Here is what some of our customers have to say about Cracking the IR Code:

“Stacie’s Cracking the IR Code book has changed my life! I only had 14 months of experience in coding Diagnostic Radiology when I purchased her book. After self-studying Stacie’s book on and off for about 5 months I took and passed the CIRCC on my first attempt! When I passed the CIRCC I had a total of 18 months of experience in coding; if I can pass the CIRCC with little to no experience due to Stacie’s guidance, so can you! I still reference her book on a daily basis.”

“Just want to drop a note to thank you! Your Cracking the IR code book made all the difference for me in passing my CIRCC exam. It is also a great resource that I rely on daily in my job. Thank you!!”

“I purchased this after I took the CIRCC, if I had known about this resource beforehand it would have made the test a lot less stressful! The anatomical charts are beautiful! It is down to earth and I utilize it daily. I am so grateful for this. Thank you!! For anyone coding IR I would suggest budgeting this into your yearly book purchases probably-well worth it.”
