    AAPC: Back to School
    Anyone who has taken the Emergency Specialty Exam:

    How should I prepare for it?
    Is it hard?
    Any tips?
    Are there any review courses for the specialty exams?

    Default Emergency Specialty Exam

    I believe the AAPC has specialty study guides for all the specialty exams.
    I am currently studying for the E/M Auditor exam and purchased the E/M study guide from the AAPC.

    I Have not seen the er study guide but i purchased the CPC study guide and was very disappointed. It was almost ..word for word...what was in my cpt book...the only thing i found helpful were the practice tests....it was not worth the $125...by a long shot.

    Default Ed Exam

    I purchased the study guide but I won't be taking the exam for two more weeks. I read that we can bring along another book with the ICD-9, CPT, and HCPCS book, except for the study guide. Is there another book someone could recommend that would be helpful? Would you bring a med term dictionary or what? Any help would be great!
