It is like remaining upto date with the Pharmacy Tech. knowledge. You will get more information on PTCB.org website about what you need to do once you pass the exam.

Hi everyone. I took my exam, last week and I passed easy,but It wasn't the PCTB exam.In my state, Pharmacy technicians have the option on taking two exams, both are recognized but the (PCTB) Whoever is struggling with PCTB exam, find out if there are other options on your State. www.ExCPT.com. a lot easier than PCTB exam, cheaper and you find out right away. you get a letter stating you passed or failed. I don't know, why I did't find out about this exam a lot sooner. A lot better, this exam is based on retail knowledge than Hospital setting Pharmacy.

Just took the computer exam and passed :-). I studied for 5 days using PCTB review 2nd ed. by Johnston ( recommended by the Pearson website). Just know your math and policies and you should do fine. I have the book for sale if you're interested, barely 1 week old :-)

Good Job!! I wish I can pass mine too in December! Im just reading over the generics/brand names/classes. Next week I will go over the math and the week after I will go over the law. Hopefully in Dec. I just want to make sure I am ready. I heard this was harder than the Excpt. :) Thanks for the offer on the book, but I have one :)

Thanks. Looks like you havea good game plan, so I'm sure you'll do fine. Take a jacket to the testing center, the AC was on full blast today even though we were in the 60's. Also, they're very strict. They made me turn my pockets inside-out and spit out my gum!!!!

Yep you sure can. Its 129 bucks to take the PTCE if you pass your a CphT.

I took a 6month program at a local college took the PTCE twice already and failed both times. I just took it the second time 11/20 pisses me off so much. And there isn't one area I got stuck with I had 30 minutes left when I finally finished I thought this was way easier than my first exam still fail I am going to give up if I don't pass it next time. Good luck tez

Thanks Meera. I don't know what to say. It is very pricey I don't know what to do just to pass this exam. All I need to do is pass so I can just do CE the rest of my life. Do you know if I will be able to take it again in two months or do I wait 6months I took it only two times so far.( Whats the likelihood of passing this thing I hate taking it and twice is to many times when everyone else passes it on there first try. How the heck is everyone passing it on there first try?

I know it is boring, but you need to study at least 200 drugs -- brand names and generic names.. I am studying the same right now...
www.sublimsport.com is a great site to find information for any drug name in question.

my suggestion is to get a job, you were fortunate to pass the exam, alot of us are struggling and this is our passion. You don't strike me as the person to have wanted to go into the pharmacy setting. Congrats on your certification, but I sure would know what I would do if and when I pass, I intend to become part of the pharmacy work force, and I'll be grateful when I do

Thank you Linda. Third time yea I really really hope so. Can't brag thats for sure doesn't matter if I went to school and did all that because you still need to be able to pass the exam which is challenging me right now one two many times. If you really want to pass it, it takes a lot of dedication and preparation that is just overwhelming me. Whether I get a certificate or not I still will keep a job just won't get raises like the certified techs. Thats the only down side to all this headache

Nice hearing from you linda how did your 2nd try go? Did you take it Nov. 18 I think it was? Correct me if I am wrong. Hope your doing good! Take care, talk to you soon.

I've passed pharmacy technician 12 days ago. I would like to pharmacy technician registration but I haven't got my certificate from PTCB yet. I can't complete my application for TSBP(state board of pharmacy) because:

- I don't have my number license and the date it will be expire (I'll be receive my license by the mail in 1-3 weeks after that).

- I have a high school diploma in Viet Nam and I translated it into Enghlish and certified in Viet Nam. Is my high school diploma approved?

- Can I work at pharmacy after I registered for TSBP?

What should I do now? Can you help me! Thank you!

Hi Deena
When I took my first exam, which I failed......the thing that stood out most to me on the exam was conversions and just the everyday workings of a pharmacy and the technicians role. You may want to memorize a few drugs, although they really do try to throw in a few tricky questions. Good luck and hope you do well

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to share my good fortune with you. I got a temporary job working for Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan. After the temporary assignment, there is opportunity to be hired in permanently. I am so excited and just wanted to let you know not to give up and give the temp agencies a try. It is a good way to get some experience.

probably not. the workbook by perspective press is pretty good and it's priced similarly. they have a lot of questions for each topic, a practice ptcb exam (which was very close to the real thing btw), a practice expct or something exam, and another calculations test.

make sure you're VERY comfortable with math and conversions. also learn some of the workplace stuff like DEA form 222 is for ordering schedule 2 drugs, what techs can do/not do, etc. THEN if you have time, tackle the drugs.

To me, the exam is somewhat difficult. There were a lots of drugs to drugs interaction questions ( i guess u just have to know the drugs) . 2/5 of the exam was math so i suggest u to study the math section well. 1/5 was about laws, 1/5 was about phamarcy settings like: wat u suppose to do when this happen ( spill, drugs shortage....) and the rest is about 200 drugs. Study hard and you'll do well.
Good luck.

i took mine at san dimas.
approximately
60/90 were math-related
20/90 were stuff regarding the workplace (regulations, terminology, scope of work, etc)
10/90 were drug-specific (brand-generic, interactions, refrigeration, etc)

you could if you feel like it would help but i purchased the practice exam the first time and nothing from the exam was on the test. it wasnt even close. i failed the first time and took the exam again and purchased another practice exam and nothing from the practice exam was on the test again. I dont know why they sell them if nothing from it will be on the exam. to pass the exam i studied mosbys review it has a cd rom. i really studied the medications and math from this book.
and for the rest of the exam i studied the pharmacy technician mine is third edition from the morton publishing company. the phamacy technician is a green book and it was the one that was given us by my pharmacy technician teacher in school. even though i failed the first time i only studied this green book and i was just 25 points from passing. when i studied the green book i actually typed it out word for word and had my own review and answer worksheets that i created for each chapter. you know just type out word for word and fill in the blank. then i would have an answer sheet for myself. only chapters 5,15,16 3,13,14,7,9,12 is what i typed and studied. he told us that was what would be on the test and he was correct when i went back the same thing was on the test i just needed help with my medication and math that was not mentioned in the pharmacy technician and that is where mosbys review came in. good luck i hope this helps

There are, tests from each chapter,so you have to study all chapters, but it is better for you, focus on the chapters that are easier for you to memorize.In my opinion pharmacy math is easy to learn.
