Medical Coding Academy has always been at the forefront of the medical coding industry when it comes to innovative ideas. We were among the first to offer an affordable, fully comprehensive online training course for the medical coding certification exam in Medical Coding Academy Online and our products are always improving and expanding to help students and professionals in new ways.
At the beginning of next month, we’re proud to be releasing two new books! We’ll cover the second one in today’s post: Medical Coding Mock Exam. Read on to learn more about what’s in the book, what all is included, why we wrote it and why you should get it. (Book will be available for purchase starting July 17.)
Ready to sit for the certification test? Test yourself by experiencing the real-life simulation of the actual test by diving into a mock exam. The mock exam questions contain test subjects to include:
- Evaluation and Management
- and much more!
The mock exam ensures that you are not caught off guard on the day of the test and equips you for the real medical coding certification test! The mock exam will reveal which questions you missed (and more importantly why you missed it) in order to avoid making the same mistakes again. That’s why each mock exam case includes a comprehensive answer key rationale with detailed explanations of the medical coding guidelines.
Second to none, this unique mock exam is jam-packed with the coding skills needed to conquer the test with flying colors. The Medical Coding Mock Exam book was designed to simulate the coding concepts frequently required by the AAPC® and AHIMA®. Once you’re done with the mock exam, it will then be time to equip you with the real-world skills needed to hit the ground running as you advance into the industry.
(This book is designed to accompany our other book, Medical Coding Exam Prep Study Cases.)

About the Author
This book was written by one of the industry’s leading Medical Coding Instructors, Mrs. Delissa Ortega. Highly recognized and esteemed in the industry, Mrs. Ortega used every ounce of her expertise to carefully study the medical coding concepts that are frequently utilized in the real world and tested on certification exams. With great determination, she brings to the industry a colossal amount of knowledge in a “bite size,” progressive-type format.
She wrote every case keeping in mind that a “well-written” case will expose what the learner doesn’t know. This prompted the meticulous undertaking of the case studies she included in this mock exam. After writing the cases, she moved onto the extensive answer key rationales. This is where she approached every case with a heart of compassion and a spirit of servanthood to the learner. Here, she reveals her treasured trade secrets and teaches the learner how to completely obliterate the misfortunes that testers are often left vulnerable to.
