Why Is Our CPB Practice Exam So Effective?

Unlike other Medical Billing practice exams in the marketplace, all our instructors are CPB® Certified and have sat through the original AAPC CPB® Exam. We learned the material in detail and have been working with students for years to help teach them Medical Billing. Now we’ve assembled our knowledge into these CPB® Practice Exams to help prepare for the official exam. Here are a few things you can expect from our tests.

All CCO Instructors have previously sat and passed the AAPC CPB® Exam. With our combined experience, we have first hand knowledge of what you need to know for Medical Billing. These practice tests mimic the experience as closely as possible.

Real World Examples

We’ve gone through a lot of trouble to verify our CPB Practice Exams are accurate and correctly coded. We have each question reviewed by Certified instructors before they’re approved. And most of these cases can be seen in the real world.

Our CCO Proven Method for Passing the CPB® Exam

Passing the CPB® Exam is easy when you use Laureen’s time-tested and proven method. Follow the 3 simple steps below to practice and you’ll practically guarantee yourself a passing grade.

Step 1: Get a Timer

For Step 1, grab a timer from the kitchen. We prefer the small digital ones or even a smartphone. Since the AAPC exam is timed, this is a critical component to passing the exam.

Step 2: Timed Quiz

For step 2, begin our online Mini-Mock Practice Exam while spending a maximum of 2 minutes per question. If you exceed 2 minutes per question, you’re not ready and you should consider taking our CPB® Review Blitz as a refresher.

Step 3: Score 85%

For step 3, you need to score a minimum of 85%. Do this, and you’re good to go! If you score less, you’ll need our CPB® Review Blitz and another practice exam.
