I worked in a pharmacy as a clerk for 3 years before taking the PTCE. I bought this book to help me learn the laws and hospital information that I hadn't learned through retail pharmacy. I passed the exam on the first try with a decent score. This is a must have for those who aren't going to take a class. Why waste hundreds, even thousands of dollars taking a 6 month to 1 year pharmacy tech program when you can just study this book in a couple of weeks then take the exam and pass? This book has everything you need to know to succeed as a technician.

I did not take a class, work in a pharmacy but only read this book and did some practice tests online and this helped me pass the exam the first time. Good book for study guide and starting point.

Aiming for a great score on the PTCE exam this is a must to have. As every practice question in other books brush over topics just to get to another one, this book can explain them better. The key is focussing on the reading and understanding part. Because reading something without retaining it is not knowledge.

I searched for a series of books that would cover the various areas of pharmaceuticals necessary to become a pharmacy technician without taking online courses, and this series was the best one I found.
