Official PTCB Practice Exam

The Official PTCB Practice Exam is designed to familiarize candidates with the Pharmacy Technician Certification Examination® (PTCE®). The Official PTCB Practice Exam is the only practice exam authorized by PTCB. PTCB offers two different Practice Exam versions and each is built to the same content specifications as the PTCE. The newest version was released on September 1, 2017.

The Practice Exam is priced at $29 each, or at the discount price of $49 for both versions. Educators and employers will benefit from offering technicians the extra practice of two practice exams through the package discount.

Unlike practice exams from other providers, the Official PTCB Practice Exams have the same look, feel, and functionality as the actual PTCE. This allows candidates to become familiar with the real exam experience in advance of test day.​
