How to Pass the NCIDQ Examination, using our easy step-by-step NCIDQ exam study guide, without weeks and months of endless studying...

Dear Friend,

On a beautiful late spring afternoon, this past year, a young woman received the devastating news. She had just gotten back her result on the NCIDQ exam. It was not what she had hoped for. In fact, it was not even close to the expectations she had considering her past experience and educational background.

She had failed.

Then she remembered her friends and felt even worse. She did not look forward to having to tell them the embarrassing news, especially after she had boasted that it was no big deal. She had been procrastinating about taking the exam because she hated standardized tests, and this only confirmed her hatred.

"What will I do now?" she thought with dismay, slowly realizing the harsh reality of her predicament and its upsetting implications on her future.

How to Solve the Problem

Unfortunately, this hypothetical situation occurs all the time. Someone thought they were going to breeze through the examination, told all their friends, made plans for their future, and then got an embarrassing reality check from the NCIDQ exam.

The NCIDQ Examination is quite simply an objective assessment of a test taker's requisite foundation of knowledge and skills.

NCIDQ exam scores are used by the National Council for Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ) as a uniform standard of qualification. While it may not be fair, all of a person's plans for the future may be dependent upon needing a certain NCIDQ exam score.

That is the whole purpose of the NCIDQ Exam Secrets study guide: to give test takers the keys to understand how to succeed on the NCIDQ exam.

Our NCIDQ Exam Study Guide Is Unlike Any Other

If you'd like to get the NCIDQ exam score you deserve, to quit worrying about whether your score on the NCIDQ exam is good enough, and to beat the test taking game so you can become a interior designer, then this might be the most important message you read this year.

Our comprehensive study guide for the NCIDQ exam is written by our exam experts, who painstakingly researched the topics and the concepts that you need to know to do your best on the NCIDQ exam. Our original research into the NCIDQ Examination, offered by the National Council for Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ), reveals the specific content areas and the essential skills that are critical for you to know on the SPEX exam. We've taken the information and developed a study guide that is guaranteed to help you be successful on the NCIDQ exam.

The Exclusive Test Taking Techniques

  • Learn why, when, and how to guess to your advantage. Many test takers use exactly the wrong strategy, but you can avoid the pitfalls with the help of our standardized test experts.
  • Why answers that sound correct are often the very ones that are wrong and how to tell the difference between the right answer and the many clever-sounding traps set for you by the test writers.
  • Our benchmark method for deciding which of the answer choices you should pick.
  • What to do about the tough questions that you have no clue how to answer. Don't just give up, use the advice we offer to make sure you give yourself the best chance of getting the right answer.
  • 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.

Before we go any further, let us clarify what NCIDQ Exam Secrets is not. It is not a stale rehash of all of the things you have already learned in the past.

"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!!"


Five Stars

"Just dropping you a note to let you know that I am completely satisfied with the product. I had already taken the test once and landed in the 75 percentile of those taking it with me. I took the test a second time and used some of your tips and raised my score to the 97 percentile. Thanks for my much improved score."
