Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Cheryl Lynn Nunn-Thompson, PharmD, MBA (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Pharmacy)
Description: This book and accompanying diskette contain 985 multiple-choice questions to assist in the review and preparation for the North American Pharmacist Licensure Examination (NAPLEX). It is currently in its 11th edition.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide pharmacy students with the opportunity to test their knowledge in all the major areas of pharmacy study and practice answering questions representative of the types and formats found on the actual NAPLEX. The NAPLEX is the required exam for licensure and entry-level pharmacy practice in the majority of states in the U.S. The authors' objectives are met.
Audience: This text is intended for senior pharmacy students who need to review major subject areas in order to prepare for the NAPLEX. In addition, it may serve as an excellent review for pharmacists from other countries who would like to prepare to take this examination. The authors are university-based or affiliated pharmacist educators who are familiar with pharmacy school curriculum and NAPLEX content.
Features: It is organized into six major chapters with multiple choice questions and explanatory answers. Chapters cover pharmaceutics, pharmacology, microbiology and public health, biochemistry and chemistry, physiology and pathology, and clinical pharmacy. The clinical pharmacy chapter is the only part of the book that uses any illustrations (in the form of patient medication profiles). Selected references, all of which are textbooks, are pertinent and current. Unfortunately, there is no index and this would have been useful to aid the student in the preparation of topics which may span several chapters. The small size is convenient for reviewing questions at any location. A unique feature is the companion diskette; it allows the user to create multiple customized practice exams, input comments related to study efforts, and provide an assessment of scholastic strengths and weaknesses. Also included is an appendix that contains a list of all drugs approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the United States for the years 1995-1996. The reader would need to look at additional study materials to review drugs that have been FDA-approved since 1997. In addition, the book may have benefited from expanded explanatory answers that incorporate additional reference sources (specific book chapters or journal citations) for the student to review.
Assessment: It performs well in facilitating the review and study efforts of students preparing to take the NAPLEX. I would recommend that medical libraries, bookstores, and individuals purchase this inexpensive review text. This current edition is preferred to older editions to ensure review of didactic material that is current and applicable to the NAPLEX.
