    Good luck. I've only been a case manager for four months, but they won't let ER case managers test because we don't do the "continuum of care." I'll stick with my CEN cert I guess.

    Three colleagues and I took the CCM exam on Saturday and thought it was very difficult. We have been preparing since fall of '03 and we came away feeling very uncertain as to our performance. It seemed to focus on several areas that we were familiar with, but not inthe detail that it required. Anyone else take the test on Saturday, 4/24/24 and have any thoughts or comments?

    I was pretty comfortable about the morning section... the afternoon section was a little more difficult... I Didnt really study that much but the book/CD I used was very helpful indeed I saw some very simliar q's on the exam... I felt I knew the entire content of the exam.. I mean I didnt see anything I wasnt familiar with.. however some of the verbage was tricky... honestly I left feeling I either passed it by a little bit or failed it by a little bit... its been 4 weeks now... guess we'll know in another month or so... why on earth do you think it takes so long????

    Good news is I read over the certification guide again and they use a T-score scoring system which is a curving method.. os if most people were as unsure as we were.. we may have done just fine!!!

    Which book did you use to study with? Has anyone tried "A case manager study guide: Preparing for certification" by Denise Fattorusso/Campion Quin? If so, how well do you think that it prepared you for the exam? I'm just getting ready to start studying for the exam to be taken in April...I need some ideas on good prep material to study.

    I'll cross my fingers for you that you passed!!!
