    Have you tried Amazon.com or Half.com? In the past I have bought used books from both for great prices.

    You can have writing in your CPT book for the test. However you cannot have anything loose in your book or stapled, or taped in it. Like outside reference materials. I have read that you are now allowed to tab the sections but the tab can only have the section name on it and nothing more.
    When I sat for the CPC I had notes written all in my CPT book. Some of them so small I had to squint really hard if I wanted to read them and the proctor said it was fine. Of course all the notes were basically clarifications of terms that confused me or definitions of words that I was unfamiliar with

    You might to try to contact your local AAPC chapter if you have one. They or someone they know may have books (personal, work) they may be willing to loan to you.

    I ordered one from half.com.. it said it was used and when i got it, it looked brand new, better than my used books lol,, and i am takin the CCS exam with AHIMA not AAPC so i'm not sure what their ruling is as far as writing in books and stuff. I already have my CPC and CPC-H but in my area where i live almost 95% of employers require CCS instead.

    Thanks everyone for the comments.
