Going Back to School!

Well, sort of. I found out that I don't actually have to take a college course to be a Pharmacy Technician. All I have to do is take the test. So here's my idea. I'm going to purchase the textbook and go through the entire thing, as if I were actually in class. But I can do it at my leisure, and not have to leave the house for work. Then once I've completed it, depending on how I feel about the material, I will either purchase the study book for the test, or take the test. If I don't pass it the first time, I will look into taking the course at the local community college. If I do pass it, and get my certificate, then I will have plenty of time to put applications in at all our pharmacies, and, since I'll still be working my current job, I'll have the ability to pick the right offer with the right hours and benefits. I can choose because I won't have to take the first job offered to me! How's that for a plan??

Sounds great! My suggestions would be to also "test" yourself on each chapter...come up with,or if the book has them, questions for every chapter..not just easy ones! and try and answer them without looking them up.. It is a great way to just review in general.

GOOD LUCK!

Sounds like a wonderful plan Naddya. Keep me posted to how your coming along with the material. You sound recharged and ready to go!! I'm happy that you're looking into another career. Walking as much as you do....and the danger involved......its just too much!!

I'm so happy for you!!! Good Luck!!!

Thanks, guys! I'm excited about this too! I drug out my old Medical Terminology book and I'm starting to review some of the stuff in there, because I'm sure I'll be needing some of it.

what is Med term like anyways? I am going to be taking that in the fall along with Anatomy and Physiology 1, Intro to humanities, and Developmental Psychology. By the way Good luck with everything! I have a huge test comming up to get in to my program that I am shooting for to going in to. It is called the TEAS test. Dont ask me what it stands for but it has basic things in the test, including English, reading, math and science. I am so nervous and I have never really taken a 3 and a half hour test in ONE shot! I am planning to get the study guide either this week or next week. ANyways once again good luck with everything!!!!

Med Term is mostly memorizing root words and stuff. I got a 4.0 in it. Flash cards will help. Good luck with the big test!
