    Default 2011 Code Books - Your Preference?

    AAPC: Back to School
    I'm receiving offers from various publishers wanting to sell me the 2011 ICD-9-CM, CPT, and HCPCS coding books.

    I'd like your opinions on which publisher's books you prefer and why.

    AAPC, Ingenix, Contexo, or other?

    Thanks for the advice!

    We use AMA CPT Professional Edition which I like alot. It is Easy to use. ICD-9 Book I like is by Ingenix. ICD-9-CM for physicians-volumes 1 & 2 Expert. I like the fact under the code it has a description of it and other ways it is called. It has alot more detail. it also tells you what is exclude from that code. I like the fact of all the detail next to code. I already have order my 2011 from Ingenix.
    Good Luck!
