    the codes are finalized and the books are official they are just labeled the official draft edition. The codes are now partially frozen for ICD-9 CM and ICD-10 CM, therefore when the 2012 ICD-10 CM is released (as a draft) then that will be final revision until oct 2014. There were only a few minor revisions from 2011 to 2012, mainly just to add a few new codes to stay instep with new dx codes added to ICD-9 CM 2012.

    First question has been answered. On your second question about the A&P through AAPC. It is 16 modules and it is taken at your own pace. Hope that helps. It has power points and audio and print outs for each module. I thought it was very interesting and a great refresher on the A&P.
