Frequently Asked Questions

NCIDQ Practice Tests

How long do I have access to the practice tests?

You will have unlimited access to your practice test for the entire term of your purchase period, at any time of day or night.

Qpractice members have access to their practice tests for the entire term of their membership –  from 1 season  to 1 full year with our retake guarantee.

You can take both the practice tests and content area quizzes as many times as you want.

How many hours a week do I need to study?

I am taking both multiple choice sections – the IDFX and the IDPX – at the same time. In your professional opinion, how many hours a week do you think I should study?

That’s a great question.  We advise Qpractice members to consider their work and family commitments and choose a realistic schedule before deciding which exam sections to take during the same season.

Reviewing for the IDFX and IDPX takes a lot of reading, so with an average to good reading speed you should be able to accomplish the reading review portion of our study schedule for either plan in about 2 – 3 weeks if you put in a couple of hours each day/evening. We leave you some time free on the weekends to catch up or take a break.

Then you will need to spend some time after your reading review with a practice test. Based on what you missed, spend some additional time going over that material. Then test again. You can take our practice test unlimited times throughout the testing season.

That said – if your schedule is tight – don’t worry. Plan ahead, and study when it is convenient for you.

Are your NCIDQ practice tests scored the same as the NCIDQ Exam?

The NCIDQ Exam is not scored like a typical exam.

The NCIDQ Exam is scaled with scores from 200 (0 correct) to 800 (all correct), with the minimum passing score set at 500.

Some questions are thrown out and considered “experimental” and in need of further editing, and then statistical analysis is used to compare different administrations of the exam, for example – the spring exam to the fall exam, to ensure that they are equal in difficulty.

Qpractice allows you to retake your test over and over again, and you can see the percentage of questions you got correct, as well as the correct answers and explanations for each question.

If you’re scoring 80 – 90% you’re doing well,  40 – 50% –  you need to study more.

Are your NCIDQ practice tests the same questions as the Prometric tests?

Can you please advise if your sample tests (IDFX and IDPX) are the same exact questions as NCIDQ sample questions provided thru Prometrics? 

No, but our questions cover the same content areas as provided by NCIDQ.

While it is unlikely that any question would be identical, yet because Qpractice’s tests cover the exam content areas in same proportion of questions per content area as the actual exam, you may see some similar questions.

Some of our members have taken both versions of the IDFX & IDPX and felt that we covered similar content and difficulty level, but preferred that you could take our tests more than once.

Our practice tests are also designed to simulate the actual test day – they are timed to give you the same number of questions in the same amount of time that you’ll have on exam day – so you can better assess how well you did.

System Requirements

How do I access Qpractice and the NCIDQ practice tests?

We created Qpractice to make studying for the NCIDQ easy and convenient, especially for those without access to a study group in their area, or who just have busy schedules and want to study on their own time.

Here’s what you need:
  • For all Qpractice Study Plans: Computer with internet access and modern web browser – We suggest using the latest version of Google Chrome – Free for Mac or PC
  • For live NCIDQ Office Hours: Computer with microphone, audio and high-speed internet connection with ability to stream audio & video*
    If your computer or internet connection speed or quality does not support streaming audio/video, you can still watch recordings and summaries, but our members who participate live get the most benefit

Our website and emails can even be viewed from your mobile device or iPad, and you may use your iPad for Office Hours, also.

If you have technical issues, we’ve found that most can be solved by upgrading to the latest version of your browser and operating system.

Can I stop and start the practice test?

The Qpractice tests are designed to prepare you for the experience of taking the exam in both timing and delivery.

While you can certainly take a break during the test, just like the real exam – you cannot stop the timer.

You can, however take the test as many times as you want; you will just get a different random batch of questions next time.

We designed our practice tests to simulate the actual exam experience for you. Plan to spend the same amount of time as on exam day.

If you want to spend less time, take the content area quizzes, they are 15 questions each.

For example, when you take our NCIDQ IDFX practice test, you will have:

  • 3 hours timed
  • 125 questions randomly delivered from our pool of IDFX questions

Tests the NCIDQ content areas of:

  • Building systems
  • Construction Standards
  • Design Application

Our NCIDQ IDPX practice test will give you:

  • 4 hours timed
  • 175 questions randomly delivered from our pool of IDPX questions

Tests the NCIDQ content areas of:

  • Building systems
  • Codes
  • Professional Practice
  • Project Coordination

Each time you finish the test, you’ll receive a printable score, the complete results by email and be able to review the percentage you got correct, as well your answers and the correct answers and explanations for each question. Keep in mind that you will not receive a score if you do not complete the exam, so plan ahead and allow for the full amount of time for your practice test.
