The FPGEE (Foreign Pharmacy Graduate Equivalency Examination®) is the tallest hurdle for graduates of foreign pharmacy schools who wish to practice in the United States. With a pass rate that is under 60%, the FPGEE is a daunting 5½ hour, 250-question exam that tests a wide range of knowledge in four major areas of pharmacy education:

  • • Basic biomedical sciences (21%)
  • • Pharmaceutical sciences (29%)
  • • Social/behavioral/administrative pharmacy sciences (15%)
  • • Clinical sciences (35%)

Preparing for the FPGEE by reviewing all the material from each of your pharmacy school courses can be overwhelming. A far better approach is to study only the information most relevant to the exam, with the key points summarized in abbreviated bullet format. That’s exactly what The APhA Complete Review for the FPGEE, 2nd Edition contains.

Completely revised an updated, the second edition of The APhA Complete Review for the FPGEE® is a one-stop compilation of pharmacy knowledge and serves as a premier resource for successfully passing the FPGEE on your journey being eligible to take the NAPLEX and MPJE exams, and becoming a licensed pharmacist in the U.S.
