What can I expect when taking the PTCB EXAM

I have read all the questions but none of them asked what I had to. I have several questions. When I go to test site, I need drivers license and ATT letter only right? What kind of questions did you encounter. Can you provide me with an example or so? I bought a CD from PTCB for $79 that has 4025 questions. It is 2009 CD. I don't see any flow rates or allegations on that CD. So do they change the PTCB test every year? On the CD for the math part It said a PINT was 500ml which got me confused because i learned its 480ml in class. It has answers so different than I've seen on this website and other sites. Almost everything on the CD is about DRUGS and how they affect the body and how they react if given with another specific drug. Also, on the cd I did not look at any question for 1 whole test and i got 87 out of 90. I just clicked whatever sounded right to me because i have read more than 5000 questions in class and other places. Any suggestions on how the PTCB exam looks on their computer screen? Is it similar to the practice questions here? I really want to pass it the first try. I do have a 4.0 gpa for my 4 years of high school and I am graduating this week!!!!!!

You don't want to just click on what ever answer you think is right. Believe me, I did that twice and failed twice. Just because you have a 4.0 gpa in high school doesn't mean anything on this test. I went to a school and studied just to be a Pharmacy Technician had a 4.0 gpa and did not pass the test. On the test there is a lot more than just the drugs. There is parts on the generic names for drugs, the classifications,and also Pharmacy Law and math. Good Luck taking your test and I hope that you DO pass the test on your first try.
