The Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB®) brings you a calculations practice test comprised of questions used on previous PTCE® examinations. The app contains over 125 questions with detailed answer explanations which allow you to test your understanding of calculations and conversions commonly found on the real PTCE®.
Have you ever wondered how difficult an exam question is to real PTCE test takers? The PTCB Calculations Questions app now provides the difficulty level for each practice question. Questions belong to one of three difficulty categories: Easy, Medium, or Hard. After you answer a question you’ll see its difficulty level in the explanation section.
View your progress, track your history, and study on the go with the official test prep app of the PTCB®.

Ratings and Reviews
I absolutely LOVE the app! As an educator, going through the “Question of the Day” with my students every day has been a tremendous help! However, I constantly have problems loading the “Question of the Day.” Usually, I can “kill” the app, then open it again and it will work. The last few days, the QOTD doesn’t even come up. It’s been very frustrating. I will say that my students pass rates have gone up from 67% to 100% since I have implemented the QOTD in the classroom, though!

Same as ptcb pocket
Download the ptcb pocket prep book and upgrade for $9.99 it's the exact same app except the pocket prep teaches more than just math and it's free! BUT I must say that this app was suggested by my professor and it is really helping me with the math. So if you're struggling with the math this is the best app to go with. And the explanation section for the math problems is better than any other app!

Hi Keshaunaal, this app contains 90 official calculation-based practice questions taken from real PTCE exams. It's the only app that's been approved by the PTCB themselves. Pocket Prep's pharmacy technician exam prep app is a separate offering with different questions written by a completely different team. Please reconsider your review as it doesn't seem fair to punish this app by comparison. Thank you!
PCTB Study Guide
I wish I felt comfortable about this test but I don’t. I work in retail pharmacies where we actually never do compounding or IVs this is hard when you didn’t learn this stuff but your expected to pass a series of questions based off of your duties with these 2 sections being the most important.
