The CCS test is very different from the CPC exam. The test is 2 parts. Part 1 is multiple choice but you cannot use any books or reference materials. The second part of the exam is coding actual cases. You can use your CPT, ICD-9 and a medical dictionary. You have to read the reports and code all the CPTs and ICD-9 codes. You are graded on the correct number of codes you assign. It is true that you do not have to use modifiers or E-codes in part 2 if you are taking the CCS-P exam. Hope this helps!
