Our original research into the Addiction Counseling Exam, Examination for Master Addictions Counselor (EMAC), IC&RC Exam, NAADAC Exam, CAADAC Exam or CAAP-1 & CAAP-2 Exam, offered by the state licensing boards, International Certification & Reciprocity Consortium/Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse (IC&RC), National Association of Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselors (NAADAC), California Association of Alcoholism & Drug Abuse Counselors (CAADAC), and National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC), reveals the specific content areas and the essential skills that are critical for you to know on the Addiction Counselor Exam.

  • The two situations where you should NOT check your answers thoroughly

  • Learn how to group your answer choices into "families" that often narrows down the pool of correct answers- this is a quick way to immediately eliminate one or two of the answer choices and increase your odds of getting the question right

I purchased the Secrets file, and I just wanted to let you know that I got a 99% on my test. I just want to thank you again, and hope you have continued success in your ventures. Sincerely, Paul L.

My name is Chris. I used the Secrets study guide for five days. The study guide made the test so easy to understand. Like you said this program is worth 100's of dollars. To me 1,000's!! THANKS, Chris G.

I just had to thank you guys for the test prep! I bought the guide as a last minute prep, I mean maybe 5 hours before the test. Like I said, I had ZERO preparation! I was nervous about the test let alone receiving the score I needed. I read the guide through only once before test time and needless to say, the only way I passed was thanks to your refresher!! Brian

I heard about your website from a friend. I am enrolled in a review course, and in hindsight, I wish I wouldn't have taken my review course and instead spent a fraction of the money on your program. Thank you! Zac L.

You get at least 10 times your money's worth! --When you consider what's at stake with the exam, we believe the value of our study guide gives you at least ten times your money's worth.
