    I recently took the cpma exam and missed passing by 1% I did take the 2 day class prior to the exam and used the study guide. I felt there was material on the exam that we did not cover in the class, a lot of compliance questions. good luck I am taking the exam again this month.

    I just recently took the two day training class as well in Jacksonville at the conference. I thought it to be beneficial. I can say that the class was a great help in understanding certain criteria. I am just waiting for my results as well, I felt good after taking the exam so maybe that is a good sign

    I took the two day training course offered by NAMAS. The study guide published by NAMAS was a simple review of the regulations; it contains the 1995 and 1997 E&M Guidelines and few practice questions and scenarios. It was very basic. It was not helpful to me; however, many of the people that I spoke with at the conference that took the course felt it was beneficial.

    I thought the study guide written by Deb Grider was more appropriate and beneficial. You can purchase it from the AMA, from the AAPC, Amazon.com, BARNES & NOBLE, e-bay, etc.
    Here is the information about the publication.
    Medical Record Auditor, Second Edition
    Softbound with perforated answer key, 8-1/2" x 11", 366 pages
    ISBN#: 978-1-57947-884-1
    Item#: OP301007
    Authors: Deborah J Grider, American Medical Association

    The Medical Record Auditor, Second Edition is less expensive and provides a lot more information and practice scenarios.

    Which ever way you go, I wish you success.

    I took the CPMA course thru NAMA'S as well. I have coded E&M for over 5 years. We didn't follow the study guide real close during the class, and I felt that you must over it in your spare time. It will explain several questions that are asked on the test, and how to answer them. I think if you do that you will not have a problem passing. Good Luck!!
