Free Study Material for PTCB Exam

by Jim
(Bridgeport, CT)

I prepared for the 2016 PTCB exam using the study materials here. I was doing well on the practice tests, so I figured I would do well on the test. I was in a very positive frame of mind as well. I went to the testing center and took the exam on March 4th of this year. I was in such a positive frame of mind that I would be successful that failing was was inconceivable to me. I answered all the questions, and thought I had scored high enough to pass. I was devastated to learn that the preliminary results shown on the screen at the testing center said that I had failed. This was my first time taking the test. Has failing the test on the first try happened to anyone before after using the study materials here? Also, how do you bounce back from being unsuccessful on the test? Thanks.

Your biggest advantage is now knowing the specific questions and format that they are asking it in.. what category questions were you unsure of? you can tailor your study to that...

also compare it to the practice tests here... if this was too easy then you should look at other practice exams..

I passed using mosby's pharmacy tech .. it wasn't a good book but i got the access code which gave me practice exams that broke it down which I believe helped more than the book did

More concise studying than trying to learn everything!

I took my test on 7/14/16. I studied from a mosbys book that was published in 2006. So you do not need to find an expensive book to pass this exam. Most of the questions are not straight forward. You have to think and exclude the wrong answers. My old book came with a cd. The week before the test I would take 90 questions and time myself. I made sure that I gave my self time to try to answer all of the questions. This was to help me prepare for the time aspect. I finished the PTCE with 20 minutes left. Do not spend all of your time reading a whole book. Read up on the sections you know you need to work on. Know the math, abbreviation,top 200 drugs, and LAWS! I cant stress the laws enough. Download the quizlet app to your phone. look up and save the top 200 drugs and pharmacy law. Quiz yourself daily. quizlet has options to match, test, and study each. I did a all of these and passed. Good Luck.
