The Science Behind Mobile Learning:
Overloading your brain with too much information at once is a common study mistake. Research has shown that smaller, more frequent study sessions are the key to knowledge retention. In other words, taking short quizzes on the go is a much more effective means of exam preparation than reading page after page in a textbook. Apps offer the benefit of interaction, which means you’re far more likely to remember a concept you engage with rather than one you’ve only read about.
Take your pharmacy technician studies with you, no matter where life takes you.

Ratings and ReviewsSee All
I studied Mosby’s PTCE review book maybe 20 days collectively over the course of a month. In the last week of my studying I used this app as a means to self assess my studying and it was extremely helpful. It helped me get an idea of what details I had to narrow down on which were practically identical to the actual PTCB test. But understand this is best used as a SUPPLEMENT. I do not recommend this being your one and only studying material. Needless to say I passed my exam. With the use of the Mosby’s book and this app, I hadn’t encountered any questions on the exam that I didn’t have at least an IDEA on how to answer. Didn’t draw any blanks whatsoever. I was unsure of some questions but never clueless. Best of luck ! Btw I used the upgrade with 400 questions and answered 280 of them. If you’re only using the basic package, then none of what I said applies.
Thanks to this app I am now a CPhT.
Worth the upgrade! A must have for anyone planning on taking the certification exam. If you or your employer are already risking $129 for you to take the PTCE, it is well worth you spending the extra $10 on this app.
Suggestion to the developer. Categorize questions better in the exam builder. (i.e. “Pharmacy Math” only having questions about basic calculations, IV drip rates, formulas, metric conversions, etc.) With the categories given, it was inconvenient to sift through questions and narrow down the types I wanted to practice. Also, as someone with retail pharmacy experience I was fairly well versed on brand/generic medication names. However, there should be an entire category of its own for those who may not be as familiar.
Super helpful as supplemental material - passed!
I saw this app several months before I was set to take the exam and basically answered a few questions every other day from the “Ultimate” package without any other supplemental material. This was super helpful in getting me familiar with different concepts and with starting to memorize difficult information very early. Then, about 6 days leading up the the exam, I reviewed the Mosby book chapters each day and used this to quiz myself over the material. Super helpful because although I started ACTUALLY studying 6 days before, I already knew a lot of the information from just using the app in my free time. 100% recommend and I PASSED!
