I was very disappointed when I found out that because I am not in school, I would not have access to the quiz/test answers. Also, I would not have access to the chapter answers either. I was preparing my self to sit and pass the CPC exam but I feel hindered. I feel that I should have been told before purchasing the book that I would have limited access to the course materials.

I purchased the Step By Step Medical Coding 2016 Edition textbook and workbook combination (see picture #1) for a medical billing and coding class that I enrolled in recently. This is the text and workbook required for the course. I have completed chapters one and two in the text and answered most of the corresponding questions in the workbook. The text is worded clearly and fairly easy to comprehend, which is a bonus since the concept is totally new to me (See picture #2 for an example of the text. The pink highlights are mine). However, I did find the workbook did not follow the exact sequence of the text. Since this is a revised edition, I wonder if the previous edition's order of questions aligned with the text and the author didn't realign the 2016 workbook with the revisions she made in the 2016 textbook. The answers were there but not sequential. The workbook also provides an appendix with the answers to the odd numbered questions for each chapter. This feature is helpful for a quick checking of your work and understanding of the material. Unfortunately, the answers for Chapter Two were not all there and did not match up with the review questions within the chapter. Chapter Two had 34 questions listed but the appendix answers only showed 21 (See the remaining pictures). As I perused through the rest of the book, the other chapters looked fine. Overall, I am pleased with this purchase and would recommend this set for students who are studying medical billing and coding.

Only 3 stars because like other reviewers noted, the workbook only gives answers in the back to ODD NUMBERED questions!!! What is up with that? I guess if I answer all the even numbered questions correct I can count on at least being 50% right....

I bought the Step-by-Step Medical Coding 2010 Edition - Text book and Workbook Package at the sale price of
$65.55 the regular price at that time was $91.95 which was a savings of $26.40. This Medical Coding Text book and Workbook Package has strengthened my ability to code the ICD-9-CM and ICD-10-CM/PCS Codes accurately when I was doing my homework assignments and taking online tests in college.

It also helped me to apply my critical thinking skills with more than 1,000 questions from Reimbursement, HIPAA
and Compliance, Modifiers, Outpatient Coding and Reporting Guidelines, Evaluation and Management, Surgery Guidelines and General Surgery and a excellent overview of the Human Anatomy explained in these ten chapters.

This is an excellent resource material for anyone pursuing a Medical Coding Career.

I would give it 5 stars, but am upset that all of Chapter 11 is missing without warning! Plus, the author only gives you the answer to the odd numbered questions. (Feels like I'm back in college--altho. I loved college!!!). I will still continue to use this seller tho. He's very good and trustworthy--except for this situation! Thanks for helping me re-learn my coding stuff and update my skills author and seller and amazon.com!

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.

Step by Step Medical Coding any year by Carol Buck is very informative for a coder, especially a new coder. Because she breaks down the information just as the title of the book suggest, and it correlates right along with the ICD-10th Edition.
It is also a good study guide when a coder is considering to take their certification.
