    Take one reviewer!

    I did a self review for about two months using this review book and passed the exam right the first time. I passed it to a friend of mine and he too passed the exam the first time. Very highly recommended!!!!!!

    A last resort

    If you are going to study for the PTCB, only purchase this as a last resort. Go to the PTCB website and use their recommendations for study guides. This publication is out of date, incomplete and filled with errors. The companion CD of flash cards and practice exams is the only redeeming value here and it is also quite flawed. Caveat Emptor!

    Lots of information, but some discrepancies

    While this title does include a lot of helpful information, there are a few errors within the text and electronic flash cards. So, if you disagree with something within the text, double check with another source. The main reason I recommend this text would be the practice exams on the CD-ROM you can take the practice exams in tutorial mode so that you can learn the logic behind the correct answers.

    THE BEST BAR NONE!

    If you are going to take the PTCB exam, this book will prove extremely useful in your study. I just took the exam today, and feel confident because of this review guide. It gives you what you need to know, and the practice exams are structured in a VERY similar fashion to the real exam. This is the best review guide bar none. Kudos to those who created this guide.

    THE ONLY BOOK U NEED FOR THE PTCB EXAM!!!

    I started out being in a Pharmacy Technician program, (which is usually like a year including fall, summer, and spring), I felt like I was wasting classes b/c these classes wouldn't count towards my major. So I got this book after reading the reviews, and I PASSED on the FIRST TRY!!! It gives you everything u need to know! Many people there took the exam more than once, get this book and take like 2 or 3 months prior to prepare, and u'll be set!

    Mosby's Review for the PTCB Certification Examination

    This review book outshines the competition. After studying from it, I passed the exam so easily. The majority of the questions were similar to what I found on the test.

    It was helpful as a review.

    I passed test on the first attempt but I used this along with another one. I thought that the CD was helpful. Some of the answers were wrong and it did have some errors. It did have a lot of problems to work out, but it did not have much explaination of how to solve the calculations. I had to use another book for that. This book was helpful as a review. I had worked on a pharmacy for a little over a year so most of everything I knew was from working in a pharmacy. The book helped to touch on different topics that I don't do everyday.

    passed exam on 1st try!!!

    This is the only text i studied, and i was able to pass the exam on the 1st try. I loved the cd-rom that comes with the book. The practice exams were excellent. There were a couple of mistakes in the answer key, but it wasn't anything major. i recommend this book to anyone.

    Disappointed with the answer sheet

    This book gives a good explanation on how to solve problems. If you are planning to buy this book, be aware that there are lots of questions that were answered incorrectly in the answer sheet, specially questions which involves numbers. I find this sometimes in other test practice books but not this much. It seems that not so much attention was given on this part of the book.
