I can't help with advice re the CCC exam although I have done quite a bit of cardiology coding. AAPC says that the specialty tests are difficult and they are, rightly so. On the other hand they recommend 3 years experience in a specialty before sitting the test. I took the CANPC because my company wanted me to, and passed first time ( just) without any experience at all of coding that specialty. I studied for three months. Having coded anesthesia for a year now I know I would pass with a much better score. So, yes, I'm sure a year is more than enough preparation although nothing beats hands-on coding as a learning tool.
