Review

"I feel the way it was written, the style, and the question reviews at the end of the chapter would help the students better prepare for taking their certification exam." "I will definitely recommend this book to my students for additional study material and to my fellow instructors here and at our other schools in the hope that we will soon acquire this textbook.""Having reviewed the table of contents and a number of chapters, I am very impressed with the completeness of this text. I have a habit of looking for things that are missing or should be changed and wasn't able to find anything in this review. All material appeared to be up-to-date and covered in a depth compatible with reviewing for the certification review."George W. Strothmann, CPhT, Sanford Brown Institute, Fort Lauderdale FL

"I would say about 95% of the hot topics are covered.., it is an excellent source for a review. It provides just the right amount of detail for a short term review of each section or topic."Ashanti C. La Roche', CPhT, A.S., Delgado Community College Pharmacy Technician Program New Orleans, Louisiana --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Great Study Material Dec 7 2011
By Monica - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Used only this book to study for the PTCE and passed easily. I only studied for about 2 weeks (about 3-4 hours a day, 4-5 days per week) and was able to finish the test, review my answers, and leave the test with 20 minutes to spare. The end of chapter questions and study questions on the CD helped tremendously.

Great Purchase Sept. 1 2011
By kam15 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my daughter (who is a freshman in a pre-pharmacy program) to use as a review for the cert exam. She thought it thoroughly covered what was on the exam. The CD was a great testing tool and offered new questions each time. She passed with flying colors and only had a couple of weeks to study!

PASSED using this book June 12 2012
By aminnaa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I took the PTCB last weekend. Although I passed the test the first time,I think the book missing material. It does not cover anatomy and physiology, common diseases, safety and compounding. It does a REALLY good job of explain other concepts such as pharmacy laws, MATH ESPECIALLY , dosage forms etc.If you get this book I would recommend using this book along with Comprehensive Exam Review for the Pharmacy Technician (Edition 2) by Jahangir Moini..it covers concepts that arent in this book. Its always good to get more than one review book for studying PTCB in general because not all books are created equal.

Not impressed Feb. 6 2012
By hnb11 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book thinking since it was the latest one I could find, there would be updated laws and a complete review of them. I didn't think the book fully prepared me for the contents of the test. There is a good chunk which covers the math and the pharmacology but there is a lot of information that the author should/needed to add. I passed the PTCE so it's not a total loss but if I started over, I probably wouldn't have purchased this book.

This exam review helped me pass the PTCB exam.
It's concise, & I'd even suggest using it as a textbook.
