Thread: CPC Student Needs Encouragement...Help!

  1. #11

    Smile Pass Specialty Exam in a Specialty I"ve never worked in ?

    AAPC: Back to School
    Has anyone taken a specialty exam in a field that they have not worked in ?

    I've been coding for 25 years now....CPC certified in 2003 and now I'm thinking of becoming certified in a specialty that I haven't tackled. I agree that having two years in that particular field lays the foundation for the test, but with hard work others have done it.

    How did you study for specialty exam ? Were you in a group setting or did you strictly fly solo ?

    Any and all advice is appreciated !
