    Default Advice before taking the cpc test

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am going in 3 weeks to take my cpc test. This is my first time, and of course, I am very nervous. Any help, advice, or tips that you have I would greatly appreciate it!

    I would take practice exams so you know what areas you're weak in and also to help you gauge your time. I went straight through, answered every question (circling the ones I wanted to go back and check if I had time). If you don't answer, you're sure to get it wrong, so even guessing is better than nothing. Mark out answers you know are wrong. Underline relevant info in op notes. Tabbing your books will help cut down the time you spend looking through the books. Wearing ear plugs will help reduce distractions. Hope this helps, best of luck!!
