    Default 1995 AND 1997 guidelines
    Make sure you understand BOTH 1995 and 1997 guidelines. Make sure you have BOTH audit tools available to you.

    Practice the scenarios on as he will also give you the answers with reasons.

    Good luck.

    Default Cemc exam
    If you did not take the Practicum it. Also, make sure you study up on Teaching Guidelines and know the ABN 131 form. All of that along with the 95 and 97 guidelines should have you set.

    Read the questions before you read the note, that way you don't waste time.

    Did anyone find them running out of time? What is the average time it should take per note?

    I just took (9/18/09) and passed the CEMC. I would say know Consults, teaching physician guidelines, and both sets of guidelines. I used the book The Art of E&M auditing book, which has both sets of guidelines in it and it was VERY useful. If you have any other questions please feel free to contact me at

    I'm happy to hear you passed. Heck of a test wasn't it? I was so glad when I passed, the whole time I was taking the exam I was thinking I do not want to do this again!
