Editorial Reviews

Review

I feel this text will be useful in helping instructors and students learn the material for ICD-10 and the transition that will occur. Most of the schools are going to have to start teaching the material to the students in the school year starting in 2011 to have them ready for May graduation in 2013. Betty HaarProgram DirectorKirkwood Community CollegeCedar Rapids, IA

The authors cover the concepts in a manner that students understand and the text book is very user friendly. Beginners in coding are very overwhelmed and worried that they will not be able to grasp the topic. The text breaks each body system down in a very understandable and efficient manner in layman's terms. I feel this book will continue to be useful to both instructors and students as this transition occurs.

This textbook is clear and concise. The purpose of this text is to help understand ICD 10CM and ICD 10PCS and the author does so. Additionally, there are many areas that describe the transition from ICD 9 CM to ICD 10 CM which helps. If you have an understanding of ICD 9, you will be able to follow the text as it establishes this transition. There are plenty of examples and the textbook is easy to follow. A very good purchase for the money!

I am studying for the CCA and CCS-P and this book has more explanations on why you select the code assignments. It also has a disc where you can practice record scenarios. I believe that it will help me on the upcoming exams because it is currently helping me to code in class now.

As a Nurse, been using these for years, and these work just as well as the ones I order from more expensive bookstores. Now buying all of my medical products, supplies, pastes, etc. on Amazon. Worth the price. Recommend.

I had to have this book for a Train the Trainer class along with 3 other books. When you factor in the weight of all of this, I opted to get the book on Kindle. I was able to zoom in or out, highlight, write notes (and not mark up the paper edition that I was sent to keep for use when I train ICD 10). It lightened my load. I was also able to get an App from Amazon to put the book on my PC. I gave it 4 stars because I didn't find it as detailed as I needed for this class. I will have to still purchase other study material before I sit for the certification exam. It is worth the price and convienence of having it on my kindle and PC. I would recommend this book.

What is the point of having a work text if there is no answers to the questions within the book!! Also would have loved to see some uniformity from chapter to chapter but some of the chapters were all over the place. Not the best book, IMO

would have liked an answer key in back of book - since I10 is more self learning I would like to approach this way. This is more of a gradeable course - not for me.
