Although the CCR exam is not based on any specific books or reference materials, this list of recommended publications includes titles that address the bulk of the content areas included in the CCR content outline. The CSR series offers a structured program of self study organized around the industry's competency model. The other titles also cover topics relevant to the exam content, but do not necessarily include a self-study component. As a reminder, candidates are responsible for demonstrating knowledge defined by the content outline and should prepare for the exam using those reference materials they deem appropriate and necessary. All of these materials are available for purchase through the NACS Store. You may click on any title to go directly to the NACS Store listing and item information.
