    Hi Kim

    I have taken the exam twice and have failed twice.This test is very intense.. My examines only had about 3 to 4 E/M coding question. I study for 3months and all I can say it was hard,,,,51 operative reports mix in with e/m coding, but some of the operative reports were three to four pages long!! So timing is another issue with this test. I plan on taking the exam again but I am really studying my tendons and my nerves and other ways of wording the anatomy.

    best wishes!
