    I am taking the CCC in june- do you think the test was harder than expected or easier? Also what kind of cases did they have?

    I guess it was about what I expected with the exception of the amount of E&M and NP questions. The op reports were what you would expect, Caths, Stents, etc. There were a lot of stress and echo questions. It covered all topics. Good luck to you and let me know how you do!

    Yes, the exam was 5 hours 40 minutes and 150 questions just like the CPC. I didn't take any special course just studied what I had and purchased the practice test.

    Did you use an extra reference book that they say is allowed for Specialty Exams? And if so, what did you use?

    No I didn't use anything else. I took some charts to show locations of arteries etc. but I didn't use them.

    I bought a book from CSI Coding Strategies, Inc. called CSI Navigator For Invasive Cardiology 2010 Edition. It covers Cardiac Caths, Coronary Procedures, Peripheral Angio, and Peripheral Interventions. It was a little expensive but it is wonderful. It explains things very clearly and gives you 40 op reports to code and an answer Key. I thought it was worth every penny as I had no problems with any of those things. You still need to know stress test, echos, EP, etc. On my test there were several questions re NP's. The test is pretty well rounded covering all bases!
    Where are you taking your exam?

    Good luck,
