hi, I've just graduated from U.S. Career Institute with a GPA of 95%. I have been reading everyone's replys about the exam. This is something I plan on doing soon,but I have to say you all have made me a little bit nervous. When I decided to be a medical coder as my career,I was told this was in high demand and you could be certified or non-certified,now it seems everyone wants you to be certified. Any pointers from any one? Most all of you are saying the test is sooo hard. Could someone being fresh out of school be able to pass this test? I am looking for a job in medical coding and now I'm not sure if anyone even hires a non-cerified coder. I hope I did'nt make the wrong choice for my career. I would be greatful for any in-put.Hi, everyone
Just found out that I passed my test. I took it 5/17/08 in Cookeville, TN. This was my second try, so glad I passed. Good luck to you all that have no yet found out.
