I've been out of school for 14 years and erroneously believed the NAPLEX was more clinical than it was 14 years ago. I just took it in July 2005 and I can NOT believe how basic the questions are!!! This book is better suited for your class exams than the NAPLEX. The few 'clinical' questions in the NAPLEX were so elementry, I can't believe I wasted all that time and money on APHA's plus Appleton & Lange pharmacy review questions book as well as Kaplan's q-bank questions. I've been specializing in oncology for the past few years and I was not familiar with any of the new drugs on the market. Of the over 2000+ 'test' questions between all 3 study aids, there were about 5 in my NAPLEX. I do a lot of calculations in my area of practice so I guess the study aids can help those who need help in pharmacy math. There were quite a few calculations in the 'clinical' part. If I had taken this test last year without 'studying', I believe I would had done just as well. If you were awake while practicing or in school...the NAPLEX is a piece of cake. There were quite a few 120+ scores.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I've been practicing as a hospital pharmacist for 13 years but because I specialize in acute care then oncology, I have not been able to keep current on the other areas I don't practice. I also work in hospitals, all with a very limited formulary so there are many new drugs I have never dispensed. This is a good basic review book. I have found errors in drug doses and omission of 1-2 commonly use medications in most drug classes but since the NAPLEX usually does not ask indepth questions, it probrably makes little/no difference in passing or failing it. Just don't use this book as a reference!!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
