The process begins here:

For knowing what the exam's contents are, it is best to follow the exam guidelines:

There are also plenty of study resources:

I would also highly recommend the book: Mosby's Review for the PTCE.

Amazon has some books you can get to help you study. I would recommend a Pharm Tech math book at the very least. But there are some good books out there. Look up Pharmacy Technician books or PTCE. Also, if you haven't looked at the resource list on PTCB.org35  that's a good place to start as well.
