University School of Pharmacy)
Description: For students about to take the boards, or healthcare professionals who want to brush up, this is a comprehensive collection of data on disease states and the therapy used to treat them. It also covers topics such as pharmacokinetics, pharmacy law, and pharmaceutical calculations.
Purpose: The main purpose is to provide a condensed, all-inclusive review of pharmacy, which the book does very well. Readers do not lose the big picture in a lot of small detail.
Audience: Since the intent of the book is to reinforce just the principal information, readers without previous training may need further information to fully understand topics. The review is a publication of the American Pharmacists Association (APhA).
Features: The book's user-friendly layout segregates each topic into sections then outlines the background information before proceeding to the core drug knowledge. In an effort to reinforce readers' confidence, each section contains a summary test at the end. The answers, provided directly after the section, include reasoning for the correct conclusion and choice. As a pharmacy student, I have found it difficult to digest the information crammed into the short semesters. The topics in this book are in sequential order and include some I haven't seen in at least two semesters.
Assessment: Overall, I found this book a great way to refresh my memory of pharmacy topics covered earlier in the curriculum. Because I wasn't seeing these topics for the first time and getting slammed with test after test, I was able to retain the information, which was presented in a beautiful format. The table of contents precisely lays out the areas covered. The only shortcoming is the lack of images, although the book does contain tables of information. However, since the majority of the book is straight text, it may not be the best choice for visual learners.

    Great Study tool for the price.

    This is a great buy for the money. While it will not go into as much detail as your lecture notes, it is a great comprehensive review of the major concepts that appear on the NAPLEX. The chapters are organized and the practice tests are very helpful. Whenever taking a large exam such as the NAPLEX, much of the anxiety associated is the fear of the unknown. With these practice exams, that fear is removed. While I also used other sources to prepare for the exam, this was an excellent tool as well as a great place to start the review. A must-have for any pharmacy student preparing for the big day.
