Pharmacy technicians today play a vital role in the pharmacy business and at other pharmacy practice sites. Technicians interact with patients, physicians, nurses, and health insurance providers. They work under the pharmacist's supervision and are allowed to assist in pharmacy activities that do not require the professional judgment of a pharmacist. Technicians are becoming more involved in the production and technical aspects of pharmacy, while pharmacists have become more involved with patient-care activities and have become the "dispensers of medicine".

The intention of this crossword puzzle book is to prepare any student to pass the National Certified Pharmacy Board exam. A Pharmacy Technician career is very demanding and rewarding. To become a National Certified Pharmacy Technician, one must be prepared to only have to take once because the cost of the exam is expensive and will continue to rise. All students must review for this board exam. There are several different study techniques that can be employed, including flash cards, practice tests, and games, such as crossword puzzles. It is important to select the right method to study for the board exam. Whichever methods students select have an impact on the outcome of the exam. These crosswords puzzles can help students to memorize and/or recognize the answer since the board exam is mainly multiple choices. This crossword puzzle book contain more than 100 pages. The National Board Exam consists of many different types of exams. It can be one of the following: 1) 80% math and 20% drugs; 2) 80% retail and 20% hospital; 3) 70%hospital and 30% math; 4) 75% retail and 25% math; and 5) 90% top commonly used drugs and 10% math. This National Board Exam is not easy to pass unless students have mastered their drug knowledge as well as other subjects. In order to pass the Board Exam on the first try, one would benefit from using crosswords or word search methodology to study and attend the preparation classes. This book consists mainly of brand and generic names of the top 300 drugs with their drug classification. Students who use crosswords puzzles retain their memorization much better of the drug names and will have a higher chance of passing the exam. It is not easy to shuffle these 300 drugs, brand name and generic name, to a person's brain. Studies have shown that our brain can only absorb less than forty percent each day. Studying is a very time consuming process. It takes time for the brain to digest and store and convert into long term memory. Crossword puzzles and word search is by far the most effective style of learning for most students. It can help students build confidence when time to take the exam. The National Certified Board of Pharmacy exam contains mainly multiple-choice questions. There are a few questions on the exam that are for pre-trial purposes and will not scored. Each question provides four choices with only one correct or best answer. Students will not know which questions are scored and which are not. It is best to attempt to answer every single questions. Selecting the best answer reflects the outcome of students' memorization or recognize the right answer. Students who use this textbook and attend the preparation classes will have a greater chance of passing the Board Exam. Passing the exam depends on the students' time spent in studying and memorize all these top 300 drugs.
