    I've been doing Billing & Coding for years and have now decided to take the certification test. Would you suggest taking a course or can I just study the book?

    Will your company pay for the course? If so, go for it! It won't hurt.

    No I'll be paying for this on my own.

    I recently took the CPC exam and I did pay for a review course out of my own pocket - I thought it was well worth the time and money - I passed the exam!

    I took the course in 2006 and work in the billing field since then and now want to do the coding certification. I am working as a biller/coder now for a Dr's office. I am studying to take the exam in Sept but am studying on my own with books from 06 and the AAPC 2011 study guide. Are there any areas that I should focus more on? Do you have any suggestions or advice?

    Buy the practice tests and take those - if you do well on them, just take the test. If they're harder than you expected, then get the study guide. You get 2 shots at taking the exam. Good luck!

    Jashani1 - Can you please update the group on what you decide and what route you take. I too have been billing/coding for years and have always wanted to become certified but unsure of the path to take. I've only done billing/coding for private practice/professional services so I'm sure there is A LOT that I'm missing. Thanks for sharing

    I decided to purchase the Study Guide and the online exam and go from there. I will keep you posted.
