There is a very good reason this series is endorsed by the NPTA. Of the six or so books that I used to study for the exam, this was the most helpful by far. It reviews every topic on the exam, and is a great starting place to see what you need more work on. This is the book that got me a passing score on the exam, and I don't really think I can give it higher praise than that.

This book is a great study guide to prepare for the certification exam. The book is easy to read and it leaves out all the fluff that is in the other study books. After reading and doing the practice exams I found what my weaknesses were and was able to go back to my schoolbooks to strengthen those areas. I took the certification exam this month (March) and think I did fine; there are a lot of math questions in the exam and wish I spent more time in that area.

If I were to do this all over I would recommend buying Calculations: The pharmacy technician series.

I train pharmacy technicians, and this is the best, most concise review book I have seen. Almost everything on the test is covered here.

This is a great book for someone who is planning on taking the PTCB. It does a wonderful job of preparing you. It makes things very simple and has correct information in the book. I would recommend also purchasing the book from this author that includes the pharmacy calculations. It makes passing the test easy and takes you through step by step. A++++ Books. I firmly believe anyone can pass the PTCB just by studying these books.

I bought this book and struggled through it to review for my certication exam, and I did alright, but I noticed a few instances where either through typographical or proofreading errors the book presented incorrect answers to its sample problems. I also felt that this book's section on calculation review was written to sell the calculations manual available from the same series. If you haven't done serious calculation work for some time, this is not the review for you. I use calculutions frequently as I work, and even so, these authors managed to make me question my ability. There are probably better review books available, but I was too cheap to buy another after spending $35 on this one.

This book offered many helpful pointers to a technician who hasn't done hospital work and needs some refreshing on mathematical procedures. But if you're turning to this book for Chapter 7's Top 200 Drugs, be prepared to learn incorrect information. There were strengths that weren't listed, incorrect strengths listed, and the use of the drugs was vague to questionable. The practice tests also differ from the actual certification test. I spent hours stressing and trying to memorize facts and dates that the actual test never even touched on. Some was helpful, but some was not quite right.

This book includes everything you need to know for the PTCB exam and keeps it straight to the point. They don't bury you in a bunch of irrelevant crap like some other books I checked out first. I studied the book for a max of two hours before the exam and passed with flying colors. I'm glad I did my research before deciding to go with this book- I was quite pleased with the results!
