"Medical Coding Certification Exam Preparation" is designed to aid in the review for the Certified Professional Coder (CPC) exam. While not intended to be an introduction to medical coding, it provides an extensive review of the topics students need to know for the CPC exam, including coverage of anatomy, medical terminology, pathophysiology, as well as the concepts, guidelines and rules of medical coding. Based on their significant teaching experience and affiliations with AAPC, authors Cynthia Stewart and Cynthia Ward bring a fresh approach to preparing for the exam. The book is organized around the principle that students need the tools to understand how to break cases down and how to translate services, procedures, and diagnosis into codes. The importance of understanding and knowing how to locate and use the guidelines inherent to the ICD, CPT and HCPCS coding manuals is emphasized throughout the book with the use of Spotlights and Mentor Coding Tips. Each chapter contains questions similar to those found on the CPC exam. In addition, each of the five units of the book ends with a Unit Exam, meant to be a cumulative review. Finally, the book concludes with a comprehensive practice exam using ICD-9. (An ICD-10 exam is also available to help prepare students for the ICD-10 proficiency exam in development by AAPC.) Additional practice is available through Connect Plus, McGraw-Hill's online assignment and assessment tool.

Many dynamical systems are described by differential equations that can be separated into one part, containing linear terms with constant coefficients, and a second part, relatively small compared with the first, containing nonlinear terms. Such a system is said to be weakly nonlinear. The small terms rendering the system nonlinear are referred to as perturbations. A weakly nonlinear system is called quasi-linear and is governed by quasi-linear differential equations. We will be interested in systems that reduce to harmonic oscillators in the absence of perturbations. This book is devoted primarily to applied asymptotic methods in nonlinear oscillations which are associated with the names of N. M. Krylov, N. N. Bogoli- ubov and Yu. A. Mitropolskii. The advantages of the present methods are their simplicity, especially for computing higher approximations, and their applicability to a large class of quasi-linear problems. In this book, we confine ourselves basi- cally to the scheme proposed by Krylov, Bogoliubov as stated in the monographs [6,211. We use these methods, and also develop and improve them for solving new problems and new classes of nonlinear differential equations. Although these methods have many applications in Mechanics, Physics and Technique, we will illustrate them only with examples which clearly show their strength and which are themselves of great interest. A certain amount of more advanced material has also been included, making the book suitable for a senior elective or a beginning graduate course on nonlinear oscillations.
