Thread: CPCO Exam

  1. #1

    Default CPCO Exam

    AAPC: Back to School
    I was wondering if anyone has taken the CPCO exam yet. What additional reference would be most helpful to bring to the exam? Any study/exam tips you can share?
    I hope to take this exam in the next few months and want to be ready.

    I am wondering the same thing. So far I have printed out many of the links under "prepare for exam" - there is a lot of information. Would love to hear feedback from those who have taken the exam and how you prepared for it.

    I am also wondering the same thing. I am currently working as a coding compliance auditor and want to take this exam. The links provided do have a lot of information. Any info is appreciated.

    I am taking the CPCO exam on March 5th. I have all the links that were provided and am studying from that. I too am wondering what type of materials that will be needed for this exam. I am sure I will find out prior to that day. I do not think any coding books will be needed though. Just make sure to know laws inside and out. Even ones that do not seem to pertain to healthcare. Be prepared.

    I talked with the AAPC and they will be coming out with a study guide and practice exam within the next 6 months. I will study multiple resources until then!

    Default I Passed!

    I just got my results and I did pass the exam. I must say that it was a very difficult exam. I second guess myself on several of the questions, basically because I wanted more information in the question, but you gotta go with what you have.

    The links that AAPC has provided is a very good resouce.

    Good luck to all taking the exam... Keep studying and you will do great!
