    Marty,
    I used all of Jim Collins materials. He prints handout sheets about all different cardiology procedures. Have you been there? cardiologycoder.com

    I borrowed a study guide from a coworker who had taken the CCC exam. It used to be offered by AAPC before they went to the online study guide. I wonder if you could go to amazon and look at used ones?

    Thanks for the information on cardiologycoder.com. I am also wondering will the questions on the test be multiple choice or will have to dissect the information from the op notes. Also, where can I do on cardiologycoder.com to recieve the op notes. Will i have to join the website to get them.

    Thanks,
