Buck’s ICD-10-CM Online Training Modules, Transitioning to ICD-10-CM Coding makes it easy to learn ICD-10-CM coding and prepare for the AAPC’s ICD-10 certification exam. The book provides a step-by-step guide to coding rules and concepts, while the Online Training Modules provide practice with realistic coding exercises. After you’ve read the chapters in the book and completed the online modules, you will be ready to take a practice exam simulating the 75-question AAPC ICD-10 exam (also located in the Online Training Modules). Best of all, you can use this integrated course of study to earn continuing education credits!
