What is PTCB's policy for retaking the PTCE after an unsuccessful attempt?

Candidates who fail the PTCE can retake up to three times. After three retakes, candidates will need to appeal to PTCB. All requests will be reviewed and approved on a case-by-case basis. For the first two retakes, candidates are required to wait 60 days before taking the PTCE again. For the third retake, candidates are required to wait six months. For example, if a candidate fails (for the first or second time) on May 1, 2011, the candidate can reapply immediately, but his/her 90-day eligibility period would not begin until July 1, 2011 (60 days after the failure date) and would extend through September 30, 2011. If a candidate fails the PTCE for the third time on May 1, 2011, the candidate's 90-day eligibility period would not begin until November 1, 2011 (six months after the third failure date).

it said you have 3 times, after that you have to appeal PTCB board. So how can someone take it 4 time? secondly, is this 3 time a YEAR or 3 time a life time.?

Yes ptcb only let you take the test 3times a year. I also tried the Excpt certification exam while I was waiting to retake the ptcp. I knew it wldnt be useful for me anyway if I decide to move out of State.

I know urus is being swamped with requests for the study materials and that they are probably too busy at the moment so I was wondering if anyone on here who already got the study materials could just forward it to me? I really would appreciate it! It would mean getting the 3rd shift position at my store that's coming up in a couple of months (that is, if I can prepare for, take, and pass the PCTB o.O ). :o)

email is kennys.girl68@hotmail.com

Thanks to anyone who can help!

Hi Urus,

Could you send it to howeysays@yahoo.com ?

- I'm taking my PTCB test on Tuesday. I work in a corporate division for retail pharmacy and have never worked in a pharmacy. In January I was told I needed to pass this for my job. I've def. Put in the time. I've covered the mosbys book, complete math review, apa the pharmacy technician, the APA workbook and certification review, and used pharmacy tech study.com. Everyone tells me when the time and work I've put in I'll be more than find, just nervous I guess haha.

Hey guys, I took my exam tonight and even though I passed, it was NOT easy! I studied mostly math as it was what most people recommended, but only 30 or so questions dealt with calculations...the rest involved identifying generic/brand names and the disorders associated with them, laws and acts, and standards of practices including but not limited to: Drug disposal and medicare. You know, the things I did minimal studying for!

If you think you'll only get by studying the math, think again! Good luck guys, gotta sleep for my interview tomorrow <3

Hi Rob
First of all "Congrats"
I need to know out of 90 questions, how many answers to be correct to pass the exam.?
Did u got questions on disorders laws in detail, deep or only superficial.?

I think i will be ready for the second time of the test. Took me a month to study, but wasnt on the righ track. I didnt master laws, admin, and drug names. Focus too much on math, and barely master it.i would say takes time and read books, learn all 200 top drugs, master calculation then im sure the test will be cake. Also i use mats from this site. Thanks all. I will not fail this time!

Hey guys, just a follow up on my experience:

I was very lucky to get a job at a Target the day after I passed my PTCB. Currently being paid 12.25/hr and am still in training. Has been very fun!

I also got my PTCB results today:

***Keep in mind I gave myself two weeks to study and dedicated 90% of my time studying math and 10% in everything else***

Overall: 747
Assisting the Pharmacist In Serving Patients: 742
Maintaining Medication and Inventory Control Systems: 843
Participating in the Administration and Management of Pharmacy Practice: 622

As you guys can see, even though I totally bombed the last section (which I imagine is laws?), I excelled enough in the math section that it still kept me at an overall 742. Long story short: It IS possible to get away with just studying the math...but do not think for a second that's all that will be on the exam! Be careful! Your mileage may vary.

My advice to anyone wondering how long you should study for: Ideally, give yourself at least ONE MONTH. If you are good at math, it is possible to pass with 1-2 weeks.

I passed, but I will repeat this: THE TEST IS NOT AS EASY AS SOME PEOPLE SAY IT IS! STUDY. EVERYTHING.

Good luck guys!!! Special shout-out to Urus for being such a damn good person :)
