I am a pharmacist from Turkey who is now living in Chicago, USA. I want to work here as pharmacist and trying to find out how.
I called NABP and got some information as the test system is changed and now it is computerised. The good news is we don`t have to wait for a whole year to get into this FPGEE exam but the bad news is, the computerized tests are always harder than the written ones. E.G.; the written tests are all same to all examinees but with computers , it asks you question according to your peprfomance the more you answer correctly, the harder it gets. As it is in GMAT nad GRE. Well, god bless all of us. I guess we need help. The books I may suggest as many of you did is ; 1-Compherensive pharmacy review (AMAZON, ECAMPUS(Actually prices are cheaper in ecampus and you don`t pay shipping fee))
2- Comphrensive pharmacy review practice exams, 3- FPGEE examination review by Rudman, 4- Pharmacology byr GOODMAN
5- Pharmacy review by APPlet.
I have a question many of you wrote about internships at pharmacy. I live here and I am on H-4. And without passing this FPGEE exam can I apply to pharmacies for intern if let`s say they get H-1 for me. Is it a must to do intern before and after I entre FPGEE or does it depend to state board of pharmacy? And also is there anyone out there who entered this exam before , I `d like to chat or talk with him/her.
