For those who took the CPCO what references did you take for the test? Did you take notes with you? How did you remember all the information?

Thank you,
Shannon

Shannon,

For the CPCO exam, any published references are allowed, except Study Guides and any published references by HCCA. I took a HUGE binder with dividers. Most of my material was from the Federal Registry. I did not take notes with me, but I did underline and highlight key points I believed would be important to know.

This page should help:

The test is tough. You need to have a concrete knowledge of the following:
- Healthcare Compliance Program History
- Compliance Program Guidance
- Key and other Risk Areas
- Fraud and Abuse Laws
- Other Laws and Regulations
- Investigations Process/Audits
- References and Resources

The online course is helpful.
The study guide is an excellent reference (you cannot use the study guide for the test.)

To study, I used an app called Brainscape to create my study note cards.

Do your best!

Scott Burk, MBA, CPCO
