Organizing your books

You may not think you have to get your books ready so you can take your CPC exam.

Organization is key when getting your books ready to test!

I like to color code everything

  • yellow
  • orange
  • green
  • blue
  • pink
  • purple

I get highlighters, pens, and post-it note tabs in these colors

I need to draw my attention to certain things in my code books so I use highlighters and pens to do the job!

Yellow is for any definition I need to know

Orange is for guidelines

Green and blue are for Cat and kitten codes(more about that later)

Pink is for your actual test you will use this for questions in which you have answered but need to come back to double check answer. You will use this on the exam booklet to highlight the code scenario key terms you are looking for

purple is for your actual test  you will use this for questions in which you could not answer and had to skip, you will have to come back and check these out! You will use this on the exam booklet to highlight the code scenario key terms you are looking for

You will want to begin by getting your current year version of each of the code books(ICD-10-CM, CPT, HCPCS)

There is a video below showing you my color coding technique

Do not over-highlight as this can distract you and the purpose is to draw your attention
