Available Study Guides 

At the links below you will find study guides IC&RC endorses for their respective programs. IC&RC does not participate in the development or publication of these guides, However, IC&RC does feel that the information in each guide is information candidates should know to prepare for their examination. Examinations may contain additional information not covered in each guide so candidates should be sure to prepare thoroughly by reviewing the content section of the Candidate Guide for their examination.

IC&RC has developed Candidate Guides to provide candidates with guidance for the IC&RC examination process. Candidate Guides provide background information on the examination development and administration process. They also contain exam content guidelines, sample questions, and examination reference lists. Each IC&RC examination has a coinciding Candidate Guide which can be found linked below:

Practice Exams back to top

IC&RC has developed practice exams to assist candidates with their exam preparation. Practice exams were developed to mimic the exact look and feel of IC&RC's testing platform. Practice exams are available for the following programs:

 Examination  Number of Questions  Cost
 Alcohol and Drug Counselor (ADC)  50  $49.00 USD 
 Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor (AADC)  50  $49.00 USD
 Clinical Supervisor (CS)  50  $49.00 USD
 Prevention Specialist (PS)  50  $49.00 USD
 Peer Recovery (PR)  25  $30.00 USD

After completing the practice exam, candidates will receive a score report identifying their areas of strength and weakness. 

Please note: There is currently only one version of each practice examination. Purchasing multiple exams will result in candidates taking the same examination with each purchase.
