5.0 out of 5 stars Worry not October 28, 2013
By PR
Format:Paperback
A lot of people have a lot of worries before the test. There are a lot of things that bothers them. They have a lot of questions in their minds. Preparation is the answer to all their worries. If you are prepared enough for the test, there's nothing you need to be worried about. Knowing everything about the test, having test strategies and secrets to success, can definitely remove all your worries away. Those are all here in this book.

This book seems to give you everything that you need for you to be prepared and not to be worried. The topics are divided into four areas, basic biomedical sciences, pharmaceutical sciences, social/behavioral/administrative pharmacy sciences, and clinical sciences. These are briefly explained to be easily understood. So, this book will never bore you while you're reading it. The order of the topic in each area like in basic biomedical sciences is well organized. It starts with anatomy and physiology, followed by pathophysiology, microbiology, immunology, biochemistry/biotechnology, molecular biology/genetics and biostatistics. You can see that its presentation is in correct order for you should really know first the anatomy and physiology before knowing the pathophysiology. You will not be able to understand the pathophysiology part if you don't know the anatomy and physiology in the first place. These topics and explanations of the topics entail how important they are towards your success.

There's really nothing you need to be worried about because it seems to cover everything in the test. Aside from that, it helps you prepare in all the aspects which are needed in taking the test. It prepares you all the way, from the beginning of the test until the end. It also has the practice test for you to apply what you had learned.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helped me pass FPGEE January 15, 2011
By Jax
Format:Paperback
I bought this book at the start of my study for the FPGEE. I found it covered a lot of points brought up in the exam. I recommend you also buy Comprehensive Pharmacy Review to read also as it doesn't go into too much detail. It was very valuable the week before the exam to revise what I had learned. Very pleased with it.

1.0 out of 5 stars this book is embarassingly bad April 21, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book as it seemed to be one of the few books specifically for the FPGEE. It is not worth the money.
It is extremely short and seems to be completely random. For instance, the chapter "Pharmacology" starts with a quick overview of FDA Pregnancy Risk Categories, followed by 3 sentences on the basal metabolic rate and then a paragraph describing Topoisomerase Inhibitors, and so on throughout the book. While a concise book can be quite valuable, in this book even the little information that is there is often unimportant, unintelligible or completely false. For example, a whole paragraph is devoted to "Income and expense accounts" ("Expense accounts- is money that is used to buy things. In a pharmacy this relate to buying pharmaceuticals, paying employees etc." The missing third-person-s is quoted correctly!) At one point, the book explains the acronym USP as standing for "united standard procedure", although USP stands for United States Pharmacopeia, which is THE official source of regulations for pharmaceuticals and one of the most important sources studied by pharmacists in the course of their training. Getting something that basic wrong makes me wonder what other mistakes there are in this book.

I read through the entire book two days before the test.
The first 18 pages give general tips and tricks for taking a multiple choice exam. While these were interesting to read, they are not worth buying the book for.
In the scientific part, I found at least one factual mistake in every chapter, often more (for example, loop diuretics cause hyperuricemia, NOT hypouricemia as stated; BUN is NOT a liver enzyme as stated, it stands for Blood Urea Nitrogen and is a blood test).
