I have took The exam in August but I didn’t pass it, I thought I did well on the exam but I missed it by a a few points. This is and was a difficult test but I’m taking it again soon. I’ve studied the work book, I’ve done the practice test but when it comes to the real test it touches on clinicals that I’m not familiar with, like cancer drugs, I work in ob/gyn. It’s a lengthy test and needs full attention. I hope you all pass it the first time but if not continue until you do because that is what I plan to do. I think I was complacent and expected to pass the first time and I was upset with myself but we all must continue to try and we will make it.

How were the case study on the exam? any tips on an easier way to determine the e/m?

I would suggest you start from the back. I just passed the CPCO and found it very beneficial to start from the back.

hi I took the test in june and passed after failing two times, its a very difficult test. what I did, I did the section with the laws and the matter of fact questions, I saved the cases till the end, just make sure you know the laws. I studied through aapc, and I made index cards. don't get discouraged, good luck

yes, they are very similar try and leave the cases for last, I did all the rules and regulations, laws etc. rule out two answers then focus on the two that are left, make sure you know the laws- good luck

Thanks for all of your answers and suggestions, I will study the laws and regulations more and if I don't pass this time I will try again.
