PCAT Study Materials
This is the book I used to study for the PCAT. I highly recommend the Kaplan PCAT Study Guide.
PCAT (Pharmacy College Admissions Test) Flashcards, Premium Edition (PCAT Test Preparation). If you learn better using flashcard type of memorization this is a good option. This is a paperback book with 480 pages of study materials and practice problems. You can go online and take more practice problems and create your own flashcards.
Barron’s PCAT, 7th Edition: Pharmacy College Admission Test. If you need more study material in addition to the Kaplan PCAT Study Guide this Barron’s Review would be a good addition for more practice problems. This manual presents two full-length practice tests with questions answered and explained (400 pages). Also included are reviews of all test topics with additional practice questions and answers. Additionally, there is advice on how to get a higher PCAT test score, an explanation of how the test is scored, and an up-to-date directory of pharmacy colleges across the country. This book describes pharmacy training programs and gives advice on planning a pharmacy career.
Master the PCAT. Based on reviews some people actually like this PCAT prep book more than the Kaplan Guide. Peterson’s Master the PCAT offers the essential test prep for each of the exams on the PCAT: Writing (parts I and II), Verbal Ability, Biology, Chemistry, Reading Comprehension, and Quantitative Ability. Diagnostic test, with detailed answer explanations, to pinpoint strengths and weaknesses. Full-length practice test, with detailed answer explanations.
AudioLearn PCAT – A Complete Science Review of Biology, Chemistry, Organic Chemistry Concepts Tested on the Pharmacy College Admission Test! This is also a great option for those who learn differently. I personally did use this product and thought it was nice to have when I was driving in the car or riding the bus. This allowed me to study while on the go and helped me maximize my study time for the PCAT.
