Details: Product Description The APhA Complete Review for the FPGEE provides a comprehensive review of basic pharmaceutical principles (dosage forms, math, bio-pharmaceutics, kinetics, basic and parenteral compounding, among others); the basic medical sciences (chemistry, biochemistry, physiology, anatomy, pharmacology, microbiology, and immunology); social and administrative sciences (practice management, pharmacoeconomics, biostatistics, health care systems, etc.); and the clinical sciences (basic therapeutics, communication skills, etc.). These topics are all included in the Foreign Pharmacy Graduate Equivalency Examination. Graduates of foreign pharmacy schools must pass this examination before proceeding to the NAPLEX and licensure in the United States. Review This book is also a satisfactory representation of a U.S. college or school of pharmacy's curriculum. It can clearly be an aid to anyone preparing for the FPGEE. However, because of its comprehensive nature and the inclusion of convenient, concise appendices, it also may be valuable to those preparing for the NAPLEX, or serve as a reference tool for practicing pharmacists. The text's in-depth social, behavioral, and administrative pharmacy sciences section may prove to be exceptionally helpful to those preparing for the FPGEE as it is thorough and comprehensive coverage of what is typically the most difficult for graduates of foreign pharmacy schools to master. --Fadi M.
