Asked a question last year

Has anybody bought the ASHP/PTCB Combo? If so do you recommend?

Where am I?

In PTCB Community you can ask and answer questions and share your experience with others!

Too expensive. Techs don't make enough

I did in February/March when they offered a special pricing for the combo. The ASHP material is very thorough and prepared me for the PTCB exam. The exam was difficult. Study the USP Chapter 797 and 800.

I did not because I took the CSPT exam before that was an option.  It seems a bit pricey for those of us who have practical experience.

I did not purchase the combo, but saving $219 would be an incentive for some who are seeking the C.S.P.T. without employer assistance.  I am not familiar with other online programs that offer the C.S.P.T. program, but $525 seems somewhat lower to what others may cost; not to mention, if you can get employer assistance to help pay for it.
