    I would try and take a class either in a classroom setting with a CPC-I Certified Professional Coder Instructor through the AAPC or on line. At least do the practice exams on line. You will be more prepared next time as you know now what the test looks like. Please do not beat yourself help over it. Just take a breath and start now preparing to set for your retake. If I can help you in any way please do not hesitate to contact me.

    I took the exam on 12/10 and got my results yesterday, it was my first time and I passed. I took classes at Martinez Adult School. The CPC Review class has a great new teacher, maybe you should take her class, her name is Jeanette Forester.Good Luck!!!!!

    My suggestions to you are to study, study, study. Study in small time blocks to give yourself time to absorb what you have learned. Afterwards take the end of chapter tests or the practice tests you've purchased to reiterate. If you should come across any questions or confusing lessons always go the discussion forum or someone you know who have coding experience. Most of all, don't give up since it interests you so.

    Good Luck on the next go round. You Can Do It!!!!

I really need it i felt so down!! as I have made a decission Im not giving this up! 1 plan on getting my new books so i can get ready for 2012 and give it my all..... I plan on taking the practice test on line and start with that first then maybe if I can afford it taking a class once again or hiring a tutor,before i take a retake on my exam......if i do have trouble i diffently will contact you and even the chat with other people..... and also the saying goes like this,if at first you dont succed try,try, try, again...............

    Im sorry that it did not work for you but do not give up. I did not pass the first time.

    Maybe you didnt finish the test? Just read through the guidelines. E/M,anesthesia,pregnancy,diabetes, V codes,E codes, Radiology, some integumentary system and the Category codes too. Im sure you will do well the second time.

    Bring some candies to munch on at the exam, do not drink too much water prior to the exam (So you wont have to go to the restroom which will take some of your time), in case you don't get to finish the exam just try to bubble the blanks as much as you can.

    Best of luck to you. Do not give up!
