Review

'…I would recommend this text. I have used this textbook for the past few years and have found it to be easy to work with as an instructor, and the students also seem to find it easy to follow and filled with helpful information."Gerald B. Harkless, MA, BS, RHIA, Adjunct Faculty, St. Philip's College, Alamo Colleges, San Antonio, TX

"This is the only comprehensive HIM/HIT career book out on the market. Nowhere else can you find a variety of alternative careers with detailed explanations in one book…it is very well done. Ann Peden has done a good job at updating the material, explaining ARRA and HITECH ACT, ICD-10-CM, EHRs, etc."Crystal Clack, MS, RHIA, CCS, Adjunct Faculty, DeVry University Online

What I notice on HIM books by AHIMA (RHIT, RHIA) authors: They aren't actually authors, and have little training. There are entire paragraphs where the writer adds superfluous text, repeating the previous paragraph, stated every so slightly differently, just to fill space. There are endless references in parentheses to what something USED to be called, which is irrelevant. The word "promulgated" must have been drilled into each and every one of them .... and they use it frequently, like every sentence. I would rather watch paint dry. Actually, I think my laundry room needs a new paint job, I will go do that and watch it dry. Oh, note, buy your books in the summer or months prior to the actual class, it will save you about 100.00 on the cost because the prices increase at start of the semester.

The quality and physical condition of this book was wonderful. The book itself? Well, I am glad I was able to get it from Amazon and save some money! The area of health care that this book "covers" is becoming more and more complex, but the information available about it is wordy and vague, while demanding that YOU come up with clear-cut answers to various legal situations that can and most likely will arise at one time or another. This is a fairly decent book of its type, but the main failing of them all lately, is that they are paper-back, they are lacking in detailed information (already stated) and are wildly expensive. On campus, this book USED is nearly $200. On Amazon I got it for around $80 if I remember correctly. Clearly, I will make use of Amazon for text-books in the future - evenso, the prices are difficult to justify. When you can get better and more detailed information from Wikipedia regarding circumstances being "taught" in your text, something is vastly wrong and severely overrated. I needed the books and got them, but as I said, Amazon will be my supplier from now on!

I actually received the international version of this book, and I contacted the company. They were very accommodating and did everything they could to make it right. They offered to send me the correct book or I could keep the international version and they refunded me $40. After comparing the international version with the US edition, it was the same book so I opted to keep the international version and got a refund. The book was in great condition and I received it quickly.

I am very pleased with the rapidness of the shipping department, very excellent work!! Knowing that the book is a rental I did not like the idea that it is acceptable that pages be highlighted.

The book looks basically brand new, but it's the INTERNATIONAL EDITION. The book was shipped from Malaysia. I'm not feeling real comfortable about my purchase now. Who knows how different this book will be. The cover shown on amazon IS NOT the same as the book received. No where did it state I was buying an International Edition. I can't even sell this back to my school bookstore. I'll continue with my review once the class starts in a few days, but I am not happy at all.

I rented this book. It is the only book I have rented that wasn't in the best of shape. There was a lot of marks and high lights so a few parts were hard to read. But it came on time and was easy to return. I would order more books online to rent.
