    as far as i can remember no, there is no consistency, aapc does not even follow the cpt book for that matter. they do however cover pretty much everything that could be done in an ortho practice, including the spine

    i took it, it has a lot of spine and hip ops the killer however is the dx coding make sure you focus on those a good bit i got fustrated with them as they assigned 5 to 6 diff dx codes in diff orders i failed by 2 points because i just guessed on some of them and didnt take the time to look them up properly

    good luck

    i think it is just a plot, i missed by one point and i do remember a lot of coding inconsistencies; and answers that were not right at all
