The Most Comprehensive, Multimedia Pharmacy Review Guide Structured to Parallel NAPLEX Content

Capstone Pharmacy Review enables pharmacy students to thoroughly prepare for the North American Pharmacist Licensure Examination (NAPLEX).

It addresses key competencies such as preparation and dispensing of medications, pharmacotherapy considerations, and drug information, with review material correlating to the topic’s importance in the exam.

Each new copy of Capstone Pharmacy Review includes an online access code for the interactive web-based program Navigate TestPrep: Capstone Pharmacy Review. Repeatable and customizable to the student’s needs, the online Navigate TestPrep program offers case-based questions for exam practice, valuable rationales with remediation to the text and competencies, detailed reporting, and a timed exam to simulate the real-world testing environment.
