My experience with the PTCB exam. What you should know.

by Roger
(Fort Lauderdale, FL)

I just passed the PTCB exam yesterday. The test (to my surprise)delt alot with calculating proportions. I got several questions that were about pharm techs duties, math, and law. Before the test I was unsure that I'd pass because of the fact that I have'nt studied most of the medications except for the antibiotics but lucky I passed. (probably because of my excellent mathmatical skills,knowledge of abbreviations, knowledge of what pharm techs duties are, and my memory of the laws and organizations dealing with the pharmaceutical industry.

I strongly recommend that if you're on your way to taking the PTCB exam, please make sure you study all the laws and organizations, pharm techs duties in the pharmacy, every calculation and measurment, abreviations, and everthing about prescriptions and labels. And there's no possible way you can possibly fail. TAKE IT FROM ME, I JUST PASSED THIS EXAM YESTERDAY.

My test is set for 10/14. I'm preparing for the PTCB exam now. I also have excellent math skills. I'm currently brushing up my knowledge of pharmacy law and generic names of the most common meds. I feel more confident after reading your post

CONGRATS Rodger in FL!

I've been doing alligation problems over and over the past few days so I can tackle them if given. What type of math problems did you mostly see and what type of law related questions?

I want no surprises pertaining to math since that is my weak spot. Thanks.

Passed the Pharmacy Tech Test Today

Great website ! I used it for 2 days before the test along with a review book and I passed the PTCB! Well unofficially at least. (now waiting for certificate)

Do any of you know if the PTCB is recognized in Florida as of 2012? Their site is bit confusing and I only see ExCPT.

Thanks again for this great site!
