Mini Mock Practice Exam Information

A GUIDE TO USING THE MINI-MOCK PRACTICE EXAMS

Overview

When you purchase a single mini-mock practice exam (A-Ruby or B-Sapphire or C-Topaz) or the package of all 3 practice exams, you will get access to both the ICD9 and ICD10 versions in the membership area. For each type of exam (ICD9 or ICD10), you will have the opportunity to download a printable PDF of the exam.

It is suggested that you download the printable version by clicking that version then clicking the box in the top right corner to download and print it. Complete the Printable version of the Exam – in a timed fashion. Then, take the online version by popping in your answers to get your results.

Printable version

Number of questions: 60

Time limit: None, but the recommended time to complete the PRINTABLE PDF is 2 hours. This is to mimic the time limit of 5 hours 40 minutes for 150 questions for the real CPC Board exam, allowing some extra time to check your answers on the real exam. This helps you build the necessary speed to manage your time appropriately.

Online version

Taking the exam/ Popping in your answers

When you start this test, you are asked to enter your name, email address, and a password. Make a note of your password… you may need it later if you use the save and finish later function, aka save and resume.

It is recommended that you schedule enough time to complete entering your answers so you do not need to use the save and resume function.

Number of questions: 60 (in the same order as the Printable version).

Passing grade: 70%

Questions displayed per page: 10

You may go back and change your answers to previously answered questions.

You will not be able to submit your test with any questions unanswered.

There is a “save and finish later” function if you cannot finish in one session. Find the link for this function at the bottom of each page of 10 questions. To resume later where you left off, click on the test from your membership area, and be sure to use the Resume link (and not the “Start a new test” link). Use the same email address and password that you entered previously.

Reviewing a question: Scroll down to the bottom of any page (group of 10 questions). Click the link to display previously reviewed questions. You can go back to that question and change your answer if you wish. You will then have to keep hitting the NEXT/ PREVIEW button to get back to where you were previously in the test, or to another question that you want to review.

After you submit your answers

When you submit your answers, you will see your result and score. If you passed, you can use the “download certificate” icon to download a Certificate of Completions, which will have your name, name of test, and your score.

IMPORTANT: To see the questions, answer choices, and rationales, scroll down. Note that you cannot right click and use the Print link to print out information from this page. However, to save your score, results, marked up questions and rationales to another document, highlight (select) whatever you want to keep for later, copy and paste it into another document (e.g. Word doc) on your computer. Do NOT close the result page window until you have saved anything you want to keep!


Example of feedback for each question

This is totally bogus because we don’t want to show you an actual question, but gives you the format that you will see. You will see this type of output for each of the 60 questions.
