Consider using medical coding review videos as your exam prep

There are a lot of options out there when it comes to getting help to get you certified as a medical coder fast. You may have the experience and coding knowledge to take the CPC exam, but it is still a good idea to invest a little to get further coaching and advice as part of your preparation. There are no shortage of practice exams, books, prep courses, certified trainers, and review classes that you can use.

Let’s add one more unique choice to the list: coding review videos. Video engage more of our senses, so when we study using coding review videos or DVD, we simply absorb more due to the fact that it is in an audio and visual form. Laureen Jandroep has released her blitz review videos for coding and CPC exam for some time, and since it’s release has been helping students to pass the CPC exam on their first or next try.

If you commute a lot, why not download the videos onto your iPod or MP3 player to squeeze out more review time. When you’re at home, just pop in the DVD.

Not everyone studies at the same pace, so in a classroom environment you are usually either ahead or behind. The blitz review videos is like your virtual classroom, you get to pause, rewind, and fast forward your teacher. And if you have questions that aren’t answered in the videos, you still have her telephone support and access to her private community of experienced coders and billers.

Tips for taking the CPC exam

Nobody wants to know how to fail the AAPC CPC exam, so the following tells you what to look out for. You just need to be aware of certain CPC exam rules that can result in you getting disqualified or automatic failure. You can consider this as a quick checklist of what not to do when you’re in the medical coding certification or AAPC CPC exam hall. So let us discuss what are the things you shouldn’t do that breaks the exam rules.

Leave your cell phone behind

First of all, you’re not allowed to bring your cell phone to the exam. This also goes for any electronic devices like smart phones, tablets, mobile gaming consoles, etc. You wont have any place to stow them during the exam anyway, so the best solution is to just not bring them at all.

Bring the right tools

With that said, make sure you do bring the required items for the medical coding certification exam. Check with the CPC exam proctors several days beforehand to know what you’ll need. Basically you’ll need a picture ID, your member ID, #2 pencils, as well as the CPT, ICD-9CM, and HCPCS II manuals.

Keep up to date

Remember that the code sets for each coding book are updated every year, so it’s essential for you to have up to date books. Using out of date books would obviously puts you at a disadvantage, with substantial penalization. The exams are updated every January for the new code sets, so you can’t use upcoming year’s book for the exam. Do keep in mind that the exam proctors may not clarify test questions during the CPC exam.

Tabbing your coding books

You’re permitted to tab your coding books for quick reference, whether you inserted, glued, pasted, taped, or stapled it in the manuals. Having handwritten notes in the coding books are also acceptable only if they pertain to daily coding activities. The guideline is that they should be used with the intent to earmark a page with words or numbers, not supplement information in the book.

Keep it to yourself

Finally, any attempt to smuggle exam materials out of the exam hall will result in you failing the AAPC CPC exam. If you exhibit collaborative or disruptive behavior, then it can be cause for immediate action by the proctors. Because the CPC exam materials are confidential, you may not copy or discuss the questions with others during or following the examination. Now that you know how to fail the AAPC CPC exam by breaking the exam rules, be sure to keep all the points here in mind and you’ll do well to pass the AAPC CPC exam.
