    Good luck on your test! I passed the first time but I really thought I failed. At that time we only got 5hrs for the exam and I finished my last question at the 5hr mark. When I went online to see my results I saw pass so I have no idea what my score is. I definitely don't think I could take it again and pass it was really hard.

    Good Luck on your upcoming Exam. As long as you study your Study Guide, your pratice Online Exams, you will do fine. Do the easy ones first and then start working on the operative reports which are longer, when you see the report is so long, just take out the main words what the patient was seen for. It's mutliple choice so that makes it easier to choose your answers. The only downfall it's time, time is essence every questions give you 2 minutes if you stuck move on to the next one and come back to that one later. Sometimes we just have to guess.

    So once again good luck and I pray you going to do fine.

    You can opt to subscribe to a coding tool website that has the same info as the books. Our practice only has one set of books (we have 4coders), but we each have a subscription to the online tool. The updates are automatic on the site we use. I am not sure if I am allowed to say the name of the company on here. But, maybe search online for them & just make sure the one you find is legit. The one we use is the Expert version of ICD-9, so it is identical to my book. In fact, the company that we subscribe through publishes the books as well. I like it, it's pretty quick unless the internet is slow at the time. You can type in a diagnosis or procedure code & search,or you can start with the index,just like you would do with the book. It's very helpful!

    WOW ... after reading all the other posts I'm embarrassed to say I failed. I just ran out of time & didn't finish the test. Which REALLY hurt my score! However, my wait to find out was not long. I took the test on a Saturday & if I'm not mistaken I believe my results were posted on that following Wed or Thu. The upside is, I know exactly what to expect next time & hopefully will be better prepared.

    Took my exam and did not pass the first time. Got a 54. Was a very hard test and time is a factor. Taking a prep class tomorrow to help with the retake test for next Saturday. Everyone has told me this is a good prep class to take. Sure hope I do well this time !

    Default Passed!
    I took the test for the first time on 11/19/2011 and found out online here that I passed on 11/23/2011 (was very surprised at the quick turnaround time for results).

    Walking in to the exam I could feel how stressed everyone was about the test. I think that if you know your stuff (terminology, guidelines & how to use your book) that passing boils down to how good of a test taker one actually is. I came across the following post in another section of the forum earlier and found it very interesting:

    Good luck to those waiting to take/re-take the exam!
