    Let me put in my vote for the Case Manager's Study Guide. I read it through, cover to cover, about a week before I took the exam, and passed with flying colors.

    Get the Case Managers handbook, the 4th edition is out now. I studied the book by Fattorusso and failed the CCM. I am taking it again in Dec. Good Luck, it is a hard test to pass.

    I found this topic very helpful when I was studying for the exam. Thank you all for your help and insight! What I found most valuable when studying for the exam was the ccm prep course from prime, inc. It is electronic, as was my ccm exam, so it was easier to study for the exam. I did not pass solely because of this course but it sure was necessary. I know you will all do wonderful! Study hard

    Does anyone know when we will get our results from the August 09 (I took my test on 8/29) exam? How do we receive the results? Via mail or e mail? Thanks!!

    I checked my "Dashboard" last Monday (10/5/09)on the CCM website and found out that I passed. I have not gotten an email or anything in the mail. I am actually quite shocked that I passed! I studied for months and used several different study guides. I thought that I knew everything that there was to know about Case Management...until I took the test! I came out of there just shaking my head and not having any clue how I did. Anyway, I hope you get your results soon and that you passed, like I did.

    thanks, i checked my dashboard just now and i passed also! What do they do, pass everyone? I too, had no idea how I did. I didn't feel particularly good after I had taken it. My co-worker is afraid to look to see how she did as she is 100% convinced that she failed. Anyways, thanks for telling me how to get my result and congratulations to you and everyone else who took the test and passed also!!!

    Maybe they graded on a curve! Congrats to you and your co-worker, as I am sure she passed, too! I never want to do that again!!

    me neither......I wonder what in the heck took so long for us to get our results and why they don't at least send an e-mail prompting you to check your dashboard for the result. I think that that's the "least they can do" after you shell out the $300 bucks!
    Just curious, what type of case management do you do and what state are you in? I'm in telephonic worker's comp and am in Michigan.
