What you'll learn in this test prep class:

The NCIDQ exam is the qualifying exam for certification of Interior Designers. The exam consists of 3 sections to be completed following the approval of eligible educational requirements.

The three sections are:

IDFX: Interior Design Fundamentals Exam - A 125 question multiple choice exam encompassing the topics of: building systems and construction, programming and site analysis, human behavior and the designed environment, construction drawing and specifications.

IDPX: Interior Design Professional Exam - A 150 question multiple choice exam covering topics of: codes and standards, building systems and integration, project coordination, professional and business practices.

PRAC 2.0: Practicum Exam - An examination of 3 case studies: large commercial, small commercial, and residential. This exam will have candidates answer questions covering project scenarios, universal codes, lighting design, life safety, egress, systems integration, restroom design, millwork design and space planning.

This course, in both its on-site and online formats is designed to provide an overview and simulation of the NCIDQ exam including: exam format, study tips, helpful handouts, exam writing strategies and exam simulation. This course will break down test taking strategies for all three sections of the exam, with a focus on the new digital PRAC 2.0. It will provide an understanding of the test objectives and examine questions to identify the logical reasoning behind a correct answer.

Participants will complete exercises that simulate the PRAC 2.0, IDFX and IDPX exams followed by review, analysis and explanation. Participants should review the suggested reading materials prior to the sessions and be prepared to write a mock NCIDQ PRAC 2.0 exam along with IDFX and IDPX quizzes.

Question from Camia B.
Can you please advise what the course material is, for this course? I'm also enrolled in Qpractice and I have several books and practice test that I've already paid for so if I enroll I want to make sure gaining different information than what I'm already paying for or can read on CIDQ website. Thoughts?
Answer from Jenn C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Camia! At this time, the school is still in the process of updating the course description to cover expansions to the course to a complete two-day exam prep with a practice test administered to students over the two-day class. Watch out for those updates soon!
