Overview

The first review book based on the national Pharmacy Technician Certification Examination's NEW (as of August 1999) content outline. The entire book is written and presented in outline format to help candidates access and review essential information quickly and efficiently. Organized by the same three function areas tested on the examination, this study guide features user-friendly aids including key terms and concepts, chapter summaries, questions for discussion, and sample questions. The section on Pharmaceutical Calculations has been expanded considerably for the second edition, and a new chapter entitled "Practice Questions" offers 67 questions to help readers assess their understanding of the material covered in the rest of the book.

The book contains no figures.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Cynthia Ann Bell, CPht (Lexi-Comp, Inc.)
Description: This is a comprehensive tool that any pharmacy technician, pharmacy intern, pharmacist, or healthcare professional can follow. I found the pharmaceutical calculations easy to follow.
Purpose: This book is designed to serve as a resource for pharmacy technicians as they prepare for the National Pharmacy Certification Examination. The three broad function areas most important for everyday pharmacy practice are address. It is also a useful resource for technician educators, employers, and state pharmacy organizations as they develop exam review courses. These worthy objectives have been met.
Audience: The audience this book should capture is pharmacy technicians, educators, employers, and state pharmacy organizations.
Features: This is an overall guide about how the certification test is given. The editors give good examples on the pharmaceutical calculations in a basis approach and the needed knowledge for the everyday pharmacy practice setting. The shortcomings I found were in pharmacy law; more information should be provided, as this is an extremely important feature on the Certification Exam.
Assessment: I would recommend this book as an additional study guide. It is a handy resource for touching up on key points to remember. I think a little more should be focused on compounding, and the laws of pharmacy.

    Not worth your money

    This book is totally irrevalent to the Pharmacy Technician National Exam. I have no previous experience in the retail pharmacy before I went into the exam. So I bought this book to study. Thanks to the information in this book. I did not pass the exam.

    horrible

    this book is absolutely horrible. My work gave me this book to study for the National Exam. I am a technician in training with no experience whats so ever so of course im not going to learn from a book that has almost nothing to do with the exam is what all of the technicians at my store have told me. So if you work for CVS orsome other pharmacy and they hand you this book, do not even waste your time with it.

    mistaken

    This book has been used at many stores and technicians from my store have used this book and only this book and have passed the exam on the first try. It does require learning and studying the book though.
