Learned a lot in a short amount of time. Learned how to tab my books and to write notes in the book. Received a mock version of the test to prepare you for the real test.

Great class, very extensive. Had all the information in the class needed to pass the test. I took lots of notes and followed with my ICD-10 book. It was very necessary to pass the test.

Cons

How long it takes to get the exam results

Other comments

I feel like this program prepares you well for working in the coding field. Honestly I borrowed the training book from a coworker that previously took the courses and just self taught from reading it. My job only had to pay the cost of the exam and my books (CPT, HCPCS, ICD-10)

I highly recommend this training. typical day consisted of 6-8 hours of study time followed by quizzes and exams. The hardest part were the practical application scenarios. I learned multiple aspects of professional coding. I enjoyed the flexibility of the online course.

All online training - self taught. It was self-paced but there was still a deadline when the curriculum had to be completed. It was easy, affordable and had good work/life balance potential.

I felt that this program set me up to pass my exam and had more information than the brick and motor school I attended. I liked that it was a self placed program since life doesn't always allow for regular schooling hours

I performed this course while working full time. I have been a medical biller for 25 years, for a urology practice, but still learned something new. This course goes over every specialty, and discusses all guidelines that apply. The hardest part is remembering all of the details. The most enjoyable part is obtaining so much knowledge in all aspects and areas of practice. A typical day of training included a lot of reading and taking tests. Overall it was a great experience.

“I wish I knew more about the position available in the area I would be working. I would have liked to know what positions I would be qualified for beyond a medical coder and I would have liked to learn more than what was taught to me. I wish the materials were more current and thus would not have been out of date by the time I was working. The degree didn't open as many doors as I'd have liked but I still intend to make it work for me.”
