What is the big deal About the CPC® Exam?

The CPC® exam is a complex 150-question 5 hours and 40 minutes multiple choice exam. Testers must answer 105-questions correctly to pass the CPC® exam.

When polled, most AMCI students shared that they found the CPC® exam difficult because several of the scenarios on the CPC® exam were lengthy. Testers who do not complete the CPC® most likely don’t possess:

  1. A thorough understanding of the medical coding guideline
  2. Are not up to date with medical coding guidelines.
  3.  An efficient testing technique.

Most CPC® exam takers take the exam more than once. Fortunately, testers are permitted two chances to take the CPC® for the price of one.
