Diabetes Cheat Sheet ($19)

Our diabetes cheat sheet is 7 sweet, sweet pages that distill candy mountain levels of essential diabetes information. It makes studying for the NAPLEX (or going on rounds) a breeze. You'll get a comprehensive chart of every insulin (including PK, dosing, storage, and more), a chart of all oral combo drugs, renal/hepatic adjustments, clinical pearls for all drugs, A1c goals (for both ADA and AACE) and treatment considerations, DKA vs HHS, how to treat hypoglycemia, drug interactions, and a metric crap-ton of other stuff (not an actual unit of measurement).

MPJE Cheat Sheet ($19)

Here's what you do. Print this bad-boy out. Grab the state law book for whatever MPJE you're studying for, and answer all of the questions on the sheet. Make sure to have plenty of wine on hand, because this is not fun. Once you've filled out (and memorized) everything, you'll be more than ready for your MPJE. Literally any MPJE. You can even use it for the law portion of the CPJE (but in full disclaimer, you will need more than this cheat sheet to pass the CPJE. No worries though! We wrote this article to help you out).

Use this cheat sheet for any state law test, and re-use it as many times as you like. It's yours forever, and it stay relevant (because even if the specific details of the MPJE questions vary between state to state and year to year, the TYPES of questions asked are very similar).

You'll get dose conversions for all statins (stratified by low, moderate, and high intensity), renal and hepatic dose adjustments, clinical/monitoring pearls, pregnancy considerations, a simple algorithm that tells you who to treat (and what to treat them with), drug interactions, comprehensive product/dosing/indication guides (including all EIGHT(!) brands of fenofibrate), a quick and dirty guide to PCSK-9 inhibitors, omega 3 content of various fish and fish oil products, and more. Almost every one of your patients is on a statin...this sheet will help you.

These 3 pages contain basically everything you need to know about anticoagulants and antiplatelet medications. You'll get common dosing (by indication), dosage adjustments for renal and hepatic failure, drug interactions, reversal agents, hold times for procedures, pregnancy category, basic pharmacology, relevant clinical pearls, and a whole lot more. 

Use this sheet to ace your next exam (or to prep for the NAPLEX). Add it to your peripheral brain (or hang it up on the wall at your practice site) as a quick and handy reference. If you work with anticoagulants and antiplatelets (and that's all of us), you're going to want this cheat sheet.

Unleash your inner chemo rockstar with this cheat sheet that tells you everything you need to know about chemotherapy for the NAPLEX. This thing packs a ton of information into a single page. You'll get dose limiting toxicities, renal and hepatic dosage adjustments, emetogenic potenial, likelihood of hair loss, infusion reactions, and much more.

You don't have to feel like oncology is a subject best left to wizards and sorcerers. This cheat sheet organizes chemo in a systematic and easy to understand way that's helpful whether you're a student or a practicing pharmacist. 

 

HIV Cheat Sheet ($4)

 This cheat sheet packs a ton of useful (read: testable) information in a single page. Pre-treatment requirements, CrCl cutoffs, notable adverse effects, which PIs must be boosted, which drugs are safe in pregnancy, drug interactions (including contraindications with statins and acid suppressing agents), what drugs need to be taken with food, and more.

You could basically call this sheet “HIV drug trivia likely to show up on the NAPLEX.” Or if you're in practice, it could be "How to not screw up the HAART meds for every patient that comes into your hospital or pharmacy."

 

Interview Mastery: The tl;dr pharmacy Guide to Interview Questions ($15)

Interview Mastery is different than every other list of "Top 25 Job Interview Questions" that you've seen out there.

We combined the interview question banks from as many job sources (inpatient and outpatient) that we could get our hands on (we have friends in high places). We distilled them down to 30 key questions. These 30 questions are used in every interview imaginable (from residency all the way up to clinical specialist). For each question, we break down the question behind the question (i.e. the "real" question the interviewer is asking you). Then, we give guidance on how to develop your answer. We even give you an evaluation rubric to practice and grade yourself.

A good interview is the difference between a fulfilling job and an impersonal "We'll keep your application on file" email. Make sure you're prepared for your next one.
