NYP - Columbia pharm exam

U.S.A. New York


Hi guys!

Hope to find some help here. Ill be taking the pharm exam for NYP Columbia this thursday. Any inputs? Ive been reading discussions about it, but they were old and what theyre talking about is a complete opposite of what i was told. Is it true that they give u a list of drugs to study? They only gave me like 5 sample questions, and 5 other websites for dosage calculations. Anyone took the test recently? How was it? I dont want to worry too much but they talk about NYP (cornell or columbia) pharm exam very widely on the forums. So im starting to feel a little nervous myself.

Anyways, hope to find sone helpful response.

Hey! sorry hope this doesnt reach you too late. Yes, calculators are allowed. No study guide, but they give you website where you can review for the math part. and sample questions.

Pm me for more info.

I am scheduled to take it in Sept...what about you?? they did recommend prentice hall pharmacology reviews and rationals...it's a 600 page book!!! Glad calcs are allowed!! keep me posted and I'll do the same...I spoke to people that have taken it recently and they said they focus alot on classifications..side effects and calculations..,.there are 2 parts and you must score 80% on both to pass!!
