This is a question for those who have taken and passed the CDEO exam. Would you please share the sources/materials you used to study for this certification? I want to take advantage of the half price exam but the study guide/training course keeps getting pushed back and I don't want to take a 5+ hour test "cold turkey" so to speak. Thank you!

CDEO prep

Hello there. I am interested in learning what you did to prepare for the CDEO. I am a CPC (took the exam last year), I took the CDEO online course and practice exams but I missed it by 10 points. I test again in a month and have been studying the CPMA study guide as I didn't feel the online CDEO course prepared me at all. The practice exams however are very reflective of the real exam, in my opinion.

Hello I'd be interested in what you used to study for the exam. I know there is a course but can't really afford to fork over that kind of money. Still waiting for the non existing study guide. So any help would be appreciated.

It is a really tough exam. I did pass it the first time, but barely....I think they really need to get a study guide for this exam....I did the online course and printed off the materials that went with it and went back through the harder sections of the online course a second time.

AAPC are not planning on making a study guide available for the CDEO for some strange reason. Perhaps if enough people requested it they would consider it.

There's clearly a need, more so if the online course is not of a high enough quality. I really don't understand why they created a certification but can't provide sufficient resources to help people grasp the concepts and successfully pass the exam.

I'm going to take the exam some time this year because my company is purchasing the package for the course, online exams, and the test but I'm wondering if the course itself is worth the money.

Hi Schuyler,

If you are still willing to share, I would appreciate more information about how you prepared for the CDEO, including the reference you used, if you found it helpful.

Thank you!

Hi Carol...which sections did you consider to be the harder ones of the online course?

For me, I reviewed the topics that I was least familiar with. For example, I mainly code cardiology, so I didn't focus on it as much as I did others. Some chapters seemed brief and I didn't feel really covered all they should. For those I tried to particularly brush up on the guidelines in the ICD 10 for the particular section...I used a lot of high lights and wrote a bunch of notes in my books. Good luck.

CDEO exam/course

This course is very insufficient to prepare you for the exam. There was a lot of material on the exam that they didn’t cover. Also, there are a lot of errors, misspellings, and contradictions in the course. The first certification exam that I took had an erroneous question/answer on it. I’m extremely frustrated with AAPC over this.

CDEO Exam

I agree the course didn't cover a lot that was on the exam. I also had an error on one of the questions on my exam. I wrote a comment about it in the comment section of the exam. I don't think AAPC should have offered this certification until they were prepared to provide the study materials that would cover the questions on the exam.
