I just took the certification exam on Saturday and passed! This study guide goes into great detail and adheres with the blueprint provided on PTCB. I studied this book along with the Pharmacy Technician Exam study guide by LearningExpress for four weeks. I am graduating with a biology degree and have worked as a stockroom assistant for chemistry labs so I was well off on the anatomy and compounding parts. If you are proficient in algebra, the math is not too bad, a lot of it is to remember the conversion factors (ex. 1 tbsp = 15 mL) and to be able to apply it into the equation (which are mostly proportions!)
I honestly think that you can go off with just studying from this book, since I only bought the other one without knowing it was outdated from this exam. I mostly studied from this book. I only really looked at what I needed to know from the blueprint and read up on categories for those.

As a general tip from a finally stress free student to you, I would mainly focus on the math, pharmacy laws, brand-generic drug names and classification, and general rules in the retail and hospital setting.
For my exam, I had a lot of questions that asked about insurance policies
Do the practice exams!! Repetition is the best way to memorize in my opinion

One of the few books out there that is aligned with the current version of the PTCE, it's a valuable resource and I did pass the test this week when I took it. However, the book is FULL of errors. Mostly it is just the kind that proofreading and a good editor would have caught, but apparently those talents were lacking when putting this book together. If you do buy it, first thing to do is register it online and besides the practice tests and flashcards you will have access to, there is a long list of corrections which you should make to the book. I found even MORE mistakes that weren't listed there and there are errors in the online tests as well. Really annoying. Frankly, they should recall this book and release a corrected version.

I took the test using this book to study.

I passed BUT...

This book has a ton of errors. Literally one whole chapter exam, 80% of the questions and answers were misnumbered.

Some mistakes you could figure out if you were testing yourself and wrote the full answer down, instead of just writing the lettered answer. (I recommend writing it out) Like the answer would be "A - 12.5mg." The back of the book would say "B. The answer is 12.5mg using proportions...." I did like that they explained the answers, when it was correct information!

However I had a real problem will actual misinformation. The book info says that USP (United States Pharmacopeia) oversees MedMARX, a system to identify Med errors. Google says it, too. The back of the book lists the answer as the FDA!

I rented the book but got a new book and was able to use the Access Code. The flash cards were tedious. I was actually looking forward to having cards made for me. There's like 700+ cards per chapter. A LOT of overinformation. Don't do it unless you want your brain cells to die. Plus, the website interface makes it difficult for efficient flash card studying. I liked the practice exams. Study mode will break down the questions as you go. The practice exam mode is good for giving you an indication of how you will do and you can review the answers after. I would score an avg of 70%.

I believe I passed (probably just barely) because of knowledge learned while working in a Pharmacy for 1+ year. This book helped me practice math... But there are other books that will break math down a lot better. Also, it was good for learning about drug classes and interactions, which was on the exam.

Of course your exam can/will be different.
