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.

The book concludes with a 101-question post-test, each question being a real-world problem a technician might encounter in pharmacy practice.
