    Hi , Everyone

    I am starting to panic. I want to take the exam on 7/10/10. I have a couple questions for those who like to answer. Did you pass it on the first time around? An is there any advise to people who are still trying to understnd why I am exactly doing this? LOL-( if you don't have to sit for this 5 plus hour exam )


    Thanks for any tips given in advance,

    Yolanda

    Red face I passed!
    I took the exam May 21st and passed. The actually auditing and related questions were the easy part. The test is very heavy on compliance. I would follow the advice posted in other threads as well, making sure you know about OIG, CIAs, Stark, etc. The NAMAS study guide was the most helpful text I used to study. Good luck!
