Supplemental Materials

What is included with this book?

  • The Used and Rental copies of this book are not guaranteed to include any supplemental materials. Typically, only the book itself is included. This is true even if the title states it includes any access cards, study guides, lab manuals, CDs, etc.


For all courses intended to help students prepare for the PTCB pharmacy technician certification exam.

This book has one purpose to aid students in successfully passing the PTCB national certification exam on the first attempt. Unlike other PTCB study guides, Certification Exam Review for the Pharmacy Technician weights its content to precisely reflect the PTCB'S exam weightings, and carefully avoids distracting material not covered on the exam.

The authors present five complete practice exams, each with 90 multiple-choice questions designed to closely replicate the actual three-hour PTCB exam experience. All answers are provided, along with clearly explained rationales for each. To provide even more practice, the book also contains three math and two trade/generic classification tests.

Accompanying CD-ROM includes games and review materials.

Very Good August 8, 2011
Excellent customer service! The book arrived in just 2 days. I could not be more pleased with the "like new" condition. Also, this purchase saved me lots of money since I did not have to buy it from the bookstore.
