This book is also a satisfactory representation of a U.S. college or school of pharmacy's curriculum. It can clearly be an aid to anyone preparing for the FPGEE. However, because of its comprehensive nature and the inclusion of convenient, concise appendices, it also may be valuable to those preparing for the NAPLEX, or serve as a reference tool for practicing pharmacists. The text's in-depth social, behavioral, and administrative pharmacy sciences section may prove to be exceptionally helpful to those preparing for the FPGEE as it is thorough and comprehensive coverage of what is typically the most difficult for graduates of foreign pharmacy schools to master. --Fadi M.

The best part of this book:
1. This book is designed in such a way graduates from foreign nations can understand and follow. This book is organized as follows.
First section – Basic Biomedical Sciences – 1-7 Chapters – You may expect 40 questions;
Second section – Pharmaceutical Sciences – 8 – 16 – You may expect 75 questions;
Third section – Chapters 17- 24 – Social, Behavioral and Administrative Pharmacy Sciences – You may expect 55 questions
Finally, Clinical Sciences – Chapters 25 – 34 – You may expect 80 questions.
In addition, it has the list of normal laboratory values to common drug interactions. As you all know the total no of questions is 250.
2. It is compiled with lots of easy points to be memorized and remembered. Each and every chapter has some practice questions. Study at least one chapter a day and take a test with honesty. Don’t practice speed-read or just scan this book. It may not work. Each and every line is important. I would prefer to take notes while studying and certainly it will help you while you are revising this book.
3. Spend 3-5 hours a day for at least 3 - 4 months. Try to understand and revise several times before your exam.
4. Answering multiple choice questions: While taking the exam don’t see the answer first. Read the question two times and recall the answer then search for the suitable answer from the choices. Eliminate the wrong answers and find the right choice. Furthermore, I have followed the elimination method also. In this review whatever I have followed I am sharing with everyone. Hope it helps you to study well and pass the exam.
5. Make a plan for your study – In your calendar write the things to be done from your syllabus (blue print) and stick on to the plan.
6. Don’t spend too much time in watching YouTube videos. Because by the end of the day you may not remember what chapter you have studied.
7. Write notes while you are studying and revise the chapter with your notes.
I would strongly recommend this book as your primary study book. In addition, for Pharmacology part I have studied Lippincott Illustrated Reviews: Pharmacology and for the calculation part I have studied Pharmaceutical Calculations by Howard C. Ansel. Finally I have used quizlet also for revising biochemistry part.
Don't worry... You will score well.. Let us use the rest of our life to help others.
All the best
