    AAPC: Back to School
    Passed on 1st. It was hard, but if you put in the time and studied hard, I'm sure you did just fine. Think positive and don't worry.

    So many people are working as a coder without certificate. This type of noncertified coders are for the fate of this job

    This is a new field for me. I went to school for this and I have taken the CPC exam twice without passing. I'm very discourged. My local chapter is in Buffalo, N.Y. and I'm trying to find one closer to me as I live in a remote area and Buffalo is 2 hours away. I'm concidering Corning as thats only 1 hour away. I live close to Dansville or Hornell. Anyone that lives in that area or knows about the chapter in Corning please let me know. Have you found out any results yet. My results was on AAPC web within a week. You did good, I'm sure. I have no leads on jobs and with no experience I feel that I don't have much of a chance. Good Luck

    I passed the first time. I got out of school, then took the test about 4 months later. I studied hard for about 1 1/2 months before the test.

    It was very hard and stressful. I ran out of time so I just picked an answer at random on about 10 0f them. I really didn't think I had passed, but I did.

    I didn't know if I wanted to go thru with it again if I hadn't passed, it was so hard.

    I now have to come up with 21 CEU's by Feb 2012. I only passed my test Nov 2010. I thought that was kind of unfair, I thought you would have 2 years to get CEUs. They said it depended on when your renewal date was up. So I am working hard to get them. I already have 6.

    Good luck, hope you pass. I got my results on line, here, 6 days after I took the test.

    I passed the CPC exam in the first attempt and did well. I did follow on the time.It was hard though as i had just finished my course from a local community college and i had no real world working experience. I am still looking for job openings. Hope that u pass...All the best for ur results..
