I know this questions is probably been asked here but I am just gonna ask again because I didnt find it on my own. Sorry
I am a 4th year pharmacy student and wanted to start studying for my Naplex exam during the Xmas break... and I was wondering what is the best material I should use to study? I have the Apha book and I read on other websites that it's a good book but goes too much into details. Some also said that Prontopass is the best and others said RxPrep is the best... I dont know which one to buy..,
Please help me if you can.
Thank you for your help in advance.

The APhA book worked great for me. I also found electronic flash cards for the top 100-200 drugs on the internet just to study brand/generic. I would focus a large portion of time on the math chapter. Good luck!

Hey there, is brand/generic a big portion of the test? It's all incorporated into the questions, right? As in brand and generic are used interchangeably to refer to a drug?

Also, are there a lot of dosing questions where you are required to know mg/kg of a drug? Dosing is my weakest point. :(

Yes, brand/generic names are a big deal. I would at least know the top 250 drug generic/brand names cold.

Thanks in advance!

I'm sure you could get away with that, but it would be risky. Also, you would definitely need to brush up on new drugs/guidelines that have come out since the release of that guide. The diabetes guidelines come to mind first.

I'm in the mindset where I feel that after spending so much on pharmacy school these last 4 years, what is another $50-150 to spend on the most up to date review materials for the Naplex? It's a drop of water in the bucket.

the 2010 version was probably created in 2009 so you are almost 2 years behind.
