    Hello everyone,

    I am sending in the money and application to set for the Certified Coding Specialist (CCS) exam for medical coding.

    I need all of the good thoughts you can spare.

    I am very nervous about setting for this exam because I sat for it last year and failed one part by 3 points...arrrgh

    It is an expensive exam and I am praying I will not have to take it again.

    I have been studying for ever it seems and will continue to do so because the exam is very difficult -- to make an understatement.

    It will take 6-8 weeks to get my approval for testing and then I am just going to schedule my testing time and go for it.

    So please any words of encouragement will be greatly appreciated.

    Are you able to pick the time you set the test? I know that my best time for concentration and learning is in the morning.

    I'm sure you will ace it. You've already sat it once and to have only missed by 3 points....well it should be a slam dunk this time. There's much more stress, much more unknown, the first time around. You're experienced now!!!

    All the best,

    EILEEN is right. With most tests there is a strong practice factor.

    I feel sure you'll do just fine.

    you guys are the greatest -- I really mean that.

    I have to admit that I felt a little silly about making this post but I am so glad that I did -- there is nothing better than encouragement even if I did ask for it...LOL

    supergirl99, carebelle, mrdad, prickles, BRUINZ, Laura, Sydney, 1sweetie, Georgia, nyrofan, and dona,

    You all will never know how much this means to me and as soon as take the exam (6-8 weeks) and get my results I will post and let everyone know -- either way.

    With you all pulling for me -- I can't fail :)

    Thanks again to everyone I really appreciate it,

    Karen :)
