“A lot of people spend too much money going to school to get this certification, even when not required. I would get a job in a pharmacy even just as a cashier, to familiarize yourself with the terms and drugs. You can buy many study books or programs online at some good prices. Once you feel comfortable, try taking the test. Even if just to get an idea of the content. And if after that you feel that you need to take a class, you can go for that option.”
