I just proctored a CPC exam 2 weeks ago, and I happen to still have in hand the rules for doing book checks. Quoted from the Instructions for AAPC Exam Proctors sheet: "Tabs can be inserted, taped, pasted, glued or stapled in the manuals, if the obvious intent is to earmark a page with words or numbers and not add supplemental information. No other material of any kind may be taped stapled or glued into the manuals to be used during the examination. Handwritten notes in coding books (as those commonly seen in daily work coding activities) are permitted. Manuals will not be disqualified due to writing cotained therin." So my suggestion... if you have something that works great for you feel free to write it in there as it will not be disqualified!
