Medical coding exam

How much does it usually cost to take the exam? Which book or books should I buy to prepare? This is so confusing and I can't seem to get a hold of the head of the medical division. Any advice?

  • It cost me 450 to take the exam and 12000 for school. Go to the AAPC website for books. You NEED to rule out books they don't allow.

  • Ok, I am in school right now for Health Care Administration and already took a class in this BUT they were so vague about which exam I need to take and such. So there is like 6 or so exams on the AHIM site and it confused me on which one I needed to take.

  • When I took a class, it was $1200. I believe that $300 or so of that was for the actual test. It's not cheap. That was almost 5 years ago...
