The National Council for Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ) certifies interior designers through a nationally administered exam. Professional Publications's study package for this exam includes a comprehensive subject review book and a practice exam for the part of the test examinees fail most often.

For the thousands of interior designers in the United States and Canada each year who take the National Council for Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ) certification exam, the Interior Design Reference Manual is the ultimate study guide -- the only one recommended by the NCIDQ.

Passing the exam is a prerequisite for membership in the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID), the Interior Designers of Canada (IDC), and the International Interior Design Association (IIDA).

The Interior Design Reference Manual covers all exam topics -- organized in sections that correspond to the major divisions of the test -- and reinforces key concepts with numerous illustrations and tables.

More than 200 practice problems with solutions give readers practice with all types of questions on the exam.

User Review  - janepriceestrada - LibraryThing

This is a test prep book for the interior design licensing exam. I have now read through it twice. All the material is there and clear, but I wish it had more information on the practicum section of the exam which is the hardest and needs the most explanation. Read full review

User Review  - Malee Cherry - Goodreads

Got this as study material for NCIDQ, but wish I read Professional Practice instead. Good reference book, though. Read full review
