    No you only get a pass or fail. One of my co workers failed the first time and she received a report of sorts that showed how close she came to passing.

    how frustrating....you'd think if you did good then they would at least tell you your score.......instead if you didn't do good, then they tell you EXACTLY how bad you did.LOL.......how bizarre; yet, almost insulting.....hhmmmmmm.

    For anyone who's taken the test recently, I am scheduled to take the test in March. I have been studying like crazy. I have the Case Managers Study Guide, Prime Inc study guide and have subscribed to the Casemanagerexam site to recieve practice questions daily. Any other suggestions? Am I on the right track?

    Let's see -

    I read the Case Manager's Handbook 3rd edition- was not impressed- skipped lots of this and felt she was trying to promote her business model more than anything
    Case Managers Study Guide by Denise Fattorusso

    Also the CMSA Core Curriculum for Case Management by Suzanne K Powell

    And used the CCM Flashcards from Mo Media. That way I could do a quick review and they are easy to carry around. These are basically repeats of what's in the above books but I found easy to use for review. Once you read the book it's hard to go back through and find stuff you may want to re-read

    Read every book cover to cover.

    I was surprised how easy the test was. I felt very unprepared when I went. Was afraid there would be lots of questions on meds, treatments, etc.

    It was mostly principles and laws, regulations, insurance info about HMO,PPO, Medicare, Work Comp.

    Course I've been told they chage each time. Good luck

    Hi,
    I think that you will be fine. I thought the test was very reasonable. I was able to recall on my nursing experience. I thought the Case Manager Handbook-the one by Fatturosa and Campion (sp) was a GREAT study tool. I studied less than 2 weeks prior to the exam, prayed and that was all she wrote. I wouldn't get into paying for websites, expensive study modules, etc. The key is to ascertain what the question is asking you. I hope this helps.
