I used the 6th Edition and just received my RN license in the mail recently. I passed on my first attempt. My friend did not pass on her first attempt, so I recommended she try this guide. There are updates in this version. I would recommend the 7th edition because the exam has been updated since the 6th edition.
I only studied for 1 month before the exam. I read at least ~75pgs a day (finished the book in ~15 days). I reread it again at a pace of ~100pgs a day (finished in ~10 days). I answered at least 75-100 questions a day on the online-exam component. I only achieved a 50-60% correct rating on the online exams. I found the 1000s of practice questions on the online component and the "pyramid points" essential to my success. The guide also came with an audio guides (in the 6th edition there was pharmacology, acid-base, electrolyte/fluids balances). Everyday, I would listen to the audio guides in the shower and while driving.
I would recommended studying longer than 1 month. I only had enough time because I was unemployed and spent hours a day studying. I felt rushed, and depressed if I didn't read/answer my daily amount of chapters or questions. I thought I was gonna fail to be honest.

best-selling book is fully updated to address the ever increasing demands on healthcare professionals to deliver high-quality patient care. A multitude of factors impinge on healthcare delivery today, including an ageing population, more sophisticated medicines, high patient expectation and changing health service infrastructure. Time demands on primary care doctors have caused other models of service delivery to be adopted across the world, leading to ongoing changes in the traditional boundaries of care between doctors, nurses, and pharmacists. Certain medical tasks are now being performed by nurses and pharmacists, for example prescribing. Healthcare policies to encourage patients to manage their own health have led to more medicines becoming available over the counter, allowing community pharmacists to manage and treat a wide range of conditions. Further deregulation of medicines to treat acute illness from different therapeutic areas seems likely. Government policy now encourages chronic disease management as a self-care activity, and could well be the largest area for future growth of reclassification of medicines. Pharmacists, now more than ever before, need to be able to recognise the signs and symptoms, and use an evidence-based approach to treatment.
Community Pharmacy is intended for all non-medical prescribers but especially for pharmacists, from undergraduate students to experienced practitioners.
