IC&RC Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor (AADC) Examination
Getting Ready to Test: A Review and Preparation Manual for Drug and Alcohol Credentialing Exams, 8th Edition with the supplemental guide A Supplemental Review/Preparation Manual for the IC&RC Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor Credentialing Examination
This 2-volume set was developed to assist candidates in their preparation for the IC&RC Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor (AADC) credentialing examination.
It is not designed as a stand-alone product, but will add information relevant to the AADC examination not covered in the larger Getting Ready to Test manual.
The 338-page supplement includes a 150-question sample written exam
Candidates preparing for the AADC exam can purchase both guides from ReadyToTest.com.
Please note that while IC&RC strongly recommends purchasing guides listed above, the AADC exam contains a lot of questions on co-occurring disorders that requires supplemental knowledge to that presented in the ReadyToTest supplemental manuals above. As such, it recommends that candidates order SAMHSA’s TIP 42 from samhsa.gov or purchase The Basics references below.
