A grueling examination for would-be medical coders, taking nearly 6 hours long, the CPC or
Certified Professional Coder certification exam by the American Academy of Professional
Coders (AAPC) is brutal and does not boast of a very high passing rate for first time test-takers.
If you have failed the CPC exam, trust me, you are not alone. Even though the CPC exam is an
open book exam, there are a great many factors to take into consideration.
