WASHINGTON, DC, July 1, 2014 – The American Pharmacists Association (APhA) today released the fourth edition of Complete Math Review for the Pharmacy Technician. The textbook covers every topic related to pharmacy calculations that a pharmacy technician needs to know.

With more than 100 advance practice questions new to the fourth edition, the book contains 850 exercises spread throughout its 13 chapters, with answer key/solutions in the back.

Other features of this popular book are an Advanced Practice section at the end of each chapter, and a chapter titled “Medication Errors and Clinical Challenges,” which tests readers’ ability to recognize medication calculation errors sometimes made by nurses, pharmacists, and physicians. The book concludes with a 101-question post-test, each question being a real-world problem a technician might encounter in pharmacy practice.
