Question of the Day: PTCB
If you are studying to become a pharmacy technician, a crucial step is to receive your pharmacy technician certification. The Pharmacy Technician Certification Board regulates these certifications, which means you must pass an exam that proves you meet this regulatory board’s exacting standards. You’re studying hard to learn everything you need to know, but you’re worried about the exam before you receive your certification. That’s why Varsity Tutors’ Learning Tools offers many study options for your PTCB certification, including Question of the Day.
Question of the Day is one of the great ways through Varsity Tutors’ Learning Tools to cultivate a daily test practice to prepare for your Pharmacy Tech exam. This question changes every day of the week, so you get fresh material to work on all the time. These questions are based on past versions of the PTCB exam, so you will not only get used to answering multiple-choice questions relevant to pharmacy technician work, but you will also be able to learn more about how this board phrases the questions on their exam. This is very helpful in helping you overcome fear about an unfamiliar exam scenario – if you work with brand new questions all the time, then you will feel more confident in your knowledge and your ability to think on your feet.
One of the great features of PTCB Question of the Day is the timer. This feature times how long you take to answer the question, then shows you how many seconds and/or minutes you spent on the answer page. You don’t have to answer Question of the Day within a time limit, but you can use this timer to recall relevant information faster and answer correctly in a shorter period of time. When you see how long you spend answering hard questions, as well, you can better direct your daily test review sessions toward information that you are not confident about yet.
On the answer page, you can see whether you answered Question of the Day correctly or not. Even better, you can track how many correct and incorrect questions you answered in this past, and that can help guide your PTCB test review to tougher areas. You can also watch yourself improve as you answer more and more questions correctly – and if you like healthy competition, you can see how well you are doing on the Pharmacy Tech questions compared to other students who are also answering PTCB Question of the Day in order to prepare for their certification exam.
With an explanation of the correct answer at the bottom of the page, you can also learn something new about the information that will be on your PTCB exam. This explanation might illuminate why certain terms are used or practices performed, and that is helpful not only for earning your PTCB certification, but to helping patients in the future.
