  1. Question Has anyone taken the CCC exam?

    I took the CCC exam in December 2008; it was only 75 questions at that time. When reading the coding scenerios dont over think them and remember to follow the coding rules, not how we code in the real world. There were a few "trick" questions. Know your cardiac physiology, anatomy, rhythm conduction order. Write as many notes as you can in you CPT book, that helped me alot.

    Good luck, I'm sure you will do great.

    I appreciate the reply! Is the test in sections or just random questions?

    I think the 2010 test is in sections. Did you buy the cardiology exam study guide? it covers everything cardiology.

    Yes, I did buy it and it's very helpful! Did you pass the first time? I passed the CPC the first time and said I'd never take another test!! Now I'm eating my words about taking another test. Sure hope I pass this one the first time.

    Hi again!

    Yes, thank God I passed both tests the first time! After taking the CCC I thought that would be the last exam but noooooo. I'm planning to obtain the CEMC.... lol

    Good luck on your exam!

    I would follow that do not over think the questions, I took the CCC exam 2 years ago and failed both times! I walked out both times confident that I passed and didnt, I am taking the exam again in a couple weeks and the study guides and information that they provide now are much much better then before! Good luck and definitley follow Dolores's advice!

    Thanks! I only have two days left before the exam and at this point there isn't much more I can do. I think I'm prepared but who knows! My plan is to study some tonight on E&M and device checks and Friday night simply review notes.
    Thanks and good luck to you,
    Susan

    I am currently taking a class for my CPC and I am not doing well. I bought the CCC course in March of this year, and never started the on line class. I have billed for a Cardiology Group for almost 8 years. Would you suggest I try the CCC certification and drop the CPC class? I just am not doing well in the class at all.
