We’ve helped thousands of interior designers pass the NCIDQ Exams the first time…and we’d like to help you, too.
The worst thing you can do is go into the NCIDQ Exams unprepared.
It costs too much — time, money, and lost career opportunities — not to get it right the first time.
What you need is to focus on studying the right things.
Our team of NCIDQ Certificate holders and licensed designers have been in your shoes, and we have helped thousands of designers like you realize big dreams of interior design mastery…by helping you determine where to focus your energy for the exam.
A big part of passing the NCIDQ exams is understanding the format, timing, and scoring of the tests themselves — not just the concepts.
Many designers won’t realize that – they’ll lose precious time going into the exam only half prepared, without any practice.
Simply reading a book or taking a weekend crash course isn’t enough — you need a proven, practical NCIDQ Exam prep program that walks you step-by-step through how to:
You need a proven path that takes the mystery out of earning NCIDQ Certification and shines a light on what you need to know to pass all three exams – the first time you take them.
For so many of us, just the thought of taking an exam stirs up stress. The studying and preparation… the worrying about whether we’ve covered the right material. And then, of course, there’s the actual writing of the exam.
We’ve all been there! From high school to college and beyond, we’ve crammed and memorized and struggled to do our best.
Recent research has shown that cramming and memorization won’t help you prepare as much as one deceptively simple technique:
As it turns out, pretesting can raise your score on the exam by an average of 10%.
This recent development in learning science tells us that taking pretests can help you achieve success on the final exam.
Elizabeth Ligon Bjork, a psychologist from U.C.L.A., found in her research that pretesting can raise your score on the final exam by an average of ten percent. That’s enough to mean the difference between passing and failing the NCIDQ Exam.
Traditional studying can trick your brain into a false sense of security. You think you’ve mastered concepts and ideas, but when exam day comes, you blank out.
Why? You’re less likely to understand a subject with passive studying because you simply tried to memorize it.
Using pretesting, you can actually change how your brain thinks.
Even giving wrong answers on a pretest can change how your brain remembers and recalls data. This sets your brain – and you – up for future success by helping you “fail forward.”
When you use pretesting to study for the IDFX, IDPX, and PRAC exams, you’re more likely to be relaxed and perform at your best on exam day.
NCIDQ Exam Complete is the all-in-one prep course to help you get ready for the IDFX, IDPX, and PRAC Exams.

…even if you’ve tried to pass the exams before and failed.
