Tips to pass the pharmacy technician certification
As a pharmacy technician your role is to help the pharmacist with the day-to-day duties in the pharmacy work environment. You’ll mostly find yourself filling the patient’s prescriptions, arranging appointments, putting labels on the medication and other such tasks. One thing you won’t be able to do is dispense medical advice to the patient’s, the reason being is that to get this kind of job you don’t need any formal requirements, you can often times simply learn while on the job.
To enable yourself to get an improved position, you can apply to take the pharmacy technician certification test. In addition to that if you manage to pass the exam you can earn better pay by being a formally certified pharmacy tech. The pharmacy technician certification examination that is currently offered by the pharmacy technician certification board is the standard in this field. Sitting this exam will stretch your knowledge to limit and also help you develop even more skills, let me help you by giving you a few tips to get a higher score on the test.
The first thing that really helped me was to set aside time during your day specifically for studying for the test. This is gonna be a great help for keeping you on track so you can study in a more systematized manner. Make sure that your schedule is something that you’re able to stick with because trying to be too ambitious can cause you to burn yourself out. Sticking to a realistic schedule is also going to prepare you well for the exam over a significant period of time, thus preventing you from trying to do an all-night cram session before the night of the test.
Another thing that can really help you is to study with some other people. Studying in a group will help you understand the exam better and allow you to share knowledge. It will also give you the opportunity to help other people, so try to find some people in your area or your classmates and study together. Another thing that can really help is to get some actual real-life experience in the field, so try to find a part-time job in your area.
So try to plan out your studying ahead of time and try to study each day. And on the night before the test make sure to get a good nights sleep and eat a good breakfast the following morning and I’m sure you’ll pass your test no problem.
