NOTE: Use of the CRC Interactive Practice Test is not required to pursue or obtain CRC Certification and does not guarantee success on the CRC Exam. While the questions within the CRC Interactive Practice Test may address a specific theory or disability, they are, by no means, the only theories and disabilities covered in an actual CRC Exam. Furthermore, CRCC does not endorse or recommend other study guides or CRC Exam preparation materials that may be available on the market as we have not been involved in their development and therefore cannot attest to the accuracy or comprehensive nature of the content contained in those materials.
