I recently wrote the Canadian version of the pharmacy licencing exam - the PEBC's. I did find this book very helpful for studying because each section was laid out well and very clearly explains the important features of each disease and drug therapy. Unfortunately, it did not cover all the important topics. For example, cholesterol and lipids, GERD, and alcoholic liver disease weren't covered. But the topics that are covered are done very well and it makes a great addition to therapeutics notes.
A caution for Canadians - I would recommend this book but beware of the fact that not all of the listed drugs are available here (nor are all our drugs listed in it) and that the questions in the samples and practice exams are not very representative. They are a great studying tool to see how much information you got from each section, just don't expect your exam to resemble them much.

To be honest, I really didn't use this book to study from.....it's too comprehensive for the pharmacy boards...remember the board exam is just a minimum competencey exam...i actually bought it for the practice exams which are useful cause they not only give you the correct answer in the back but tell u why it is correct and why the other choices are not!! Don't get discouraged if you barely even get half of them right....they are again a little too comprehensive but they do a good job to steer u in the direction of topics that u probably overlooked. I suggest to take the 2 exams in the end as review.......u will appreciate the text book as a reference once u become a pharmamcist and want to brush up on a topic!! If your're wondering what text I used to study from it was the Kaplan text....it is geared for the boards and i guarantee u if u can get your hands on it (I had a friend who took the course and let me borrow the book) you'll be good to go!!!!

As Pharmacist, studying to do Pharmacy Exams in North America,having practised as Pharmacist for 20years plus, I find this book difficult to read and digest. Lots of information,which could have been better presented for instance as, flow charts etc..

This was an excellent review guide for both the PEBC's and FPGEE. Each chapter is well organized and easy to understand. Every chapter is followed by a brief multiple choice quiz and the answers are well explained. It covers everything from basic pharmacokinetics, pharmaceutical sciences, med chem, most disease states, nutritional therapy, cancer, calculations, references etc. Note that the book is american, so not all Canadian drugs are included plus it focuses in on american law, regulations etc. It has a number of excellent appendices, index, and table of contents. The accompanying Practice Exam book is most suitable for the NAPLEX as it contains case based questions from the patient's MAR or RX profile with many multiple choice questions. I definately recommend this as a general pharmacy review guide and reference!
