Step-by-Step Medical Coding, 2013 Edition, 1e Reviews
Was definitely worth it. I purchased the book to help me further understand billing and coding. It is packed with helpful information as well as a clear view on how coding works. I also have the workbook which helps my studies. The book has other information on ICD 10 and I have access to the website to help further my education. If you are looking for a well paced, descriptive and complete understanding of coding within the healthcare system, this book is it.
I really would suggest getting this book if you are preparing for the CPC exam. It breaks down the steps that is easy to understand. I love the exercise's within each chapter which help test your knowledge of what you learn. I did, however, find some error's in the chapter answer section. The book gave an answer that is a deleted code in the 2013 CPT book. There was only a few errors so other than that I find the book very useful to prepare for the exam.
Ordered this book to supplement my regular textbooks. It is a great help as it explained the material in a more detailed (yet still simple) way. Got me over the hump on the Evaluation and Management material! Carol J. Buck hit a home run with this book.
This book was extremely helpful with learning coding. Pictures are great and graphics are well placed and exceptionally helpful. It was an easy read and the exercises in it are most helpful. Packaged great and shipped quickly.
The book was less expensive than college bookstore with no waiting in line, free shipping and no tax. I am disabled and the amount of books I purchased are large and heavy and with home delivery it made things easier.
Great product, great price. Condition as described.
Don't get me wrong I think it is a good book + a good teacher can be a good start.
