there are many questions in Q&A book having brand names (commercial) in questions asking side effects and indication of drugs by brand names
Do we have to memorize these brand names that are mentioned?
or they give us the generic name in exam????
please advice...

Its hard to memorize the drugs to start memorizing thr brand names also:doh:

no brand name at all..
You will not been asked for even generic or individual names
they ask about the whole group of drugs..
Very few names are in the test..

No problem Cherry
the majority of questions -for me- were like this
in the question they give like 3 or more info about a familiar topic
so when you read it you 'll feel happy but ...
then they ask an indirect question
the choices 1 is totally wrong, not even relate dto the topic, 1 totally not seen before and two are so perfect that you spent your time try to find out which one is the right one
sometimes they put terms that does not even exist.
what i meant they gave you all the information you knew from cpr in the question then they ask about something more advanced..
Good luck
