BCPP Practice Test – Board Certified Psychiatric Pharmacist

BCPP Practice Test

The field of pharmacy is rapidly expanding into areas of specialization. One of those critical areas in pharmacy practice is psychiatry. Becoming a Board Certified Psychiatric Pharmacist can give you an extra edge on jobs in this field as well as help you enhance your clinical pharmacy skillset. Preparation tools for this exam are scarce. We’ve enlisted the help of Board Certified Psychiatric Pharmacists and followed the content outline to develop the Meded101 Board Certified Psychiatric Pharmacist practice test. The BCPP practice test is one of our latest creations as we have a long track record of creating useful content for pharmacists who are seeking board certification in various areas. If you’d like to see some of our testimonials on some of our previous products, feel free to check them out here. 

The BCPP practice exam is designed to give BCPP candidates a helpful tool in their preparation for passing the BCPP exam. Our BCPP practice test is the exact length of the actual exam (175 questions) so you will get a sense of what this exam is actually like. In addition, we’ve tried to mimic the difficulty and format of the BCPP exam. There is a good variety in the difficulty of the practice exam with some being easier and other questions being more difficult. The BCPP practice questions are multiple-choice in format with one answer and four possible choices. Rationales are included with the answers with the practice test broken up into 4 sections (approximately 40-45 questions per section). You are able to take the exam sections multiple times if desired.

I cannot thank you enough – very much appreciated- the charts / tests and slides had a huge impact on my passing the BCPS. Your site made a huge difference and is very well organized. I really feel you covered the areas Pharmacology, Regulatory, and Biostatistics very well.

I would like to say thank you for your BCPS study material. Having practiced as a pharmacist for just over 10 years in Australia, I have always try to keep myself up-to-date with current guidelines, the latest evidence, and clinical knowledge. However, having failed twice previously, I needed guidance that is succinct and focused on pharmacotherapy and pharmacy practice in the US context – your study material provided exactly that. I have done basic biostatistics post-graduate and your stat study guide was a good revision for me (especially the table showing an overview of important statistical tests). I think your recently-added regulatory study guide was what really pushed me over the pass mark – that 32-page was enough for me to understand the important roles each organization plays in the US healthcare system.

I purchased both courses from ASHP and ACCP. Your questions give the material from ACCP a run for its money, inasmuch as you present valid, valuable clinical information.

I was surprised by the ease it took me to understand the key concepts while reviewing your BCPS study guide. It was very reader-friendly and well written. For someone like me who has not had enough exposure to statistics, let alone biostatistics, it was of tremendous value.
