Medical Assistant Notes: A Review of Everything MA
Welcome to the total Anthem Medical Assistant Course Review!

Everything herein are notes taken by a student, typed, and redistributed for educational and personal reasons. They are meant as a tool and not a replacement for any formal education, and are most geared towards review, especially for those expecting to enter the field for the first time.

Writer’s Note:

I hope you enjoy your packet of everything that we’ve ever covered in the MA program, or very close to everything. I feel that keeping this ‘book’ on hand will help in quick reference and general review for anything a person could be confused on, and it is geared towards the learning style Anthem’s instructors have beseeched upon me. For the most part the works are arranged in a way that follows a linear path, for maximum comprehension. Just start at the first word and work your way through them. I hope they help you in your endeavors!
