    I took the exam in 2009 and I took both 95 and 97 with me. I recall a few questions where it told me to use one or the other and even both. Take them both.

    Default Official Exam guidelines

    I believe the official exam guidelines instruct you to bring BOTH 1995 and 1997 audit tools/ templates with you. When I took the exam there were a couple of scenarios where you were asked to code based on a specific set of guidelines. In at least one case you had multiple questions on the same note - Q1: code based on 1995 / Q1: code based on 1997.

    Good luck

    You can bring a copy of the guidelines themselves (which I would strongly recommend), and any audit tool you're comfortable with. My little tool only has 1997 guidelines, because that's all I need, but most tools out there don't make the distinction, or they have areas from both guidelines for you to use on the same form. I took the Trailblazer tool to sit for my exam, and it worked out well for me, so it's just your preference, really. Hope that helps!

    Default Related question on the CEMC exam
    It states that you can bring an audit tool with you. My question is if that means one copy/sheet of the tool you usually use, or can you bring more copies - one for each case you will be coding for the exam?

    I am taking my CEMC on the 29th. Feeling confident and ready for it - a change for my usual test anxiety. Hope this doesn't mean I am overconfident and blow it!

    Thanks.

    Could you please send me the audit sheets you use? I have multiple different ones that I will switch on and off from but none of them seem like they flow well. I appreciate it, mandyflagg@gmail.com
