I used to code IR about 4 years ago, and I loved it! I want to get back into it, but it sounds like the odds are not in my favor.... I know I need to find a job that doesn't require the cert so I can build up speed. 70 cases in 6 hours would be incredibly hard... I don't think I can do 11.5 cases per hour unless there is a balance of level of difficulty. Does anyone know if you can write notes in your reference books? That could save time by noting which codes can or cannot be billed together. That is what I did for my CPC, but that was a long time ago!
To the coder taking Dr. Z's boot camp - I would love to hear how that works out! I have another friend doing that also. Since they write part of the exam, I would think that they can teach specific cases that would prepare you, but it might also be info overload!
Good luck to everyone taking the exam!
