I graduated my with honors, scoring a 95% on Career Step's final exam for the Medical Coding and Billing Program.
Their final exam is supposed to be similar to the CPC and prepare you for that, so initially I didn't think I needed to do anything else but take practice exams to prepare.
Well, I failed with a 60%. I ran out of time at the end of the exam, and had to randomly bubble 10-15 questions.
On the re-take a month later, I PASSED! Thanks to Laureen's videos, I worked through the exam much faster and even had time at the end to go back and check some of my answers.
And there were at least 7 questions that I was able to answer specifically because of the notes and guidelines she had us write in the margins.
I am so grateful I found this website and PASSED.
I purchased the blitz videos (reluctantly) after failing the CPC-H test on my first try. I am ever so grateful that I did! After watching them, I was amazed at how really unprepared I was that first time! The bubbling and highlighting is worth their weight in gold!!! OMG, I can't believe how much time that saved me! There is so much information in these videos! I watched several times before my retake and walked out feeling great about how I did! I PASSED!
The blitz videos are a must have!!! They are worth every penny!!! Thank you Laureen! You are AMAZING!!!
And now for my shiny new credentials
Andrea Bertucci, CPC-H-A
I just found out tonight that I passed the CPC exam on the first try. There are 3 key individuals that I would like to thank. I could NOT have passed the exam without their help.
First, my instructor, Laureen explained the material very thoroughly. She was VERY knowledgable and a GREAT teacher.
Second, my coach, Alicia pointed out a LOT of important things that I didn't know before. She was very helpful and patient with me.
Last, the admin coordinator, Slyvia always gave great information to all my questions. She was quick and EXTREMELY responsive.
Thanks guys! You were a GREAT team.
Ruben Cespedes, CPC-A
I just want to say that Laureen is the BEST! The blitz videos are the key to pass your CPC exam. I passed my exam on my first try and I am really happy I did purchase these videos. I recommend this to anyone who wants to pass the CPC exam. Lots of information, bubble/highlighting technique is really helpful.
Physician Based Coding Course
There is a lot of information in Chapter 5 but Alicia and Laureen are there for help even when you are about ready to give up. I recommend this course. Don't give up.
I wanted to say how helpful the blitz videos were in preparing for my CPC exam! I took a boot camp and finished that in October. I felt that I needed a little further preparation and purchased the blitz videos. I passed on my first try (11/1/14)! Laureen's videos were very helpful in preparing for the exam, especially understanding E/M and modifiers better! I have no prior coding or billing experience, so this should really help you to consider purchasing these videos in addition to taking a coding class/boot camp. I am so grateful and happy today! Thank you!
Spinal fusion/anterior approach for L1-L3
Laureen and Alicia have been extremely helpful in answering my questions. Your guidance through this journey is priceless. You ladies "rock"!
I am ecstatic to say that after trying a few times on my own to pass this very difficult exam, I am finally certified. Many thanks to Lauren for sharing her strategies to attack these questions, especially them huge paragraphs that scared me to death. I listened to the dvds everyday at work. I practiced in the evenings at home.I took the time to bubble and underline buzz words. By the time I took the exam, I was confident this would be it. It was! Can't wait to make that cha-ching! Happy Coding everyone.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
After failing the CPC exam miserably the first time, I bought your videos. The second time I passed, increasing my score by 25%! I will recommend all of your videos to everyone! Thanks so much for making this easier to understand.
You Can Pass too
I found CodingCertification.Org while searching for medical coding information on YouTube. I went to their website and registered for one of their free monthly webinars. I loved the vibe and knew that was the type of course I wanted to take. I registered for the PBC course along with the Blitz. I took my time and did it at my own pace. Even though I did not pass the first time I took the test I never gave up because CCO gave me the tools I needed to pass. I had to adjust my studying techniques a few times and finally passed my CPC March 2014. I am always impressed with all that CCO has to offer. I have so much confidence in CodingCertification.Org and now that I am CPC when I tune in to their free monthly webinar I gain 1 CEU :)
