I failed the spring 2019...got a 474/500. Any tips or resources would be great...retaking in the fall. My accp books were from 2016 so I had to order the new 2019 books that just got released in May 2019.
I used ACCP and ASHP. They complement each other to fill in the gaps. However, if you are able to read and work on all the questions in the ACCP book including the patient cases I think your chances will be higher. Also I found this free website VERY useful....pharmacyquestionbank.com...100 pharmacotherapy questions and a section of 42 questions for the biostats (helped me a lot). I worked on all the other sections in the bank though...geriatric, pediatrics, etc. Sounds overwhelming but go for it. Good Luck!
I plan on taking the BCPS next spring 2020, what did you feel about the exam? What do you recommend? Which part did you find most difficult? I was thinking about reading the naplex book to review and get started... what do you think? Any tips will be appreciated by a lady
I just took
i just took it this morning . PM mehmm not sure?!
I recently took my bcps recertification exam. Most of the questions were on management and pharmacoeconomics! Barely had any cases! It has fallen off my interest! If it's not going to add much to your career, I'd recommend to skip it for something else! They even had questions on the PGY2 residency for fu$#*k sakes! Lol!
Does anyone know if BPS sends an email when the scores are released or do we need to check the website around Thanksgiving? Last year, it looks like the scores were released around November 22nd-ish, per the SDN postings. Thanks in advance!
Ugh, you're right! That does line up with the email they sent saying results will be released first week of December... that's awful.The only thing that has me skeptical about results coming this week or next week is that last years testing cycle ended a week earlier. This falls cycle was 3 weeks in duration compared to 2 before. I’m hoping that doesn’t set the release back into December :/
That’s what I’m thinking too. Just a difference of 1 week so between Monday and Wednesday of next week before they close for thanks givingThe official release (bps announcement/email) is early december but scores have been uploaded this week last year. Someone mentioned that the test period was shorter last year, which is true, by a week. Im thinking fall 2019 scores will start to upload next week.
