2011 CPC® Workbook
The CPC® Practical Application Workbook helps improve your coding skills and prepares you for AAPC’s CPC® exam for outpatient physician settings. The workbook contains exercises, operative notes, and progress notes for each of the sections in CPT®. Practice your coding skills using CPT®, ICD-9-CM and HCPCS Level II coding manuals.
This workbook is ideal for coders looking for additional practice with more than 160 real life notes and additional exercises to improve day-to-day coding and exam preparation. The answer key provides rationales for each case and includes a dissection of the documentation to highlight the information needed from the note to select the correct code. If you are feeling overwhelmed digging through documentation to determine what is relevant for coding, this workbook gives you the practice you need to code operative and office notes with confidence.
This workbook is not an introduction to coding but a practical application of coding concepts.
- 10 notes for each section of CPT® to practice all coding concepts (total of 160 notes)
- Online answer key includes rationales for each note
- Online answer key includes documentation dissection to highlight key information needed to select the appropriate codes

"Well, I thought that I was so ready to sit for [the CPC Exam] last month. I found out differently upon taking the exam. As I was preparing for the retake to have taken place today, I ordered the CPC Workbook to compliment my studying from the CPC Study Guide on working out sample case scenarios. This workbook did so much better than just complimenting my studies; it reinforced the guidelines and coding principles that I had been faced with on the first exam â€¦ It's all due to this workbook detailed hands on manual approach to looking up the diagnoses and procedure codes. Please suggest this book as a key part to the Study Guides that you put out. It's truly a major essential part of exam preparation and time management needed for moving very quickly when the test begins."
