This is great advice. I failed my 1st attempt at the CEMC and am scheduled to take it again and CoderGirl is right...some of the questions did not even ask for the level. This will save time in the end if you don't waste time reading the note first!I took reference material but did not need it either. I suggest NOT to read the medical note first!!! I suggest reading what the question is at the bottom of the note. A few times I caught myself reading the whole note and taking the time to "level" the note when they did'nt even want the level.
That really depends on your coding background. Most coders have taken some type of coding course to prepare for their exam, others do fine with just the coding books. Personally, with a college background in science, I was able to pass the exam by using the CPC study guide and the coding books only. The Practice Exams will help you with the exam format, as the actual test is very similar to the Practice Exams.Does the practice paper along with book is enough to prepare for exam.
