My dear fellow FPGEE takers ,please allow me put this advice forward for you so you can pass and not regret not doing your best to pass : 1- While studying in preparation to take the FPGEE, " NEVER TOTALLY RELY ON " resources that " brief " what you studied in Pharmacy college along five long years , because the FPGEE is designed to measure your ability to act as pharmacists , especially problem solving , in the multitude of different situations in real life in which you are supposed to be with your patients , not your ability to just PASS , because if you passed such examination and even the next ( NAPLEX ) without bearing inside the spirit of a " RESPONSIBLE and RELIABLE " health care professional , you are fast to encounter a situation while on the job that can lead to your hardly earned license being lost or at least suspended . 2- Be honest and true to yourself while studying , and most important , put yourselves in the patient's shoes ; we , as pharmacists , are supposed to make their pain and sufferings less , protect them as much as we can from the harm they may get from side effects , wrong prescription , self-applied medications ,incompliance and the multitude of drug interactions which neither they nor their physicians may pay attention to , and that's why you should always ask yourself this important question before taking the FPGEE ; AM I READY TO BE THAT RELIABLE AND RESPONSIBLE HEATH CARE PROFESSIONAL ..OR ..NOT YET ??...and the more you do your best ,while studying , to be that reliable professional , the more you can be sure to pass the FPGEE with ease . 3- STUDY FROM SCRATCH as if you have just enrolled as a student in pharmacy school , review everything you studied however little or seemingly unimportant , because a pharmacist is non but a bank of information for patients and the last health care professional they consult before being left alone with their medications to take and get benefited ..or harmed . 4- While studying , always contrive questions in the form you are to encounter in the FPGEE ( it will sharpen your wits and help make all information ready and available always in your memory , for the examination , and for your practice after you get your license ) 5- TAKE YOUR TIME and never rush to take the first appointment available ; you are not supposed to pass the FPGEE as a " student " but as a pharmacist who is familiar with ,and an EXPERT in, pharmacy practice , and remember , we are not supposed to pass the FPGEE just to obtain a license , but to practice as reliable , competent , and efficient health care professionals , and the more you put that in your mind before taking the FPGEE , the more you are likely to predict the questions and the problems you will be asked to solve in that important examination and be able to pass it with ease .
