My advice is to use your time wisely.  The test is divided by sections so I saved the specialty that always takes me the longest for last.  I also looked for questions that were simple to answer and saved the questions with more than 3 or 4 codes for later. ICD9 codes are always easier so I looked for thoses too.  Don't spend a lot of time looking for an answer that you may be stuck on, just move on. (I drew blanks on a few and wasted time). If you can, order the 3 study tests from AAPC and time yourself while taking them.  It really helped me and gave me an idea of what I could expect.

Good luck to those taking the test.  Remember that you are an Andrews student and you will do great!
