New textbook for PBC 2019

New Textbook & Content Changes for 2019

Effective January 1st, 2019, we will no longer be using AAPC Textbooks or Workbooks for this PBC Course. Instead, we will be using Elsevier's 2019 “Step-By-Step Medical Coding” Textbook and Workbook by Carol Buck.  The new 2019 textbook will be available for purchase in mid-December and the new course lectures will become available shortly afterwards.

Note: The current 2018 PBC Lectures will remain available to current students through September 30, 2019. The material does not change much from year to year, so you'll be perfectly fine using the current 2018 book you purchased along with the 2018 lectures. The big bonus here is that you will also have access to the new 2019 material once it's released so you can watch them for additional understanding if you like. At the end of the day, both courses are teaching the exact same concepts and fundamentals and you'll get the same deep learning experience whether you are using the 2018 or 2019 lectures.
