Default What % do you need to pass?

I just took the exam on Saturday, 02/25/2012. I have 7 years of experience and took the remote coding course. I didn't feel that the test was harder than I thought it would be but it was not easy, either. It was a far cry from what I am used to doing since we work with EMR and the majority of the coding is done electronically. Anyway, I tend to worry too much so I probably did fine but I am curious what % is passing or how many you can get wrong.

70% is the lowest passing grade for the CPC exam. Good luck to you!!

I passed the first time. It was hard but multiple choice certainly helps.

I passed the first time and did much better than I could have even thought. I found that if you take the meyers mock exam beforehand it really helps alot but make sure you go over your wrong answers so you know the correct ones.

Default CPC exam

I was fortunate to pass on the first try, but only after taking both an introductory course and an advanced (exam prep) course. Also a lot of time studying at home.

Now I am wondering if I should take the exam right away? How does one get a job in coding when you don't have any experience? Everything I am seeing for job postings require at least 2 years experience, so I figured I should take the exam and pass that so I have something to show at an interview, if I am lucky enough to get one.

Smile Cindy, CPC

I passed the 1st time. Just try & relax, I think that is what gets most test takers. They are so over whelmed thinking about the clock they forget to just focus on the materail at hand. Gookluck
