How do our NAPLEX & MPJE reviews help?
Take a look on our website at the page titled “YOUR ENROLLMENT INCLUDES.” Listed are the topics that we cover, and the resources that we provide.
What kinds of things must you be familiar and comfortable with?
Here are a couple of sample exercises. You need to be proficient with questions like these.
SAMPLE PHARMACY CALCULATIONS PROBLEM:
How many milliliters of water need to be mixed with 80% v/v alcohol to make 400 mL of 50% v/v alcohol?
- Less than 40
- Between 40 and 80
- Between 80 and 120
- Between 120 and 160
- Greater than 160
Calculating the answer:
400 mL x 50% = V x 80%
V = 250 mL of 80% alcohol is needed to achieve the total amount of alcohol that is contained within 400 mL of 50% alcohol
Since the final product volume is 400 mL and 250 mL of 80% alcohol is needed to make this product:
400 mL – 250 mL = 150 mL of water “needs to be added”
