Denise, are you still there?
Denise: Yes, I am.
Alicia: OK we try, we recently started doing this where we did a student interview or a special guest interview with somebody that have used our products and found success with them. So, Denise is our special guest tonight. She is a CPC-A. Denise, what products did you use with CCO?

Denise: I definitely used the Blitz DVDs and I swear by them. I just love Laureen and bubbling and highlighting and all of her tips were just terrific.
Alicia: Now, had you tried to take the CPC exam before or did you hear about Laureen’s Blitz and then take the CPC exam?
Denise: Oh no. I went to school and I finished a year program at a local school and I didn’t feel like I was ready so I attended an online school from Arizona and I thought I was ready, so last year I took the exam and I actually failed it by one question.
Alicia: Oh, that’s horrible.
Denise: That is so painful. I was just wretched so I was looking online and Laureen just really jumped out at me and I ordered her DVDs and they were a blessing. So, I started doing her DVDs for nine months and I retook it and I passed and I owe it all to her.
Alicia: That’s fantastic. It is true the Blitz does make a difference. I know that students that I’ve had that have taken the exam, they didn’t pass, they went to the Blitz and they did. What do you think it is about the Blitz that kind of…? Is there one thing about the Blitz, if you could pick one thing, what do you think it was that helped you the most? I know it’s hard to name just one, but what do you think it was?
Denise: It is hard, I say bubbling and highlighting and her notes. Her notes were just awesome. I wrote all of the notes that she wrote. I know I’m not picking just one. And also, her guidelines for the E/M and the “pick out the HEM” was just terrific. It was just perfect.
Alicia: I know in a teaching atmosphere you can explain E/M until you’re blue in the face, but it does make a difference. The Blitz just kind of opens it up and you see them start to say, “Oh! I see that.” Well you didn’t say it like Laureen.
