Frequently Asked Questions
Reviewing for the IDFX and IDPX takes a lot of reading.
Our study schedule leaves 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 with a practice test. Based on what you missed, spend some extra 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.
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.
You will have unlimited 24/7 access to your practice test for the entire term of your purchase period, at any time of day or night.
You can take both the practice tests and content area quizzes as many times as you want.

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. Then they use statistical analysis to ensure that each administration are equal.
Because it does not make sense to score a practice test the same way, Qpractice allows you to retake your test over and over again. 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.
No, but our questions cover the same content areas as provided by NCIDQ.
While it is unlikely that any question would be identical, you may see some similar questions.
Qpractice’s tests cover the exam content areas in same proportion of questions per content area as the actual exam.
Our members who have taken both versions, and the IDFX & IDPX felt that we covered similar content and difficulty level. Many preferred that you could take our tests more than once.
