Medical Coding: In over my head?

I've been taking the American Assoc. of Professional ( Coders' CPC-H certification course in medical coding for facilites. To be perfectly honest, I did this on a whim (I spent all of two days researching "start-from-scratch" career paths, thinking that was the only way to go for someone in my position).

New job selling laboratory equipment, but have no lab/science experience

I recently accepted a sales position within a company that sells laboratory equipment. (i.e. centrifuges, GC's, HPLC's, Thermal Cyclers, etc) I have no previous lab or science experience, so learning about a myriad of highly technical products/methods is a quite challenging. My main challenge comes from the fact that I need to engage in conversations with scientists, chemists, biologists on a daily basis.
