For students completing accredited medical assisting and/or medical administrative curricula; and for healthcare professionals in review courses leading to recertification as a CMA (AAMA), RMA (AMT), or CMAS (AMT).
This is the clearest, most concise, most current review text for students preparing for the CMA, RMA, or CMAS exams, and for working medical assistants preparing to recertify. It covers exactly what students need to know for their exams, presents valuable study hints, and explains exactly what to expect on exam day. Designed for quick and easy use, it contains more tables and figures than any competitive title. It also contains nearly 800 practice questions presented in the format of the AAMA’s and AMT’s exams — including a complete 300-question “final exam.” Rationales are provided for all correct answers, with links to relevant information throughout the book.
