A lot of prospective pharmacy technicians don't know and they should know. That the national ptcb exam is a test similiar to the SAT/GED test.

When you want high scores or to pass any test you need to know what to study for.

So the goal is you want to become a certified pharmacy technician and the only way to accomplish that is to pass the national ptcb test. Passing this test allows you to register with your local state board of pharmacy.

So what book covers every area that you need to know on the national ptcb test at www.ptcb.org, it's simple, study smarter not harder and know what to study for.

After taking the national pharmacy test 2 times, the first time I flunked because I did not know what material to study for. The 2nd time I passed after doing research and finding out that "Delmars Pharmacy Technician Certification and Review by Patricia K. Anthony" was a book that was modeled exactly after the national PTCB test. Every question on in that book covered what was on the national PTCB test.

I flunked the first PTCB test at M.I.T building 10 in Cambridge,MA and passed the second PTCB test at Pearson Education Center in Boston,MA( computerized testing facility)

Hi Virginia,
My friends took their test and now they're certify as pharm techs, however all the jobs they've got offer are mostly part-time a couple was offer full-time but that was before the economy has gone bad. I know you've mentioned you want a job that's secure, your best bet is to go for nursing. It'll cost you alot of money but once you're done with it, it will be worth it in a long run.

you can spend about $100 on a book + workbook, study it, spend $129 for the test and take it. plus another $100 or so for state registration.

Hi,

I am in the process of selcting a school. In FL (starting in Jan 2011) the state will only issue a license to an approved program so just buying a study book is not an option and you need a state license in order to work as a PT.

One of the schools I am looking at is telling me that I will be unable to sit for the PTCB exam if I do not go to a progrmatically approved school. Is this true? I am not seeing that this is a restriction on the PTCB site. Could this be new?

Thx,
Linda

Hi all,

I am getting prepared for PTCE and wish to know about what percentage of exam would be about drugs. I know that I am good at maths. So do you think I can pass the exam if I score good in maths and very less in drugs? What type of drug questions appear in the exam? Is it like Brand/generic, functions, side effecs/Adverse effects, contraindications, Mechanism of action? Please help. Thank you.

No. You do not have to attend a school to take the PTCB exam. Just sign up for the exam online and you can be scheduled to take the exam. I took the exam at pearson.

Hi,

Congrats. What study guide did you use? Any tips you can give? I have yet to study for it. But.. the economy is going to get better. There will always be a need in any medical profession. There are also hospitals that hire a lot and compound pharmacies. Local.. small ones too. Then the retail ones.
