The NAPLEX® (North American Pharmacist Licensure Examination®) is the standard licensing exam that all U.S. pharmacy students must pass to practice pharmacy. It¿s an arduous 6-hour, 250-question exam that tests a daunting range of knowledge. In 2016 the pass rate fell to 86%. Preparing for the NAPLEX® by reviewing all the material from each pharmacy school course would be overwhelming. A far better approach would be to study only the information most relevant to the exam and to rehearse with lots of practice exam questions, and that¿s what The APhA Complete Review for Pharmacy contains. A current, one-volume compilation of pharmacy knowledge, The APhA Complete Review for Pharmacy is also a popular reference for busy practitioners wishing to stay current.

More than ten years ago, the faculty members of the Department of Pharmacology at the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine developed a review book of medical pharmacology in response to requests from our second year medical students who were preparing to sit for the Part I examination of the National Board of Medical Examiners. The students expressed a need for an organized approach to cope with the volume of basic science curricular material presented during the first two years. Therefore, our review book was not designed to provide a comprehensive text on pharmacology, but rather to provide the students with a significant core of information, as a refresher, after they had successfully completed a basic course in pharmacology. This book represents a major revision of our review of medical pharmacology. The book has been reorganized, updated and expanded to provide current information on major new drugs and information on older drug groups that typically are covered on licensure examinations. The book also has been expanded to include a large number of new questions for self-examination. The faculty have endeavored to retain a reasonably concise, relevant and readable review book that will provide the students with a thorough review of pharmacology. Students are advised to refer to comprehensive textbooks, as needed, to fill in any gaps in their knowledge which may be disclosed by the self-examinations.
