Hello Laureen, My name is M.C. I am currently enrolled in a Medical Billing and Coding program I will be done sometime in May 2012. I am really interested in the coding part of it. I will be NHA certified once I am done this course but I also want to be CPC certified. I am currently taking up ICD9, CPT4, and HCPCS courses but i dont think i will be ready for the CPC test because they focus more on the Medical Billing part. I was wondering if you can give me some advice..I was looking at your youtube videos and they seem really interesting. I just need a little more help. I would like to take the CPC right after I am done my externship which would be in May 2012.

Thank you,

Hi M.C.,

If I were you I’d take a CPC practice exam like in this book and if you get an 85% or higher then you are ready to take the real thing.

Either way I would get the review videos if I were you. They give you lots of tips on how to pass the CPC exam in addition to reviewing key concepts you will be tested on.
