True. No table is provided. But you can use a calculator (I had a solar powered one...and I was in a room with no windows) . I just worked through all the calculations first and answered the rest of the questions last.william4930 said:I took the test in March and no conversion tables were provided. You actually have to know how to convert from one measurement to another. The test is actually not that bad. I believe about 70% of that people that take the test pass. I highly recommend you guys study the math section. About half the test was calculations. Good luck.
What is the answer to that question? Are injectables always represented by mass/volume? or is it mass solute/mass of solution? Can you assume that it is 50% in terms of mg/ml so it's 1.5mg in 3mls?WVUPharm2007 said:It's an easy exam. Just make sure you know how many milligrams of mag sulfate are in 3mLs of a 50% sol'n. The percentage thing is something most don't pick up in casual retail or hospital pharmacy. When I took it 4 years ago it was the only question I didn't know how to do because I wasn't exposed to it.
Me too...wouldn't that info have to be given on the label, as so many mEq/mL and/or so many mg/mL (assuming liquid form)?What is the answer to that question?

Ugh, i feel stupid!
dwanna022:Hi:whats the lowest u can get on the testthere's no tables. I think they give you easy stuff though... like 1 grain is 60 grams.. so obviously 1/2 grain is 30 grams.... switch ml to mg... stuff like that, no rocket scientist. I passed the exam with an 850 out of 950 (or 900?) don't quite remember....
