Random questions, little math, no biostat, bunch of cases, some onco and some questions that i never seen in my life of pharmacy school or work.....feel like crap. I know how people feel now. The feeling when you don't know what is going on. The feeling like we can only rely on miracle. God please send me peace, Your peace.....

Little math + bunch of cases + questions you have never seen before + feeling crappy = passing.

Relax. Grab a drink.

I thought math mas a major portion? This sucks.
For me it was ~30%, so yeah it was major, but it's different for everyone. Also it could depend on the perspective. Someone who breezes through math may think there wasn't a lot of math. In my case I felt like half of my exam was oncology because I didn't know the answer. In reality there might have been, oh, like 5-10 onco questions max? Your perceived reality can be very warped during the exam.
Seriously though, there aren't many questions on any particular topic, but there are all the topics in the world you can think about, some you may not have learned in school/reviewed, but if you go over the entire prep course, whichever prep book you chose, you'll be fine.

Oh! We were from Fort Collins, CO and moved to CA. Don't worry, MPJE is so much more easier than Naplex. and I have to study for CPJE now, I heard it's more difficult than Naplex. :(
I told my husband if I don't get CA license, we will move back to CO :)

For those states that posted results online, you will find out 48-hr (business day) post-exam. Otherwise, it'll depend on your state's snail mail time frame.

what do you see under "My active registration"? If you see "registration closed", that just means NABP already submitted your score to your state board.

If it still say "generated", that means they haven't submitted.

Congrats! I have to wait for 2 weeks... the only two states do not allow online score CA and Arkansas.... Why does CA make it so difficult? aren't they the state of technology? and with state budget cut and crying for no money, they still want to MAIL the results.

When are you planning on taking the CPJE? I'll be taking that as well. I kept postponing the exam ever since I was done with the NAPLEX (haven't been very focus on the studying).

I am planning for mid Nov. I will go ahead and schedule the exam that way I don't put it off. Still waiting for the weissman community law book to arrive but I will concentrate more on the pharm part and go easy on the law.

Congrats on passing the NAPLEX!!! (Who cares what your score was :p).

I'm aiming to take mine next month, but we'll see (since rescheduling is free with cpje...lol). But I don't want to wait too long either. I need to push myself harder on this one as well. Good luck to both of us.

When did you take the NAPLEX and what date did you receive the results? I took the NAPLEX for CA on 9/18 and it's really torturous for the CA BOP to have people wait so long to know their results!!! All of my friends who took it for states that do online scoring already know their results. Good luck with your CPJE! I just can't seem to focus on that when I have no idea what my NAPLEX score is.

I got the letter exactly one week after the exam. So you should be getting it pretty soon! I know how you feel, hanging there! I think good news is on the way to you!

You will be fine. Remember the math, the interesting side effect of particular drugs (ACE-I : cough, hyperkalemia) yeah. Don't forget to breath :)
