    There are hyperlinks beneath each section. I printed all of these materials when I took my exam (well, most of them. Some are thousands of pages so I printed the things I thought would be relevant).

    It is hard to know what to bring since you can essentially bring anything as long as it is not published references by HCCA or AAPC. I referenced all of the OIG Compliance Program Guidance resources so I strongly suggest that you bring those.

    ETA: forgot to say GOOD LUCK!!!

    Go to this webpage:
    https://www.aapc.com/training/cpco-m...resources.aspx

    Click on all of the tabs to open their drop-down menus. You will see blue hyperlinks that take you to material you can print and take into the exam with you.

    My 3 binders contain all of this material, with the exception of the 906 pages of text comprising the PPACA.

    Hello all!

    I got my results today and I passed on my 2nd attempt.

    I did take the online course, which was very informational, but didn't help as much for the exam. What I did find that was very beneficial were the links to each subject matter in the "Additional Preparation Methods - Medical Compliance Resources" section, that a few others have mentioned. The exam draws HEAVILY from the OIG Program Guidances. I was able to print out most reference materials and fit them in a 2" ring binder.

    Tips: Do no try to memorize the reference materials, because you won't...but be familiar with them. Organize your reference binder in a way that you can find your information quickly. Remember, you have an average time of 2 mins and 26 secs to read/answer each question. If you take 10 mins to answer each question, you won't finish. So, learn to manage your time properly.

    For all who are planning to take the exam, good luck!

    On AAPC's website click on the Education tab click on CPCO Exam Training scroll down to Additional Resources and click on Additional Preparation Methods then a listing of resources will appear. You can take these to the CPCO exam

    It looks like they've changed the approved material:
    Scroll to the bottom of this page:
    https://www.aapc.com/certification/cpco.aspx#tab-2

    Or look here:

    Do you think this is a disadvantage not having all the resources. I printed and put in books, but now see the allowed resources are only the 3 CPG's.

    This is wrong of AAPC to change the conditions of the exam for those of us who purchased under under the previous circumstances. Where was their notification of this change to those of us who have already purchased? Even so, we purchased under other conditions. I've emailed AAPC for an explanation, as well as my money back since the way in which I previously studied now makes me feel unprepared.

    I agree that is was wrong of AAPC. There should have been some notification of the changes. I called and spoke with the exams department and all I was told is that...it happens and the allowed references change. It does feel extremely unfair to those of us who purchased the exam in 2018, have been compiling resources then no longer allowed to use.
