    Dr Z and his study guide (which he wrote for the AAPC) is invaluable. I also purchase the practice exams for the CIRCC, they are online and you can take them as many times as you want.

    I did not take any classes, not really any convenient for me, since I am working full time.

    I do suggest you have lots of regular coding experience, and at least some experience with IR.

    you can feel free to contact me directly if you have any further questions.

    Enjoy! remember, one bite at a time...

    Heather,
    Can you say where you found those on line tests? That will help.
    Krist_d, you can also use me for any questions. Just to let you know, it's just not angiography and heart caths. There is many more area you will need to know.
    Good Luck,

    You can find the practice test on the AAPC website under "prepare for exam" where CIRCC is discussed: http://www.aapc.com/training/circc-prep.aspx

    Thanks for all the help! If you wouldn't mind, could I get email address for contact purposes I planned on ordering the test as well as the guide. I have coded vascular surgery/proc. for over a year and now doing Cardio/thorasic for just over 6 months. So I am hoping by the time I take test I will be well rounded in the areas. Thanks for the help once again!!!

    I'm taking my CIRCC exam tomorrow. Any tips for the exam? I currently code dialysis, PAD, carotid cases now but I know there is more to the exam than this. Nervous...
