    I doubt they will let you take a study guide.

    I took part of the Medicare manual with me and it was allowed. I only took the piece on teaching because that is something I don't normally do.

    Good luck,

    Default E & M Reference material
    I am also looking for good reference material that helps to futher explain E & M coding. I am not taking an exam or anything, this is just one area that I could use some extra help with.

    I have seen several people reference the information on the Medicare website, but when I go to that website, I have trouble locating anything helpful.
    Thank you,

    Default Please check AAPC website
    Please go to the AAPC website and check the guidelines, regulations, requirements for your exam. The books you are officially allowed to have with you are listed there. The items you are prohibited from bringing are also listed.

    These guidelines changed recently. What was true when I took the test may no longer be true. Please go directly to AAPC for the correct information.
