Smile What's the difference between books???

I'm needing to order my coding books for 2011....but what is the difference between standard, professional, and expert??? I have usually ordered the professional edition of ICD-9 and CPT, and the standard edition of HCPCS. Is there a difference in these books??? This would be for a physician's office.

I have also always ordered the AMA books from Amazon.com......any difference in AAPC books?? I just received my certification this past spring and would like to make use of my benefits with the AAPC organization as much as possible!!!

Thank you,
Tracy Wood, CPC

Congratulations Tracy!
I order my books through the AAPC. There is usually a discount especially if you order early. I prefer the CPT professional, ICD-9-CM vol 1&2 (AAPC version), and the AAPC HCPCS "Medicare Level II expert". They are perfect for the physician office.
