    Unhappy exam

    AAPC: Back to School
    I was wondering what everyones thought are on doing a retake of the exam. I failed and wondering if i should retake right away or wait. I was close but should I study hard for a month and retake or wait 3 months and study gradually? Help

    I had discussed this with several people and they also felt that retaking it as soon as you could was the best idea since it is fresh in your mind. Just study hard in the areas you did not pass. Good luck!

    I also failed the test the 1st time, had a hurricane coming...lol

    I waited a few months and studied. The other thing that I did differently was I wrote more notes in my cpt book, especially the anatomy section.

    Only read the question twice, if you can't answer it after the second reading, put a post-it and go to the next question, after answering all the questions then come back to the ones that you didn't answer. This gave me 45 minutes to go back and review. I passed the second time around.

    Good luck!!!
