    For those of you who have the CPC E/M-did you purchase the study guide through AAPC? If so, did you find it helpful? Or do you think some other method of studying for that test would be better?

    Default No special studying

    I didn't do any special studying ... other than to review the guidelines in CPT. I relied on my years of experience, and good audit tools (both 1997 and 1995).

    I agree with Tessa- I did buy the study guide, I read the whole thing, I did the practice questions, but it didn't help when it came to taking the exam. The 95 and 97 guidelines are all 'I' needed ... I didn't do any special studying. I audit and use the guidelines daily, so I didn't need anything else.

    oh - you should be strong in the 'category of E/M's' ... since I do this daily, I already had every code memorized (i.e. new patient, established patient, consults, nursing home, observation, etc, etc.) if you can't pop off those quickly and know the difference ... I would recommend doing so.

    I wonder what certification is the least valuable and what is the most valuable. I am interested in the auditing also. I just wonder what employers would want though
