Certified Coding Specialist–Physician-based CCS-P Exam Preparation, Seventh Edition


For test-takers sitting for exam beginning in May 2017, the 2017 ICD-10-CM and CPTcode books will be used, and the seventh edition of the CCS-P Exam Preparation book aligns to these codes and code books.

Whether you’re a student or already on the job, Certified Coding Specialist–Physician-based (CCS–P) Exam Preparation provides the guidance and practice you need to successfully prepare for the CCS-P exam. The book’s practice exams are based on and organized by the CCS–P competency statements.
