Well, my first piece of advice is to stick to a time limit for each question. The majority are long op reports and I ran out of time, having to guess at least 15answers at the end. I never learn and after spending too much time in my CPC exam on the first few questions, I was always chasing the clock...I did exactly the same in the CANPC.
I have no anesthesia experience at all so that made things harder. I know that doing it every day is a huge benefit so if that's what you do you should be fine. I will soon be coding anesthesia though.
There were a lot of pain management questions in my test but having communicated with others who've done the test, it's not the norm to have as many. Obstetric questions are also prevalent and I also had quite a few questions on sedation which I knew nothing about as it's not in the practicum.
Anyway, good luck; hope this helps.
