Packed with test-taking tips and techniques, the 2012 CPC® CERTIFICATION STUDY GUIDE delivers a current and comprehensive review that helps you maximize your success on the AAPC CPC Certification Exam. The guide begins with a complete summary of the business of medicine, giving you a solid understanding of the medical office and the role of the coder. It covers ICD-9-CM guidelines using real-life examples. Each body system is reviewed, including coverage of the anatomy, related diagnosis coding, CPT® coding, HCPCS Level II coding, and modifiers. End-of-chapter questions are modeled after those on the actual certification exam, while operative notes give you hands-on experience coding what you have learned. Additional testing techniques and an end-of-guide practice exam lets you put your skills to the test.
