Does CPC Exam Prep Really Work or Is it a Scam? Here is a review of Laureen Jandroep's Program:
The Medical Coding Certification Review Blitz is a comprehensive CPC exam prep course created by Laureen Jandroep. It is the perfect solution for students who will be taking the certification exam for medical coding, and who want to prepare thoroughly and pass the test on the first try. The exam has a reputation for being quite difficult, so this is actually something of an accomplishment. In the following paragraphs I’ll discuss the details of the course, and the benefits you can expect from using it in your prep.
Laureen Jandroep has been helping students pass the CPC exam since 1999, and is a well known expert in the field. Her course combines online and DVD training modules along with full email and live support. The information and study techniques in the guide have been honed and improved, and have proven to be extremely beneficial to students of all ages. The course also covers the CCS-P physician based coding exam.
Who is it for?
Anyone who is planning to take the CPC or CCS-P exams will benefit from this prep course. Given the high failure rates for first time exam takers, it is well worth the investment. Jandroep has a knack for providing students with the information they need to pass the exam without bombarding them with too much to cover in a reasonable time. The stress of having to take this exam is overwhelming enough without an overly cumbersome study regimen to worry about. The information you need to know is condensed neatly into the study videos in an easy to learn format.
By studying the video lessons you will be able to:
- Review each of the chapters of the CPT book.
- Learn the types of questions that will appear on the exam.
- Become a master of time management during your studies.
- Develop your strategy for looking up codes beforehand.
- Have the personal guidance of an authority in the field.
Most of all, the course is a great confidence builder that will have you feeling calm and collected when you go to take your exam. You will know the information inside out, and will know exactly what to expect from the exam.
A Better Alternative
Studying for the CPC exam with textbooks alone can be extremely tedious and boring. The video lessons are designed to be engaging, and to help you stay focused on the material. You’ll be amazed how much information you’ll be able to retain in such short amounts of time. The videos are broken up into specific study topics, and each video builds upon the information in the last.
Medical Coding Certification Blitz comes in the form of downloadable videos, but you also get DVDs in the special 2012 edition. There are just over 9 hours of video in total, and each chapter is only 20-35 minutes in length. I recommend watching one video at a time so you will be able to absorb the material before the next lesson. As a great bonus you get 60 minutes of one-on-one phone support from Laureen herself, as well as access to a Yahoo Groups study community. With all of these features and benefits, this course is just too good to pass up.
