CPC Exam-Any suggestions

  1. Default I suggest skipping the long questions
    Medical Coding Books
    I suggest skipping the long questions and coming back to them if you have time since they are worth the same amount.

    Try and narrow down your choices from four to two by ruling out an ICD-9 or CPT that is incorrect.

    I also found that the right aswer is usually repated in a slightly different form in at least one of the other options, so if you are looking at all four options and you see one CPT that appears in two of the options start by looking that code up.

  2. Default
    D Hoover, I have read over all the replies you got and the best answer I saw was Aimie's answer. I took the exam Feb 26th 2011 and with an hour left passed with an 86% on my first try. Always look for modifiers first eliminating them then look for multiple answers of one code. Start your lookup process that way will be the biggest help I can give you. Goodluck.

    The CPC exam mainly focuses on the CPT book.
