I took the December Exam and passed on my first attempt. I am an RN with solely bedside nursing experience and felt very intimidated when I started thinking of taking the exam. I used Deanna's online resources including the CCM Certification Made Easy book and found it provided information to be precisely what I needed for the exam. Thank you Deanna for being such a great and helpful resource for those taking on the new role as Case Managers!
In The Book, You Will Discover:
Written By a Case Manager
Unlike other books that are written by test prep companies, this book was written by a case manager that successfully passed the CCM Exam.
Easy to Read
No small crowded print for these tired eyes. The font and line spacing was purposely chosen to be easy to read.
Based on the CCMC’s Exam Blueprint
The Commission for Case Management Certification gives us the Exam Blueprint in the CCM Certification Guide, telling us the subjects we will be tested on. This exam blueprint was the outline for CCM Certification Made Easy, so you will know you are studying material pertinent to the exam.
Each and every item on the exam blueprint has been addressed and explained in CCM Certification Made Easy. Relevant definitions from the CCM Glossary of Terms are included, as well as pertinent material from CCMC’s Definition and Philosophy of Case Management, and CCMC’s Code Of Professional Conduct for Case Managers.
There are no long winded explanations, filler or fluff. Each area is covered in a brief, to the point format. Unlike other exam prep books that fill pages and even chapters with fluff to increase their page count, CCM Certification Made Easy does not waste your time with material irrelevant to the CCM Exam. This allows you to quickly and easily review for the exam.
Written Specifically For the CCM Exam
This book was written from the first word on, specifically to help you pass the CCM exam. Many other books that claim they are CCM Exam prep books are in fact, generic test prep books that have been tweaked with just enough information to make them relevant for the CCM Exam. But if you look closely, you will find they use a lot of the same material in test prep books on other subjects. CCM Certification Made Easy will not waste your time on information not relevant to the CCM Exam.

Are You Looking To Become A Certified Case Manager?
Trust me, I know how you feel…
I’ll be honest with you. When I first began studying for the CCM Exam, one of the most difficult things that I had to overcome was finding the right book to study from. With little to invest, I was looking for one book to cover all of the material on the exam.
But after investing in several books, I still couldn’t find the information I needed to feel confident I would pass. All of the books covered the same material, and they all left out A LOT.
I have a confession…
I have a tendency to go a little overboard with things. I can’t leave something as “good enough”. I have to know and understand every detail. So when I applied for the exam and received the CCM Certification Guide I read every word of the 18 pages. I noticed that they gave us a list of the exam content. I was looking for one book that would explain this list of exam content. But with all of the books I had, I was still missing a majority of the information on the exam.
I panicked. How was I going to pass this exam if I didn’t have the material I needed to study? So I started rigorously researching the material myself. I spent hundreds of hours reading books, surfing the internet, attending lectures and interviewing professionals. I used the information I gathered to create my own comprehensive study guide. And using this, I passed the exam!
But I didn’t stop there. I wondered if this information would be helpful to others.
About that time…
I received a phone call from a colleague. She was extremely upset as she had failed to pass her certification exam after 2 attempts. She had to pass by the end of the year or she would lose her position.
I gave her the information I had compiled and we agreed to a weekly phone call to review any information she had questions on. I rewrote any material she did not find clear, and she reviewed it again.
It was finally time for her to retake her exam. And this time she passed!
The good news is, you too can pass the CCM Exam, without spending countless hours and hundreds of dollars. I’ve made it easy for you by compiling all of my painstaking research into CCM Certification Made Easy: Your Guide to Passing the Certified Case Manager Exam 3rd Edition.
What People Are Saying
I find myself really enjoying the book and actually looking forward to my quiet time to read it! I don't usually feel that way about study guides but I love the way yours is done. Thank you too for the larger print! My vision at 53 isn't what it used to be so I truly appreciate that! It's very useful in my job to have that extra understanding of how things work.
Deanna's book, study guide, website were extremely instrumental in my success on the CCM exam! They helped me focus on the important information and encouraged me to relate the material to personal experience.
I highly recommend her book and accompanying material for a cost-effective, comprehensive avenue to success!
“I found this website the night before I took my exam. I wish I had found it earlier. I have shared it with a friend who will be testing next week and demanded she study from it.
I never leave reviews, but I have to tell you that this site was incredibly helpful. If I had found your book earlier I would have purchased it but it looks newly released. I will share this site and your book information with anyone taking the exam.
Thank you so much for doing this, making it accessible, and not charging an arm and a leg to have the same advantage of anyone. BTW, I passed!!!! Thank you again.”

“Hi, I want to thank you again for sharing your website with nurses who are studying for their CCM. I have told many of my colleagues who are studying and may whom have already passed have used the site. They have all thanked me and I’m passing it along to you.
I am hearing that this information is all that is needed and the information you have here is what is on the test. We all appreciate your hard work and dedication.”
The author for this book is so helpful! The book and her website are key and a budget friendly way to pass. She’s really passionate about this so much so that when I email her with a question she answers- basically she comes with the purchase of the book lol. She genuinely cares about the success of case managers and you can see it from the verbiage in the book and site.
You can’t go wrong with this book because its helpful in preparing for certification and a good resource to have. .P.S. its a easy read, its not heavy like a textbook its like a workbook so u can study on lunch at work and her site has the kindle download which I used to read while walking on the treadmill. .yea I’m a mess lol
