Q. I need a physical coding book for my coding exam. Help!


MBCC and HIT associate degree students receive their coding books during their Coding Foundations course. The College provides the latest editions available at the time the Coding Foundations course is taken. If the coding book edition is updated by the college, when the student takes the next three coding courses, the student will receive the updated edition for that course. AHIMA posts the editions of coding books on their website which can be taken into the exam. Graduates need to check the website when preparing for the CCA exam to verify they have the correct edition of the Coding book: http://www.ahima.org/certification/CCA  

If the edition listed on the website is different than the one received during coursework, because of the timing of when the graduate sits for the exam, it is the responsibility of the graduate to obtain the correct edition.  AHIMA will not allow incorrect editions to be taken into the testing center. 

Furthermore, only the CCA and CCS  exams allows students to bring their coding books with them to the exam. Coding books are not needed or allowed for the RHIT exam.

If you have further questions, please contact your HIT program coordinator.
