The Certification Step: 2004 Physician Coding Exam Review Guide
In an easy-to-follow, general outline format, this review focuses on passing coding certification exams. It covers anatomy and terminology for each body area, reimbursement issues, and an overview of CPT, ICD-9-CM, and HCPCS Coding. The accompanying CD-ROM contains a timed, scored, 150-question practice exam that is modeled on the actual certification exams and is designed to be taken twice - once as a pre-test and once as a post-test. In tutorial mode, specific sections of questions can be reviewed with instant feedback for study and extra practice. An additional final exam must be taken with paper and pencil, to simulate the experience of the actual examinations. Instructor resources are available; please contact your Elsevier sales representative for details.
