I remember what it was like to study for the NAPLEX. Overwhelming doesn't begin to describe the feeling. Where do you start? How do you prioritize and review for this gigantic exam? When I am preparing to take pharmacy exams, I have a very difficult time learning and retaining information from massive review books. I find myself reading for 5-10 minutes and my mind begins to wander, retaining nothing of what I just read. After years of practice and test taking (NAPLEX, BCPS, CGP etc.), I have found that I learn most efficiently by memorizing information in short important bullet points. In this study guide, I have selected the most commonly used medication classes and have provided you with my most highly testable pearls on each class. In this book, I cover over 150 medication classes which includes nearly 400 medications! I have created bullet points which will help you review more efficiently and not waste your limited study time. This resource is not intended to be a package insert for every medication, but rather a way to try to prioritize your study process and understand the major "nuggets" of information that you must know to help you pass the NAPLEX. The intent is to give you a brief, incredibly helpful review of the most important medications you will likely be tested on the NAPLEX exam. I truly hope this book helps you pass the NAPLEX the first time! NAPLEX is a registered trademark of NABP. Meded101 and this study guide are not affiliated or endorsed by NABP or the NAPLEX Exam.

The PASS-NAPLEX course book is the study guide for pharmacy graduates preparing for the North American Pharmacist Licensure Examination. The content of this book is the product of NAPLEX Blueprint ONLY. No extra material will be added to waste your time. Students who did not pass the NAPLEX exam not because they did not study, but because they over study. Let keep in mind that this is an entry level cumulative test. This is the Cliffs Notes to the exam. The focus of the PASS-NAPLEX text is to pass the exam with little effort. For the past two decades, not one of my students under my direction at the hospitals have failed the exam and I intended to keep it that way for the next two decades. There are two volumes to the course. The volume one contains 38 topics, one of which focuses on the cardiovascular topic. The volume two contains 21 topics, one of which focuses on the anti-infective topic. For each topic, it is separated into three sections. The first section shows the correlation between the drug mechanism of action to its adverse side effects and patient consultation. The second section groups all drugs dosage together for comparison because in practice, evaluate drug dosage is one of the pharmacist major responsibility. The third section is the review of the pathophysiology of the topic. Information required as a competent entry level pharmacist will be highlighted and underlined. PASS-NAPLEX offers important information about the knowledge, judgment, and skills that are expected of an entry-level pharmacist. Thank you for buying the books!! Let take the test and then give your honest feedback. Passing the exam is the only thing that matter. My challenge to everyone who take the exam is to think difference and be difference! "Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." Albert Einstein Best of luck with the exam!
