    Default Best Coding Books for Newbie?

    AAPC: Back to School
    I just passed the CPC and am now an official CPC-A! (Yay!) Up to now, I have had to use only the AMA published coding books (Physicians- CPT, ICD-9-CM, and HCPCs), which are the only ones allowed for the exam. Are there any other ones easier to use? I can see where better layout and organization would be very useful!

    Thanks for any advice!

    I only use Ingenix ICD-9-CM for physicians volumes 1 & 2 I think it is the easiest to use.
