I’ve decided that I want to pursue becoming BCPS certified. For those that have taken it, I have a couple questions for you to decide the best way to study for it:
1) On a scale of 1-10, how hard is it?
2) What areas did you focus on the most and the least?
3) After the exam, what areas do you...
Didn't find a thread for Spring 2022 so figured I'd make one.
I took the exam in Fall 2021 but unfortunately failed. Was not too far off though.
In any case, I am retaking it this Spring and hope I pass. Anyone else taking it? What/how are you studying?
Based on published results, typically more people pass recertification exam than the initial board certification exam. This makes sense given that they have seen exam material before and presumably have more experience. Anedotally, it also seems people who sadly don't pass on their first attempt...
hey guys, was wondering, for those who did the fall BCPS in last years- when did you recieve your results. I know BPS says couple weeks but not too accurate of when results come out. Anyone here did BCPS fall 2018.. Thank you :)
Hey everyone! I have looked upon the posts on this board every since I was about to take the NAPLEX in 2016 so I appreciate all the help!
This is my first time ever posting so I hope I can get some help of my own!
I work in an ambulatory care pharmacy doing the pharmacy's MTM's, giving...
I got a lot of questions regarding how I did on the exam, request for pointers, and what material I used to review. So here is my tell all on how I passed. For reference, I did decent with a passing score in the low 600s.
Material I used to study for the 2018 Spring BCPS exam:
There are tons of posts on NAPLEX and MPJE; however, not a lot of BCPS posts. I am looking for advice on how to prepare for BCPS from pharmacists who have recently taken the BCPS within the past 2-3 years. I don't have any close friends who took or know of someone that took the BCPS yet. I truly...

Anyone interested in taking BCPS Pharmacotherapy exam in Fall 2018/Spring 2019? I am selling the materials just released this month from ACCP.
"Updates in Therapeutics®: Pharmacotherapy Preparatory Review and Recertification Course, 2018 Edition"
downloadable/printable PDFs of two-volume...
I recently became BCPS certified and am looking into options for recertification. I am considering the monthly ASHP subscription vs the PSAP recertification through ACCP.
Does anyone have experience/recommendations for either?
Anyone else sign-up to take the BCPS exam in the Fall?
I am starting to get nervous about this exam already. I have the 2017 ACCP materials and have been sitting in on the VA BCPS review series.
How is studying going for everyone/how are you mastering the material? Thoughts from those who...
I have the option of getting either the BCPS or the BCCCP (critical care specialty).
I'm debating which would be most beneficial - I work nights alone at an inpatient pharmacy. Considering I do not intend to become specifically an "ICU pharmacist", the benefit of these then, to my...
any word out on whether lab values will be provided on the exam vs needed to be memorized? And what about equations? The BCS website lists "pharmacokinetics" as an area of testing but that's PRETTY BROAD!
Trying to avoid wasting time doing a bunch of Pk equation and lab values flash cards if...
I am seeking two organized and reliable study partners to study together to take the BCPS (Pharmacotherapy) exam this fall. I would like only two partners as a study group that is too big does more harm than good...but maybe I can consider 3 (4 total) My plan is as follows:
- We would...
Taking the exam exactly 4 weeks from today and I'm nervous! I feel like I'm studying using the ACCP notes and lectures but not retaining much :(
So at this point, I think my best bet is to do as many practice questions as possible. Is anyone willing to split cost/sell any question banks with...
Hello, I am planning on taking the BCPS this spring. I have the ACCP review, but the material seems so heavy. I am wondering if any of you did a test bank? Which one did you do? Was that enough to study with? Any tips are appreciated!! Thanks
Anybody's enrolled into ASHP's BCPS Pharmacotherapy Recertification e-learning at eLearning.ashp.org?
What's you impression or this recertification option?
Are the exams afterwards hard to take?
For a $1000 (registration ans hotel), is the two-day, CGP Boot Camp conference worth it?
Alternatively, should I simply purchase and review the latest CGP material?
I doubt my 2014 ACCP BCPS videos and .pdfs still apply.
