Pharmacy Exam Support

Fellow colleagues:

Unfortunately we have had to bite the bullet and study and then pass this time wasting exam. Myself and Dr. Mike Um have successfully passed both the written and oral exam on our first attempt. We are thankful to our many colleagues from BC and Alberta (in particular, Dr Mike Nowazek ND from Edmonton and Dr David Wikenheiser ND from Kelowna)  who shared with us their study secrets and facilitated our successful passing grade. Personally, after spending 40 hours trying to get my head around studying for such a ludicrous exam, I came to the conclusion after reviewing many materials, that the only way to study for this was for long term benefit. In other words, studying to know where to find the information.

In order to help our fellow colleagues we have permission from some of our other colleagues to share their works to help facilitate efficient learning to help you pass both exams (and then probably forget everything you learned!). I highly recommend you purchase Rx files online subscription and purchase a book as well ( If you study from this book and understand how it is set up it will be a tool that you can use for the rest of your life.

I personally purchased two new paper weights in the form of CTC 7 - Compendium of Therapeutic Choices, Seventh Edition and Basic & Clinical Pharmacology, 12th Edition. I referred to both of these twice in my 100+ hours of study time. Dr. Um has summarized the necessary areas from CTC 7 into comprehensive study notes. If you have purchased the book and would like these notes please email
