iMCQ for Pharmacists is a large database of multiple choice questions to help pharmacy students prepare for the PEBC examinations (Pharmacy Examining Board of Canada). The questions written are intended to cover all seven NAPRA (National Association of Pharmacy Regulatory Authorities) competencies you must know to successfully pass the PEBC examinations. The questions have been written by several pharmacists and reviewed by a pan-Canadian pharmacy panel. A digital clock that will keep track of your time while answering the questions.
The multiple choice questions prepared are NOT intended to replace your studying but to complement your studying and test your knowledge. New topics are added on a regular basis. While every attempt has been made to cover a large number of topics, not every therapeutic topic is covered.
There is also a prep exam of 150 randomly selected questions with a 3 hour time limit. The prep test can be taken any number of times. Each time you take the prep test another selection of questions is selected.
NOTE: there is no automatic renewal. If you want to subscribe for a longer period of time, you must go into iMCQ and renew through Paypal.
There are many topics covering the seven NAPRA competencies. Besides many therapeutic topics, there are topics including jurisprudence, ethics, drug distribution, team work and pharmacy management.
Once you select a topic by clicking on it, you will have two chances to answer each question. If your answer is incorrect on the second attempt, the correct answer will appear. The correct answer will appear usually with an explanation and / or reference. If a reference does not appear, it is intended to make you find the reference explanation yourself. NAPRA competency #4 (Drug, Therapeutic and Practice Information) requires you to find evidence based information on your own.
The results of each subject area are tabulated on your dashboard to help you identify your strengths and weaknesses.
This is a hard question to answer since PEBC does not publish past multiple choice questions. Based on the sample questions provided on the www.pebc.ca website, our iMCQ questions are very similar to those on the PEBC. Of course, some questions are easy and others are more difficult. Some questions are case-study based; other questions are not.
Based on emails we receive, iMCQ has helped many pharmacy students prepare for the PEBC.
The iMCQ dashboard will help track your progress. You can determine which subject areas need more work. A bar graph will tabulate your results and let you know what subject areas you need to work on.
We are not sure what other countries test on their licensing examinations. The therapeutics questions should be the same or very similar as in other countries, however the jurisprudence questions will definitely be different. Other competencies may not be tested in other countries.
The answer to this question is different for everyone. Everyone has different study habits. Some people prefer to study alone, others like to study with others. For tips and suggestions to help you with studying and resources, please see our blog at www.agrohealth.com/blog
