    AAPC: Back to School
    Taking the test in September and been studing with the online practice test and the study Guide. I was wondering if the test was given out on paper and if you can write in the test book? Thanks

    I took the cpc in may of last year. You are allowed to write in the test book. Also the answer sheet is on paper. It is a scantron like in college. Be prepared! I used all 5hrs40min. It was very involved. I would recommend looking up the answers that the multiple choice gives you as opposed to trying to code it yourself. That way you can immediately eliminate 2 from the get go and you only have to choose between the remaining 2 answers. Hope this helps, good luck

    Thank you!! I keep losing my place on the computer practice test and am getting fustrated. My X-Ray boards were on the computer but it was one question per screen even on the practice exams. It helps knowing I can mark things on the test book. Thanks again!!
