    This book helped me so much!

    I purchased this book from B&N in order to prepare me for the PTCB exam. Without this informative book, I honestly would not have passed the exam! I highly recommend it to anyone that is going to take the PTCB exam. I was given other pharmacy technician books from the school I attended. However, they were no where as informative and as detailed as this book.

    This book was ok

    This book was ok, but way too many errors. What really helped me was practicing the questions in a simulator software. I recommend http://www.atipharmtech.com if you need more help, especially a quick brush up on math. Anyway I passed easily with this program.
