I purchased this before I took the RICA and found it was helpful with suggestions on taking the test, and giving example tests. This was the only study guide available, so I do not have a good comparison, but I would recommend it for anyone who needs some study help with the RICA.

I used this book to help me pass the RICA and I did on the first try. It is very organized and detailed. I also recommend the CSET version as well.
