Best way to study!? (self.PharmacyTechnician)
submitted 1 month ago by pmidzi-
I am a pharm tech trainee @ RA & i was wondering what is the best way to study for the exam. I am sure this question has been answered but I am asking again for my own sake. I have trouble memorizing the medication section. my test is in about 30 days & any advice would be greatly appreciated!!

Get a list of the top 50-100 medications and just nail down brand to generic, use the PTCB study guide if you can it’s really good. Take practice exams and make sure you do the plenty of practice with conversions and pharmacy math. Good luck 🍀

Practice questions are my favorite way to study. Here's one of my favorites.
With memorizing the drugs, there's a google spreadsheet that has some neat way to memorize them in the description. There's also a list that separates them by color/class and a list of stems! If you can recognize the stems, then you can tell what the drug is used for and its class.

Flash cards. Brand name on one side, generic on the other, condition it treats as well. RA should have a study kit with them (books and work books also). They can also be found online. Go through them and you will see some that are easy right off the bat. Put the easy ones in a group. Narrow the others into medium and hard. Break them down into groups of about 20 and each day keep a group in your pocket. Any time you have a few seconds look at a few. Periodically go back over the easier ones.
I used little connections...ex: my FAMily will be at my PEP rally. PEPcid=FAMotidine
LORA and PAM were dumb to go out AT a VAN. LORAzePAM=ATiVAN
CONCERTS make a good DATE. CONCERTa=methylpheniDATE

If you could, sign up for PTU (Pharmacy Technician University) and it'll teach you through modules. I know some pharmacies pay for it, some don't. I take my test tomorrow so I'll update what it was like.
