    Math for the Pharmacy Technician

    The author of this book took me under her wing to teach me the mathematical intricacies that the Pharmacy Technician must accomplish.
    After being out of school for 25 years and not being sure that I would understand the 'new math' I achieved what I thought would be impossible, a GPA of 4.0.
    This book takes the complicated mathematical formulas needed in the Pharmacy and makes them understandable; it breaks down advanced math to make it easy for anyone to understand.
    This book should be the baseline for future generations of Pharmacy Technicians to learn from.
    By the end of my classes with Mrs Egler she had explained to me that I would have to count to ten before answering any questions in her class to give the other students a chance
