Overview

Pharmacy Technician Certification Review and Practice Exam is a self-study guide that is designed as a companion book to the Manual for Pharmacy Technicians, 2nd Edition. The objective of this book is to assist technicians who are preparing to take the Pharmacy Technician Certification Examination offered through the Pharmacy Technician certification Board (PTCB) or other pharmacy technician examinations. The first three sections are designed to cover the knowledge and skill areas described by the PTCB. Additional sections provide helpful study and test-taking strategies, a review of pharmacy math, information on commonly prescribed medications, and a practice exam. The book is the only one tool to be used in preparation for the certification exam and is not intended to be used as the sole preparation guide for the certification exam. Some activities are mastered primarily through the work experience of the individual and can not be adequately explained through didactic material. The book should be used in conjunction with the Manual for Pharmacy Technicians, 2nd Edition, other study aids recommended in the PTCB candidate handbook, and job experience.

The book contains no figures.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Vincent E. Pearson, PharmD, BCPS (Johns Hopkins Hospital)
Description: This textbook is produced by the American Society of Health System Pharmacists (ASHP) for Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB) national certification exam review.
Purpose: The purpose is to prepare the reader to take the PTCB exam. This is a very worthy goal, since technicians who are solid in technical expertise will soon be needed to assume greater control of the pharmacy.
Audience: It is written primarily for technicians who are preparing for the exam, but would also be useful for experienced technicians desiring a refresher and nurses who prepare medications.
Features: As technicians are assuming more of the distributive functions of pharmacies, the need for proficiency in the functions of preparing and distributing medications is going to increase. This book prepares the reader for the exam by reviewing standard material in dosage and dilution calculations, differences in dosage forms, laws regarding dispensing and storing controlled substances, basic therapeutic classes of medications, and offering tips on taking a board certification exam. A practice exam in the back of the book gives the reader a sample of the questions that they may expect on the exam. The book follows the standard format of most board review texts, thus it offers nothing innovative in the delivery of information. However, it does offer more information than other books of the genre that only teach calculations. The text gives the reader the skills needed to fully support the pharmacist in preparing and distributing medications. This book can easily serve as a standard text in technician training courses, with supplementary material specific to the institution added. Nurses who need to prepare medications when a pharmacist is not available will benefit from the dilution calculations in the text.
Assessment: As a former technician training program director, I wholly endorse this text as a tool for developing capable pharmacy technicians.
