    Hello, I am considering the PTCB exam. Please tell me what is PhTR and how it differs from PTCB? Thanks so much!

      PTCB – Pharmacy Technician Certification Board
      That accrediting body offers National Pharmacy Technician Certification (CPhT) to those that pass their exam.

      PhTR is a registered Pharmacy Technician in Texas. That person has been approved by the Texas board of pharmacy to practice as a Pharmacy Technician in that state.

    Course was great! Passed the PTCB Exam just in time for Christmas. Minus 1 star because they wouldn’t apply my coupon code after purchase.

    This is my first time using rxtechexam. The material given is all useful information that will help me with passing my exam. They break down the courses into subjects, followed by a quiz. The site is easy to navigate as well. I would definitely recommend this course.

    Prepare you in 4-6weeks is not a joke. I started last week and I almost made it half way through.

    The instructor gives prompt responses to all my emails in my case like in half an hour(?) even at bed time which I was very impressed.

    150 bucks is very affordable especially with the change to this year which you need a course cert just to sit for the exam. I appreciate saving my money and time. Honestly that’s all it matters.

    The lecture also prepares you practical stuffs and not just for the exam. For example, instead of giving just a sig codes (in most of the exam books) he teaches you how to actually put peices together. That was really helpful.

    One star less is just because the PowerPoint(lecture) slides are not made printable. It took a long time for me to take notes down. And combining 200 drugs with anatomy chapter for the graded quiz was overwhelming although it made lot of sense.
    Overall this course is great so far!
