Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: 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.
