    I can't wait to get this thing over with. Let's hope there's not a surprise blizzard like there was when I headed to take the PCAT.

    Good luck to any and all. Certification here we come!!!

    Me too! I just wish that it didn't take so long to get licensed in Texas.

    Good luck all!

    I've been taking classes that are sponsored through Walgreens. The books they use are from Perspective Press and is just called "The Pharmacy Technician." There is a math book, text book, review book, and flash cards with sig codes, conversions, and brand/generics.

    Every version is different, but I only remember roughly a dozen generic/brand questions on the September exam I took. The best thing to do is really know your conversions inside out. If you do well on math, you will do well.

    Know what a laminar flow hood is used for! :)

    I've been with walgreens since the first of september of this year - just aboutg 10 weeks. I am a pharmacy technician.

    I agree about rocking the test. I can't wait to have this notch in my belt. Compared to calculus and organic chemistry, this material is CAKE.

    Good luck!
