    I feel that the CPC test should be longer than 5 1/2 hour long, for the money that we pay we should have at lease 8 hour to complete, I also feel that it is so wrong for the CPC to retake the whole test when you only miss part of the test, we should be able to only take the part that we missed, $495.00 is a lot of money to use, when you have put so much hard work into the test, I feel that is unfair to all CPC. When will AAPC give something back to us, we spend too much money on the test to fail so easy, because you miss one or two part on the test, please revise the take over part, becaues it is ready unfair to the members.
    Thank you so much,
