PHARMACY TECHNICIAN CERTIFICATION EXAM REVIEW, 3E is a comprehensive, all inclusive study tool to help prepare your students to become certified pharmacy technicians on a national level. This book mirrors content covered on the Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam (PTCE) and provides both exam content review and practice opportunities in a variety of formats. Ideal for review courses and for individual study, this book is a must-have tool for anyone preparing to take the PTCB and ExCPT exams. Sections are structured to help your students focus on critical topic areas outlined by the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board; including 14 chapters specifically on mathematics with examples and end-of-chapter review questions. This new edition also includes greatly expanded chapters on pharmacology, updated end-of-chapter practice questions, two cumulative tests at the end of the book, and solutions to all chapter review questions and practice exams. For even more practice, the back-of-book CD offers 600 additional review questions to create timed exams that simulate the actual PTCE!
