This comprehensive review guide is designed to help certification candidates prepare for and successfully pass either the AAMA-sponsored CMA exam or the AMT-sponsored RMA exam. The review material is presented in an easy-to-understand outline format with a practice pre-test and a practice post-test, for a total of 600 questions. Each pre- and post-test consists of 300 questions, the same number as seen on the AAMA national certification exam, and questions mimic the format of the exam featuring 100 transdisciplinary questions, 100 administrative questions, and 100 clinical questions. A practice CD-ROM is packaged with the book, containing three practice exams with a total of 800 additional questions in the same format as the actual CMA and RMA certification exams, with automatic scoring for instant feedback. Combined review/practice approach offers one comprehensive source for content review and test preparation, reducing study time and saving students money. Outline format provides an at-a-glance review and streamlines the subject areas typically found on the CMA and RMA exams. Practice tests with rationales in the book strongly correlate with actual CMA/RMA style questions and help pinpoint areas of weakness. A chapter on test-taking tips and study techniques suggest invaluable methods for learning and recalling information. An accompanying CD-ROM offers 3 additional practice tests for the CMA and RMA exams (800 questions total), complete with answers and automatic scoring.Deborah E.
