This revised fifth edition maintains and enhances the features that made the previous four best-selling and highly acclaimed editions (formerly entitled Strauss's Pharmacy Law and Examination Review) so popular among pharmacy law faculty, students, and candidates for pharmacist licensing examinations.
The book's extensive editorial contents and multiple-choice review questions accurately mirror the subjects and format of the Multistate Pharmacy Jurisprudence Examination™ (MPJE™) and state law pharmacist licensing examinations.
The editorial matter reflects the need for new and expanded information to keep abreast of legal and regulatory developments.
Further, the addition of new and revised graphics and tabulations are intended to focus on important facets of law and retention of the topic.
"For the students, it is a well-documented, readable, and easily understood review of the course materials covered in the classroom. Teachers should find the publication of substantial value in presenting material to their classes, particularly the section dealing with controlled substances."
-Journal of Pharmacy Technology
"This volume will be an extremely useful tool for any student or pharmacy practitioner who is preparing to take the MPJE."
-Legal Publishing Preview
"…The book has useful potential and should not be overlooked in the pharmacy law professor's assessment of student resources for learning or reviewing a significant part of curricular competencies in pharmacy education." -American Journal of Pharmaceutical Education
