In the Fourth Edition of Study Guide for Lippincott Williams and Wilkinsandrsquo; Comprehensive Medical Assisting, the exercises and activities have been aligned with the most current (2008) Medical Assistant Education Review Board (MAERB) of the American Association of Medical Assistants (AAMA) curriculum standards. Program directors, instructors, and students will know which activities in this Study Guide support comprehension of knowledge from textbook (cognitive domain), which support the practice and skills needed to become a competent entry-level medical assistant (psychomotor domain), and which exercises encourage critical thinking and professional behaviors in the medical office (affective domain).
The Study Guide is divided into four sections that coincide with the textbook: Administrative, Clinical, Laboratory, and Career Strategies. Sections One, Two, and Three include exercises that reinforce the knowledge and skills required of all Medical Assistants. Section Four includes activities to andldquo;put it all togetherandrdquo; as a potential medical office employee and to prepare you for either the Registered Medical Assistant (RMA) or the Certified Medical Assistant (CMA) credentialing examination. New to this edition, Chapter 47 in the Study Guide gives students the opportunity to reinforce information learned throughout their program. This final Study Guide chapter includes documentation skills practice for a multitude of situations and active learning activities to engage students with previously learned knowledge.
