    Thumbs down ICD-10 Implementation Distance Learning Course

    AAPC: Back to School
    Has anyone taken the AAPC's ICD-10 Implementation Distance Learning course? I recently completed, and found it disappointing -- especially with the ICD-10 coding chapters.

    Just wondering what aspect of the ICD-10 did you find disappointing?

    Overall, I felt the presentation of the course was sloppy. It was repetitive in places, and I found some incorrect answers on the chapter tests. The ICD-10-CM/PCS coding guidelines were crammed into two very long chapters, and presented in a way that was confusing (and I'm an experienced coder). There were even a few instances of the narrator making comments about the course content to someone (an editor??).
