AHIMA has recently published some beneficial tips for preparing to take a certification exam.  For anyone who is looking to take an AHIMA test, (such as the CCA exam), these tips may be beneficial.

Take a look at this newsletter published in the May issue of the American Health Information Management Association.

The highlights of the article are:

-Take the exam as soon as possible when completing a program.
-Use your educational experience to your advantage.
-Use practice tests.
- Find study buddies.
- Don’t forget to eat breakfast, arrive early, and bring your books.

As a reminder the Career Step training program currently prepares students for the AHIMA CCA exam, not any of the more advanced certifications.

Take a look at this blog post that answers frequently asked questions regarding the CCA exam.

Happy testing!
