Do you think it is useful in the exam to work as pharmacy technician, because I work in a pharmacy and I don't know should I continue or not? How much is it useful?
Please need help.

Hi! From my experience, it is very helpful to start as a pharm tech. I learned the drugs names and also some of the questions in the fpgee involves drug interactions which some of them I have encountered while typing prescriptions. It would be easier too when you start your internship because the store you are working with can just promote you.

Hi! You need to apply and take the PTCB exam (Pharmacy Technician Certification Board) and be certified by them. After you got your certificate, you will have to apply for pharmacy technician license to CA board of pharmacy. I post the link for PTCB site.
