Are you ready for your exam? The PROFESSIONAL REVIEW GUIDE FOR THE RHIA AND RHIT EXAMINATIONS, 2011 EDITION book and CD-ROM are essential preparation tools for the AHIMA Registered Health Information Administrator (RHIA) and Registered Health Information Technician (RHIT) certification examinations. This packed resource maps to the most current AHIMA-COC standards and provides strategies, test-taking skills, and a great comprehensive mock examination for practice.
"I want the students to practice the format which the exam will be given in and apply what they have learned in the practice sessions. Breaking up the questions with each section that the students will be responsible for answering helps the students gain the confidence in sitting for that 5 hour exam. The CD is great as this is how the exam is offered. The students can study from the PRG and then practice with the CD-ROM which is just like the actual exam."Mary M. Cantwell, RHIT, CPC, CPC-H, CPC-I, RMC, Professor, Metropolitan Community College, Omaha, Nebraska
