    Hi Everyone,
    I took my first exam Oct 2013. The second time was last monday.
    First Time:
    Materials used: Rx Prep 2012
    Time to study :1 month
    Naplex Experience:
    A lot of calculations (+/_ 30). One part just of calc problems.
    Athma, psyc, naturals products, references questions
    I did not finished on time.

    2nd time
    Materials used :Rx Prep 2012 and RxPrep bank questions.
    Time to study: 3 months
    I also practiced in a community pharmacy ( 4 hrs/day ).
    I practiced calc daily
    Naplex Experience
    Just 15 calculations problems .They were between cases. No mosm, CrCl.
    A lot of ID questions.The first 2 cases with a lot of ID questions. Ck allergies and labs.
    A lot of HIV,Hep C and cancer questions.
    I finished the exam 20 minutes before.

    Each experience was different.
    My advise :practice calculations daily. Rx Prep bank of questions is a great tool.

    Someone wrote here the benefits to eat sugar or glucose during the break. I followed the advise. For me the second part was easier than the first one.

    About the button that changed from grey to orange.
    In my both experiences the button changed to orange.I think the button change when the Nabp send your score to the board.

    Good luck everyone!!!

    Do you remember if your status said "registration closed for ATT" that first time?

    Yes. The first time I was very excited, the status said registration closed and the button changed to orange. I was very disappointed when I received my score.
