Official PTCB Practice Exams

Official PTCB Practice Exams are designed to familiarize candidates with the Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam® (PTCE®). PTCB's newest Official Practice Exam for 2020 is built to the content outline of the updated PTCE that launched in January 2020. PTCB also continues to offer last year's Practice Exam for those previously authorized to take the prior version of the PTCE.

Unlike practice exams from other providers, Official PTCB Practice Exams have the same look, feel, and functionality as the actual PTCE. This allows you to become familiar with the real exam experience before test day.‚Äč
