Websites such as PTCBPracticeTest.com and Pharmacy-Tech-Study.com are resources to prepare for the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board exam. Each site offers one or more practice exams of varying lengths to test pharmacological knowledge.
The PTCBPracticeTest.com site provides two practice PTCB tests. The first consists of 15 multiple-choice questions that span topic materials such as prescription drug names and effects, abbreviation names, and unit conversions. The second test covers similar material in 10 multiple-choice questions. The site also features a 50-question drug quiz, detailing the brand and generic names for a variety of medications. It also offers a pharmacy abbreviation test with 45 questions. The Pharmacy Technician Study Guide webpage on the site provides links to other websites that offer review material for the PTCB exam.
The Pharmacy Tech Study site offers users specific tutorials for six categories of pharmacy technician knowledge: abbreviations, dosage forms, pharmokinetics, legalities, prescriptions and math. It also features two rounds of practice tests, with the first being divided into 14 tests of 10 questions each. The second, more rigorous, set of tests offers 12 tests of 20 questions each. The site also provides test-taking strategies, schedules for upcoming tests, and compares the differences between the PTCB exam and the Exam for the Certification of Pharmacy Technicians. The latter is a competing organization for certifying pharmacy technicians that is not as widely recognized nationally as the former.
