    I have the second edition of this book and I have never purchased the third edition, but it does make one wonder if the same errors exisit in the new edition.

    Not to reflect off of the subject here, but did Deb Grider leave the AAPC? I don't remember any communication from AAPC that she had left. I have noticed that she is not included in the Coding Edge anymore and wondered if she was still with them.

    I've been curious about that too...one day she's CEO, then all of the sudden, it's Reed Pew, and she's vanished! Who knows?

    Default Oh...there she is!
    Looks like she's @ Blue and Company, according to LinkedIn: http://www.linkedin.com/pub/deborah-...s-p/14/14a/64a

    Default NAMAS guide

    Oh, and didn't Deborah Grider leave AAPC? Maybe now there wouldn't be such strong support for materials created by her.

    Either way, I am going to get the NAMAS book, study and take the test. I will likely be posting any questions I have so keep your eyes open.

    Thanks again,
    This guide is not without its faults/inaccuracies.
    In the section where they talk about specialty physical exams, in the 'male GU' section they mention menstrual history. Who edits these things?

    My staff and I all reviewed the Grider book (third edition) as well as the NAMAS book. I found them both to be helpful, but as always when you run across something that seems blatantly wrong, go with your own common sense. You are most likely right!!
