NORTH RICHLAND HILLS, Texas (PRWEB) October 10, 2014
While teaching pharmacy technicians on the weekend, author Anne Nguyen realized that it is so hard for students to memorize the brand and generic names of top 300 drugs. Thus, she creates crossword puzzles and word search to help students memorize and recognize the medication names when taking the board exam. This learning technique will require students to think and search for answers by using the Pharmacy Review Manual textbook.
“PTCB Crosswords Puzzles and Word Search” (Pharmacy Technician Certification Board) includes exercises designed to help students memorize the top 300 drugs with their drug classifications. It covers more than 40 different categories of drugs that will help pharmacy technician students to pass the National Certified Pharmacy Board Exams by allowing them to apply what they learned from this workbook.
This textbook goes hand in hand with the Pharmacy Technician Review Manual. When students have difficulty with the crossword puzzles, it will prompt them to research in the Review Manual for the correct answers. Crossword puzzles have shown to be very successful in helping students retain their learning materials and long-term knowledge, creating a positive outcome in the exam. These crossword puzzles and word searches are perceived as recreational activities, making the memorization of the medications more enjoyable and easier to learn.
Crossword puzzles and word searches are by far the most effective style of learning for most students. They can help students build confidence when it is time to take the exam and help them to retain the information long after they have become certified technicians. Students who use the “PTCB Crosswords Puzzles and Word Search Workbook” and attend the preparation classes will have a greater chance of passing the Board Exam. The ultimate determination for passing the exam depends on the students’ time spent studying and memorizing these top 300 drugs.
