  1. I am sitting for the CPCS exam next month while in Phoenix and wonder if anyone has any suggestions for study materials? I am currently certified as a CPMSM, but believe this to be different. I tested under the old guidelines. Thanks for your help.

  2. Kim –
    I took the exams prior to the recent format changes. That having been said, my recommendations would be the NCQA Credentialing Standards, the Joint Commission Medical Staff Standards, the NAMSS CPCS Study Guide, and the MSSPNexus Quizzes. Although I don’t have a copy, I’ve also heard that Verify and Comply by Carol Cairns (HcPro) is a good resource.
    Best wishes!
