    I purchased this guide about 3 months before taking the NCIDQ exam. I used the study guide it provided and read this book cover to cover. It is a must-have study guide if you plan to take the exam and not take a study course. It was very thorough and easy to understand.

    Considering the nature of and volume of information in this manual, it is in a remarkably easy to understand format. I am impressed with how organized and well laid out it is and the effort that must have gone into putting so much information together. As Ballast covers in his acknowledgements…every five years the NCIDQ commissions a practice analysis that is made to ensure the exam “continues to accurately assess the knowledge and skills needed by interior designers” and this book is updated accordingly and adds two new topics covered on the exam and also reorganized the content to match the new exam specifications. With each section the order of topics follows the order of the exam specifications. All code information has been updated to the 2009 International Building Code.
    Thoroughly covers all sections. It also includes information on preparing for the actual exam that is extremely useful such as all the materials you’ll need on exam day, what is not allowed on exam day, problems you may encounter, what happens after the exam etc.
    Short of sending a computer or robot in to take the exam for you, this manual really does include everything you need to know to pass the exam.

    This is a comprehensive study guide, spanning nearly 600 pages, for the NCIDQ (National Council for Interior Design Qualification) Exam. It can also be used as a design reference on the job.

    Before you buy this book or register to take the exam, you should check the latest test-taking eligibility requirements. According to NCIDQ, “at least six years of combined college-level interior design education and interior design work experience” are required. If the college education is not CIDA (Council for Interior Design Accredidation)-accredited, then it must have “no less than 120 semester or 180 quarter credits, of which no less than 60 semester or 90 quarter credits are interior design coursework”. There are five different routes to attain qualification for taking the NCIDQ exam. There is a chart which you can download from the NCIDQ website.

    If you want to use this book as a study guide for the NCIDQ Exam, rather than a reference manual, I’d suggest you to also get practice questions for sections 1, 2, and 3. They are not inexpensive; each book is about 100 pages long and costs $44 to $65.
