    Default CCS-P Exam

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am planning to take CCS-P exam in near future.. Any advise about how to prepare for the test and how difficult that test was from CPC would be helpful.

    Thank you

    I prepared for the CCS-P with the study guide from AHIMA. There was also one other recommended book I used and for the life of me I cant remember the name. I took the practice quizzes and then printed them out to review what I got wrong. pay close attention to RVU's and Fee schedules for participating and non-participating physicians. Know these formulas in memory. Also, on my exam I had quite a few scenarios involving chemotherapy coding. I took it in July of 2009 and passed and it was a great learning experience. GOOD LUCK
