My Wife is using this book to get certified but from what she tells me it has a lot of info. Maybe a little bit too much info. The only thing it really is lacking is that there are no answers to the practice questions in the back of each chapter. Although I was able to find the answer to all the odd questions online.

I am taking my PTCE tomorrow, but I'm finding myself quite overwhelmed. I really loved how the book was divided up like the exam... into 3 sections with each section spending an appropriate amount of time on each section. I chose this book because it seemed to not include any extra information, but at times I felt like it did. I wish the math section had been more clearly expressed. Also, I wish there had been a blanket "formula chart." -though I haven't seen a single book with that at all. I wish there had been more examples of each math problem. Also, taking their practice exams it would mark my answer incorrectly even though I selected the correct answer. And I found typos throughout. The explanations while more thorough than other books, did not always clearly explain the solution I felt. For someone who is okay at math (not great by any means) I was disappointed. I can usually figure things out if they are broken down a little more. The math is a huge portion of the exam, and I felt like although it's fairly simple math they could have tried harder to break it down. Had I realized this earlier, I definitely would have chosen another book. I would recommend that along with this book, you get a specific pharmacy technician math book. I wish I had... I feel like I would feel more confident if I had. The book I'm recommending I would still also recommend a separate pharmacy math book, but even if not, this has some easy to understand examples. I wish I had purchased that book.

This book has numerous comprehensive tests through out it. Also, very helpful when studying the math portion of the PTCB exam (dimensional analysis/conversions). It's not very cohesive, and doesn't have a good organizational pattern. That can be a good thing though, as the questions on the exam are not in any particular order.
