I just took the MPJE for Washington State.
The federal laws saved my butt The state laws were hard to study, there was no review guide, and no test questions for the state of washington
If you study for the same state you went to university in you will have no problem. If you study for another state you will be in the same boat as I was. Some states (California) do have review guides.
The red book was a very nice federal review for me
These two CD's have review tests that were very nice
I wouldn't bother with a full review course unless you are very weak because they are very expensive.
TESTING FORMAT (sux)
90 computer based questions 60 actually count. The questions can be unfairly tricky and not straightforward at all.
You see one question at a time on your screen. You either know the answer or you don't. Once you have advanced to the next question there is no going back (!!!) So you cannot save the tough questions for later. You cannot use the exam as a reference. You cannot change your mind. Your first choice is your only choice. The exam is given at a local Sylvan Learning Center which is cool and results are posted from the board within a week. That was cool.
Sample Question from my exam illustrating how tricky the bastards are.
A customer brings you a bottle from another pharmacy and requests a transfer. You
a) copy the information from the bottle
b) copy the information from the bottle and speak with the patient for backround information about the prescription
c) get a new prescription from the physician
The correct answer - speaking with the pharmacist at the originating pharmacy was not even offered as a choice so I chose C
Lots of questions like that which talk around the subject requiring very intimate knowledge of the law to pick up what is not being said.
