    Default Taking my CPC in May... any advice?
    Medical Coding Books
    I am taking my CPC exam in May and I am really worried! I just completed my Medical Billing and Coding classes @ Southwestern College and most of my classmates are'nt taking the test until they get some real world experience. If I pass I will be given the CPC-A until I get 1 year on job experience. Does anyone know if billing but not coding for a physician could be considered toward that experience? But anyways I purchased the practice exams and have been taking those and I think they are really going to help me. Well to everyone else getting ready to take the exam " GOOD LUCK"!!

    Smile Took my 2nd exam in Jan 2010
    Hello! I took the exam in Dec. and didn't pass and then took again in January 2010 and passed. I took a course, but never received the course instruction online, so I basically studied on my own. I completed Contexo Media's bootcamp in late Dec. That gave me the knowledge I needed to pass the exam. The biggest piece of advice I can give you is know the Guidelines inside and out. I not only took Contexo Media's test at the end of the bootcamp, but also purchased AAPC's tests. They are the closest to the exam. Good luck.

    Thank you for your advice.. I also purchased the practice exams and have been taking them everday. Thanks for the tip about the guidelines, that has been a problem for me with the practice exams, but I am starting to do very well on them!!
