CPC Practice Exams and Formula for Success

  3. Practice Blitz exam taking techniques by completing TIMED practice exams.
    1. Start with shorter 50-60 question exams and finish with a 150 question exam.
    2. Allow your self an hour per 25-30 questions.
    3. Complete entire exam in one shot, perhaps going to the library where you won’t be disturbed and to make it feel like the real thing.
    4. Use a digital kitchen timer to count time down 60 minutes at a time per the Blitz technique.
    5. Use a sample test grid to get used to using it for the real exam.
    6. Score your answers and review ALL rationales thouroughly.
    7. Repeat the process until you score an 85% on shorter exams.
    8. Then if time and budget allow complete a 150 question practice exam.
