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.
