    I am a CPC, but i want to take the CCC in October. Could someone send me some tips on how to study for the exam. Is it extremely difficult? What references were allowed? Do I need to purchase a Cardiology Coding Companion to study from? Please Help!!!!!!!!!!!

    Are you currently coding in a cardiology specialty? If not I would not suggest taking the CCC. Cardiology is quite extensive with lots of different areas that must be understood prior to taking this exam.

    If you are coding for cardiology AAPC offers a study guide and online practice exam.

    I took the test back when they had the old codes and I have been doing Cardiology coding for several years. The test was very hard and I fortunately passed the first time. It is very extensive make sure you know how to peripheral code (which is easier now with the new codes). Good Luck!
